Leo wasn't the only young actor nominated by the Academy to find continued success. Take Anna Paquin, who starred in 1993's "The Piano" at the age of 11. The role won Paquin the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, making her the second youngest winner in history after fellow child star Tatum O'Neal, who was 10 when she won for "Paper Moon."
