Recognizing Child Actors This Award Season; Golden Globe Nominees
December 30, 2015
|From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, Child Stars of the Past and Present are the Talk of the Season
This is the time of year when Hollywood gets together to award one another for a job well done. From the Golden Globes to the Screen Actor's Guild Awards to the Oscars, child actors of both the past and present are making a big impact. This month, Children In Film is highlighting the standout performers who are earning praise at this year's major award ceremonies.
Children In Film will continue to keep you up-to-date on the Award Season buzz. Stay tuned as we highlight these inspiring performers as Hollywood gives them a pat-on-the-back for their incredible accomplishments. Like you, they started off with a goal and a dream and worked very hard, sometimes for many years, before ever receiving what the public would later deem their "breakout role."
These young-performers-turned-celebrities maintain a commitment to their careers through continual education, classes, networking events and giving-back efforts. You too can learn how to keep your career on the up-and-up via the rich resources available on Children In Film.
To get us started, this coming Sunday's 73rd Annual Annual Golden Globe Awards is filled with nominations and awards for former child stars.
