It seems to be a Dakota kind of day today, and I’m not complaining! Just seeing the quick glimpse of her in the New Moon trailer was not enough.
The Daily Press has a FABULOUS(!!) photo gallery and look at Dakota Fanning’s life and career, which has spanned more than half of her life. The article has photos of Dakota from thoughout her life, and chronicles what the Daily Press calls, “the illustrious career of the finest (and one of the only) actresses of her generation.”
Here’s one of my favorites, from 2002 when she was the youngest person ever to be nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award:
2002: The actress is nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for supporting performance for her work in “I Am Sam.” She doesn’t win, but does win the Best Young Actor/Actress award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association. Because she is too short to reach the microphone, presenter Orlando Bloom holds her up for the duration of her acceptance speech.
