Brooklynn Prince is 7 years old, 4’1” tall, and clearly living her best life. 

Even when she’s making us cry as Moonee in The Florida Project (or as herself, accepting a Critics’ Choice Award), her radiant joie de vivre is impossible to miss. Maybe that explains how she’s made more new friends in a single awards season than the average adult will make in an entire lifetime.

In the spirit of friendship, we’ve put together an awards season yearbook, of sorts, celebrating all of Brooklynn’s new besties. Annotations are her own.

Helen [Mirren] is so fashionable, I showed her 2 pairs of sunglasses I had in my purse and she chose the best ones, so I wore them.

Elle is a real life Disney Princess, she's very kind. Meeting her was Wowie Wow Wow.

Saoirse is like an ice cream sundae on a hot day. I love her.

I wanna be just like Lois Smith. I wanna start acting and never stop.
