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.
Toronto International Film Festival
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.
Gal Gadot IS Girl Power, the end.
Patti, you see this face? It's perfect for Wonder Woman 2. Just hook it up, girl.
A24 Holiday Party
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.
Sorry my mom blinded you with her flash, Rob. You're the coolest.
Good Morning America
I think Daisy [Ridley] should have her own holiday. May the force always be with her.
Kelly Ripa has my nose, she can have it if she wants. Meeting her was magic.
There's pretty much no one in the world cooler than Daniel Kaluuya, or even in the whole galaxy.
W Magazine Best Performances Party
Lizzie [Olsen] is sweeter than waffles with extra extraaaa warm syrup.
Critics' Choice Awards
Jake is quite the gentleman, and a great ice cream date!
Angie for President!
