Youngest Oscar winners

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

One of my Facebook friends shocked me by pointing out that Ted Cruz is eight years younger than Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

A fair mix of both.

I was born the same year as Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz and, setting politics aside, I do find that a little unsettling. At some point in my life, our president will be younger than I am. I'm not ready for that quite yet.

I remember when my doctor was first younger than me. I didn't like that at all. Darn kids and their big grown-up jobs. By the next election, some of my kids will be old enough to run for president! Not that they will, thank goodness.

My "shit, I'm getting old" realization...

I was born in '74 and I recently found out that I'm older than Justin Bieber's mother.

Now that Steve Nash is retired, I am older than every single person playing in the NBA.

That's not true of the NHL, though. I can think Jaromir Jagr for that.

Time to update the list of youngest winners. Barry Jenkins was born in 1979, but nine others were born after January 1, 1980. The list is getting longer now, as 30-something winners become more common. I may have to truncate the list to start in 1985.

Good news: Graham Moore finally has a birthday! Bad news: Orlando von Einsiedel, Joanna Natasegara, and 2-time winner Justin Hurwitz don't. I don't even have a birth year for Natasegara -- I'm estimating based on when she graduated college.

00/00/1980 Orlando von Einsiedel (Documentary Short, awarded in 2017)
10/17/1980 Tarell Alvin McCraney (Adapted Screenplay, 2017)
00/00/1981 Joanna Natasegara (Documentary Short, 2017)
03/31/1981 Ryan Bingham (Original Song, 2010)
06/09/1981 Natalie Portman (Lead Actress, 2011)
09/12/1981 Jennifer Hudson (Supporting Actress, 2007)
10/18/1981 Graham Moore (Adapted Screenplay, 2015)
01/06/1982 Eddie Redmayne (Lead Actor, 2015)
06/07/1982 Kristóf Deák (Live Action Short, 2017)
07/24/1982 Anna Paquin (Supporting Actress, 1994)
11/12/1982 Anne Hathaway (Supporting Actress, 2013)
03/01/1983 Lupita Nyong'o (Supporting Actress, 2014)
09/18/1984 Jimmy Napes (Original Song, 2016)
00/00/1985 Justin Hurwitz (Original Score, Original Song, 2017)
01/03/1985 Justin Paul (Original Song, 2017)
01/19/1985 Damien Chazelle (Director, 2017)
06/09/1985 Benj Pasek (Original Song, 2017)
02/28/1988 Markéta Irglová (Original Song, 2008)
05/05/1988 Adele (Original Song, 2013)
10/03/1988 Alicia Vikander (Supporting Actress, 2016)
11/06/1988 Emma Stone (Lead Actress, 2017)
10/01/1989 Brie Larson (Lead Actress, 2016)
08/15/1990 Jennifer Lawrence (Lead Actress, 2013)
05/19/1992 Sam Smith (Original Song, 2016)

Weird bit of somewhat related trivia. Halle Berry has now presented the award to the youngest ever winners for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Adrien Brody) and Best Director (Damien Chazelle). I thought of it as I was watching live last night, and I wondered for a moment if Chazelle was going to kiss her.
