Stars Aim For Age Records At The Oscars
Ruby Dee, Hal Holbrook and Ellen Page will set new age records if they win gold at the Oscars next month (Feb08). All three have been nominated for best acting and supporting roles. If Dee or Holbrook, who are both 83, win Best Supporting honours for their roles in American Gangster and Into The Wild respectively they will become the oldest stars to win acting accolades at the Academy Awards. Juno's Page, who turns 21 on 21 February (08), will be the youngest Best Actress winner if she takes home the statuette on 24 February (08). That record is currently held by Marlee Matlin, who was 21 years and seven months when she claimed her Oscar for Children Of A Lesser God in 1986.
