Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis is having an extraordinary time.

She is nominated for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild at only 9 years old—making her the youngest Best Actress nominee ever.

"It has been crazy," she told E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet tonight.

The young nominee chose to wear a navy, sparkly Armani dress, and of course she accessorized with one of her adorable puppy purses.

"This is a special dog it's renamed after my puppy I have at home—Sandy," she explained to Seacrest.

Special indeed.

Little Q is set to play the lead role in the film Annie, and Sandy is the name of little orphan Annie's dog, too.

And when asked if she was allowed to go to all of the extravagant parties after, her mom chimed in "Yes, we have an extended night tonight."

It sounds like Little Q has an amazing night in store for her and she deserves it!
