The Academy Awards were born in 1929. One of the nominees at tomorrow's Oscars ceremony was born two years before that. French actress Emmanuelle Riva, who turns 86 Sunday, is nominated for best actress for her role in "Amour." She is the oldest nominee ever in that category. The oldest person nominated for an Oscar in an acting role was Gloria Stuart, 87 when she was up for best supporting actress for 1997's "Titanic."
