    BUMP — Nearly 3 years after its post. 

    I Google’d “Youngest Emmy nominees and winners ever,” and this post was like the fourth result that came up! Can all of the smart minds at GoldDerby come together and research this?

    Nominees and winners in each of the acting categories is what info I’m seeking. My curiosity was actually sparked by Claire Danes:

    – Is Claire Danes the youngest Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee ever (for My So-Called Life)? She was 16.

    I am somewhat sure the youngest Emmy nominee ever was Keisha Knight Pulliam who was six when she was nominated.

    I believe the youngest Emmy winner ever was Roxanne Zal who was 14 when she won for “There’s Something About Amelia”.

    This should help:

    Going way back, Evelyn Rudie was nominated for Best Single Performance by an Actress for Playhouse 90‘s production “Eloise,” which was an adaptation of the children’s book. The “Single Performance” categories were forerunners of today’s Miniseries/Movie and Guest acting categories. Back then, you could be nominated for an episode of a dramatic anthology series like Playhouse 90 (these were often live productions or dramatizations of plays or novels) or a guest appearance in a traditional continuing series. Rudie was 7-years-old at the time of the 1957 Emmys ceremony.

    That was for the Daytime Emmys. An Emmy is an Emmy, but that’s the likely answer you’re gonna get from everybody as I’m sure the original poster meant Primetime Emmys.

    I suppose Keisha Knight Pulliam is the correft answer.

    Also, Jodelle Ferland was 6 going on 7 when she got that Daytime Emmy nomination…

    The youngest Primetime Emmy WINNER was Roxanna Zal (Supporting Actress) for the TV movie Something About Amelia, with Ted Danson and Glenn Close. She was 14.
