Last year, it was Emma Roberts who was tapped as ShoWest's Female Star of Tomorrow. This year, Variety reports that it is Little Miss Sunshine, the super-cutey who is growing up in the blink of an eye, Abigal Breslin. I have to say, I'm completely in agreement over this pick. While she could've been a one-hit wonder with her portrayal of Olive Hooper, she quickly jumped out of that possible fate. She stole the show when she made a guest appearance on Grey's Anatomy, and while she might have taken a role in The Santa Clause 3, she's also got Definitely, Maybe, Nim's Island, and Kit Kittredge on the way.

But this is as much about future possibilities as it is about current success. Considering this, I had to use the same image that Variety used in their news blip. There's just something about the look on Breslin's face that skyrockets me into her future possibilities. Is it just me, or can you also see her playing some sort of tough-ass woman in about 10 years, as a champion of all things good, the professional face of strength, or as the steely face of evil? Something tells me that Breslin is the best Female Star of Tomorrow choice that ShoWest has made in a while.

But what do you think? Are you a fan of Breslin's work? Has her fame come and gone? Will it last for years to come? How do you think her professional future will play out?
