Why Willow Smith dominated 2010.
Neither of them may be old enough to watch a PG-13 movie but Jaden and Willow Smith have both earned NAACP Image Award nominations.

Jaden, 12, is up for the Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture award for his work in The Karate Kid while Willow, 10, earned nominations for Outstanding New Artist and Outstanding Music Video for “Whip My Hair.”

Willow is up against a bevy of hit-makers in the Outstanding New Artist category including Bruno Mars and current V cover girl Nicki Minaj.

Willow will also go against Beyonce and Alicia Keys in the Outstanding Music Video category. Do you think she has a chance of winning? Check out Willow’s “Whip My Hair” music video below.

Jaden will face off against seasoned actors in the Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture, including Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman.

Rihanna, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake also snagged nominations.

In case you’re wondering why Willow and Jaden look so familiar, they are the children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

The NAACP Image Awards will air on March 4th at 8/7 CT on Fox.
