     It is that time of year again where I personally select favorites for my TOP TEN LIST OF HOLLYWOOD’S MOST TALENTED YOUTH! The candidates (18 yrs and under) are selected strictly from the interviews that I have conducted with them, which intern ran in my Weekly Internationally/Nationally Syndicated Entertainment Column as a photo-interview feature. If I didn’t interview you – you don’t qualify for my list! It’s that simple (hint publicists, young artists and anyone else who feels left out)!

     As with every year, my hat goes off in a major salute to the parents of these exceptional young artists who have made untold sacrifices well beyond what many parents would be willing to make such as pulling up stakes and moving the entire family to LA or whatever else it took for their child or children to make it in the biz. The ten winners selected are without question the best of the best! They too have sacrificed, trained hard, done without and burned gallons of the midnight oil it took to get to where they are and they are just getting started! Rych McCain salutes all ten of you who are now a part of my media family and I wish that the best is yet to come for each of you! May continued success be yours! 

     The ladies on my list will receive The San Francisco Collection Nail Lacquer kit by O.P.I., the world’s leading beauty marketer for nail Lacquers.

The awardees are listed alphabetically starting with:

Onota Aprile

1.  Onota Aprile (age 7); Onota has the distinction of being the baby of this year’s List. She basically carried the entire film in her lead role as Maisie, a child torn between two fighting divorced parents in “What Maisie Knew” for Millennium  Films.
