Paul Dano with a date at the Oscars

Actor Paul Dano (right) poses for photos with his date at the 79th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars). This was at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, California on February 25, 2007. Paul Dano was not nominated for an Oscar that year, but his career was heating up after his co-starring turn in the 2006 comedy Little Miss Sunshine and filming a prominent supporting role in There Will Be Blood, released in 2007. Paul Dano was born in 1984, so he turned 23 the year this photo was taken.
