Abigail Breslin

100,000 Reasons She

NEEDS to Win an Oscar

EXCLUSIVE

Most 17-year-olds feel pressure to get into a good college, but not Abigail Breslin ... the teenage A-lister has $100,000 riding on whether or not she can nab an Academy Award from her upcoming flick.

According to Abigail's minor's contract -- recently obtained by TMZ -- the lil star was paid $75,000 for two weeks worth of work on a film called "August: Osage County" shot last fall. It also stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Now here's the interesting part ... in AB's contract a special clause was added just for awards ... which states if Abigail wins the Golden Globe for best supporting actress she nabs a $50,000 bonus.

There's more ... if Abigail wins an Oscar she gets ANOTHER $50,000. And if she wins both, they throw her the whole shebang. Plus all that other stuff like: respect, honor, esteem, ... yadda, yadda.

Of course with moves like these, it's in the bag ...

Entertainment the only profession in the world that needs awards to validate if they are good or not.

She is beautiful and i think she needs better Agents because if she is Almost 18 Years Old and Working in Movies for only $75,000 then something is NOT right, She needs to get into a Nice Franchise Movie to get the Big Buck$$$, if Kristen Stewart made $34.5 MILLION in 2012 then anything is Possible...

Classic scene TMZ - still jerks tears at the end where no-one other than the sound guy applauds! Argh ...

A lot to live up to for Abigail - as with Anna Paquin in The Piano - but Anna has shown you can keep to the (decent) script and have a great adult life, hope that Abigail B has the same support to get her there too.

Those clauses are total BULL$#!.T for an actor--unless you're just looking for publicity.
An athlete has at least some control over his abilities.
An actor has no control whatsoever over what awards they win.

I would have thought even an up and coming actress like her would have received more money for a movie than $75k.

She looks WAY older than 17. And that is not a compliment especially when her azz hits 30 and she looks 50.
