The big winner that year was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, with one of the rare "sweeps" in the history of the Youth in Film Awards. The film won all categories for which it was nominated, taking a total of four awards – "Best 'Fantasy' Family Motion Picture", "Best Young Actor in a Motion Picture" for Henry Thomas, "Best Young Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture" for Robert MacNaughton and "Best Young Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture" for Drew Barrymore.[3]

Established in 1978 by long-standing Hollywood Foreign Press Association member, Maureen Dragone, the Youth in Film Association was the first organization to establish an awards ceremony specifically set to recognize and award the contributions of performers under the age of 21 in the fields of film, television, theater and music.[1][4][5]
