"Amour" actress Emmanuelle Riva is nominated for Best Actress at this year's Academy Awards, making her, at 85 years old, the oldest woman to be nominated in the category in Oscar history. And, if she takes home the statue this Sunday, she could break a record for the oldest person to ever win an Academy Award.

Oscar Sunday also happens to be a very special day for Riva since it’s her 86th birthday. We can’t think of a better birthday gift for her than to take home the gold and break the record!

Check out the vid to see which Oscar-winning actor Riva would steal the title from if she wins on Sunday.
