In 1991 Anna went to the audition of the film The Piano to avoid having to go to class that day and accompany her sister, who was the one who initially appeared for the role of Flora.
She was cast in the role of an audition of more than 1,000 girl actresses. This film made her debut and was highly praised by critics as well as being worth an Oscar for the best-supporting actress at just eleven years old,
which made her the second-youngest winner of an Oscar in history, only behind Tatum O’Neal. The acceptance of the award was one of the most unique of the Oscars since when Anna took the stage to collect her statuette,
she stayed for more than 20 seconds without saying anything and laughing, making the entire Kodak theater laugh with her. When she finished her speech,
she sat back down with her parents, leaving Gene Hackman alone on stage with no winning actress to take to the press room. Anna is the first Canadian-born actress to win an Oscar and the only New Zealand actress to own one.

she won the Oscar for best actress for said performance and was also nominated in the same category for his supporting role in another film called The Firm. Years later, in 2007, Holly was named in the LA Times one of the actresses to have lost an Oscar with the most grace.
