Room‘s young star Jacob Tremblay won the award in the Best Young Actor/Actress category at the Critics’ Choice Awards and then won over the crowd (and the audience at home, judging by the immediate reaction on Twitter) with his acceptance speech. Tremblay did a great job of not only thanking everyone he should, but also just being a kid and telling the world that his trophy will go on his shelf right next to his Millennium Falcon. Damien star Bradley James helped out by holding the microphone so Tremblay could be heard.
Later in the evening, Tremblay’s co-star Brie Larson earned the Best Actress award but wasn’t available to pick up the honor in person.
For those who missed it or just want to watch the adorableness all over again, A&E Networks is sharing Jacob Tremblay’s acceptance speech on YouTube:
