If there was a Critics' Choice category for Cutest Acceptance Speech, Jacob Tremblay would definitely win. The 9-year-old "Room" actor took home the award for Best Young Actor/Actress at Sunday's 21st annual Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California.
Even though Tremblay could barely reach the microphone and "Damien" star Bradley James had to hold it lower for him, the young actor sweetly thanked his parents, "Room" producers and the rest of his team.
"This is the best day of my life," he said excitedly. "It must be a super hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category… This award just doesn’t go to me, it goes to all of you as well."
Tremblay beat out Abraham Attah from "Beasts of No Nation," RJ Cyler from "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl," Shameik Moore from "Dope" and Milo Parker from "Mr. Holmes" for the award.
He also told the audience at the ceremony that he already knows exactly where his Critics' Choice award will be on display.
"Right on the shelf besides my Millennium Falcon," he said referencing Han Solo's "Star Wars" vehicle.
“Room” is also nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress (Brie Larson) and Best Adapted Screenplay.
