If you didn’t catch the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards last night, you missed the greatest award acceptance speech ever made. And it came from 9-year-old Canadian actor Jacob Tremblay.
The pint-sized Vancouverite won the ‘Best Young Actor’ award for his role as Jack Newsome in Room, and when he came up on stage to collect his crystal statue, the little guy delivered the most honest, innocent, and appreciative acceptance speech of all time.
“Whoa! This is super cool. This is the best day of my life,” Tremblay declared, decked out in his tiny tux. “I first want to say thank you to all the critics who voted for me. It must be a super hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category.”
He then proceeded to thank all of his fellow actors and producers, with a special thanks to his parents to cap it off.
He also mentioned that he plans to store the award next to his Millennium Falcon on his bookshelf. The hearts of the entire audience collectively melted.
You need to watch the full speech below, it’s the greatest ever. What a cool little man.
