From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, Jacob Tremblay has injected awards season with a welcome and infectious dose of childhood wonder, and on Sunday (Mar. 13) the Vancouver native stole the show north of the border at the Canadian Screen Awards (CSAs). The Room star, who nabbed the award for Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, was thrilled to be representing the highly acclaimed drama back in his home country.
"I can't believe a kid like me won against a bunch of amazing, talented adults," the pint-sized star said in his acceptance speech. He then shouted out his most distinguished opponent: "Christopher Plummer, you're a legend."
Hot on the heels of his homegrown win, Jacob stopped by Hello! Canada's portrait studio to snap a few shots with celebrity photographer George Pimentel. The nine-year-old strolled in with a celebratory flute of sparkling apple juice and said his heart was pounding when they read his name. Earlier, on the red carpet, he shared his excitement over an upcoming trip to Japan (and even ate sushi right before the show!).
One of the most-nominated projects at the prestigious awards event, Room scored a total of nine statues, and Jacob was surely over-the-moon to be sharing the win with his co-star Brie Larson, who took home the prize for Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.
The child star has proven time and time again that not only is he the most adorable person to have in your squad but he's also one of the most supportive. He's made no secret of the fact that he's been rooting for Brie through awards season, jumping up to hug and cheer on his on-screen mom when she won her first Oscar in February.
Jacob's celebrity selfies and love of Star Wars have left Hollywood all smiles since he exploded onto the scene thanks to his heart-wrenching performance in Room. With his parents by his side, he's gone from winning his first Critic's Choice award to presenting at the Oscars - where he was given a wooden box so he could reach the microphone (before complementing Chris Rock on his work in Madagascar) - and even made a splash for paying Sofia Vergara a special complement on Instagram.
