Take a break and watch the child star of Room give a great awards speech

“This is the best day of my life.”

JACOB TREMBLAY WON a Critics’ Choice Awards last night for his performance in Room.

The nine-year-old scooped the gong for Best Young Actor/Actress at the ceremony.

The Canadian actor won many fans with his very sweet speech after winning his “super cool” award.

This is the best day of my life. I first want to say thank you to all the criticis who voted for me. It must be a super hard vote because of  all the other great actors in this category.

Tremblay went on to thank the cast and crew of Room, saying the award “goes to all of you guys as well”.

He also gave a shout out to his parents, telling the crowd: “I love them very much.”

Tremblay knows exactly where to put the award, on the shelf beside his Millennium Falcon toy.
