The Cutest Speech EVER Made

It is safe to say that 9-year old Room star, Jacob Tremblay, has won America’s heart. If you didn’t already love him, after last nights Critics’ Choice Awards acceptance speech for Best Young Actor, you literally have no choice but to love him.

I’m no award speech expert but the 9-year old boy wonder gave us yet again another amazing performance. He made us laugh, he almost made us cry, and he gave thanks to his team and the people who got him there, including his mom and dad. He gave us the feels big time.

Why Jacob Tremblay’s Critics’ Choice speech is the cutest, greatest thing EVER:

His Opener

He starts off with, “Wooooah, this is so cool! This is the best day of my life,” as he looms well under the microphone stand. This had the audience laughing and “awwww-ing,” as Bradley James adjusts the mic for the lil J.

His Thank Yous

“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 of the other great actors in this category.” He was up against 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. What a classy little guy.

He also thanks “Team Room,” which includes: Lenny Abrahamson, the director, Emma Donoghue, the writer, Brie Larson, his co-star and onscreen Ma, all the producers and the rest of the cast and crew.

As he touches his heart he says, ”I think that us working together made this movie come true.” WHO EVEN IS THIS KID AND WHY IS HE SO PERFCT? Swooning everywhere.

His last thank you goes out to his parents, who as the camera hits seem to be so proud. Mom seems to be holding back tears while dad is just smiling and being the hot dad that he is.

His Closer

And then it gets better. I know you don’t think it’s possible but it is. “I know where to put this, right on the shelf beside my Millennium Falcon.” YASSSS! The Star Wars fans of the world all fell out of their seats last night. What a way to end a speech.

Jacob Tremblay, the man, the hero, really knows how to work a room. I’m not sure if it’s his gentle adolescent voice, his sweet allure or the fact that he is 9 years old and gave a live speech like a straight up boss. My answer: all of the above.
