Jacob Tremblay stole the Critics’ Choice Awards with his adorable speech


The Critics’ Choice Awards always do a Best Young Actor Award, which is sort of nice. It’s just a way to recognize the talented young people working in the industry, and it’s almost always a really nice moment at an awards show when a kid wins something. This year, Jacob Tremblay was the winner. A lot of people think Tremblay should have gotten an Oscar nomination for his work in Room, but I’m kind of glad that he didn’t, just because I hate it when children are forced into the very adult world of Oscar-campaigning. I shouldn’t have worried about him though, because Jacob is a little pro. When he won at the Critics’ Choice Awards, his speech was easily the best part of the night, and all of the adults in the room were aw-ing over his cuteness.

You know what’s classy? This: “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.” But this was the best: “I know where to put this. Right on my shelf next to my Millennium Falcon.” It’s good that he’s still a kid, you know? The highlight of this awards season for Jacob is that he got to meet Oscar Isaac because of Star Wars. Sigh… adorable!

    It may be for the best.

    Being showered with Oscar nominations/wins, usually does not bode well in the long term for child actors.

    I bet he didn’t tell off any journalists for holding their phones while interviewing him.

    He is the cutest thing. I could just hug hug him he has those amazing eyes and so fantastic in the role. Happiest day of his 9 long years 🙂

    He was so good in Room. I think he was better than Brie and although I want her to win, I do wish they would have nominated him for the Oscar because he was that good.

  9. Alex says:

    He is so cute. That speech was the best thing all night.
    I do think he should’ve gotten an Oscar nom his work was just that good.
    He also has a Twitter acct and its sooooooo cute. Full of “I got to meet my favorite actors!” And pictures with his mom and dad. It’s adorable

    What a good kid. Way to do restore hope for the future, Jacob!
    And a shoutout to his parents, who are clearly doing a great job raising him.

    Him standing on the box and still being unable to reach the mic just made my heart melt and my ovaries dance a jig.

  13. Kelly says:

    So adorable.

    What an amazing, self-possessed young man!! I kind of teared up at how eloquent and sweet he was, and at the way everyone in the room responded to him. I think if he can avoid the child star thing, he will prove to be quite a special talent. Holy moly, how cute that was!!

    I haven’t watched Room yet but it’s on my list. And Jacob really is adorable. Check out his interview with Jimmy Kimmel last week. He was FUN on the show and I’ve been rooting for him ever since.

    He won me over, new fan here.
