Last night’s 88th annual Academy Awards was full of memorable moments, performances, and a long overdue win for our boy Leonardo DiCaprio. But there was really only one star that was the talk of the town, Canada’s very own Jacob Tremblay. The nine-year-old star of Room has been a hit this entire awards season, even winning the Critics’ Choice award for Best Young Actor, but last night was definitely his best appearance yet.
Even before arriving at the show, the young star caused quite the stir on social media posting a photo with his unbelievably good-looking parents.
During one of his many red carpet interviews Jacob perfectly captured how all of us short people feel when we’re in a room full of giants.
And if we thought that was the end of him showing his love for Star Wars, we were wrong. During the show Jacob could hardly contain himself when some characters from the popular movie made an appearance on the Oscar stage.
And of course he couldn’t resist getting up close with the characters after the show, posting this adorable picture to his Instagram.
But Jacob’s love for Star Wars was not the end of his cuteness on during the show, he stole the show during his presentation of the award for Live Action Short Film with fellow young actor Abraham Attah from Beasts of No Nation. Host Chris Rock ran out with stools for the young men promoting Jacob to rave about Rock’s role as Marty in the animated movie Madagascar.

And to top it all off, Jacob gave us several adorable moments with his co-star Brie Larason. I mean, their selfie was everything.
And this hug after Brie took home the award for Best Actress was almost too much for us to handle.
Even the stars themselves couldn’t get enough of the adorable actor! Modern Family star Sofia Vergara shared not one, but two photos of our Canadian boy.
I mean who could be cooler than Jacob Tremblay? He will forever be the star of this year’s Academy Awards.
