Tremblay won Best Young Actor/Actress for his stunning performance in Irish director Lenny Abrahamson's Room, adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue.

"This is super cool.  This is the best day of my life!" declared the young Canadian actor, struggling to reach the microphone as the camera panned across the crowd of people declaring, 'Oh my God, how cute?' and clutching their chests.

Presenter Bradley James held the microphone stand so that Jacob could continue unhindered.

"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," he said.

"I also want to thank team Room who is Lenny, Emma, Brie and all the other producers over there and all the other cast and crew."

Jacob then shared his award with everyone who worked on the film.

"I think that us working together made this movie come true.  This award doesn't just go to me for that it goes to all you other guys as well."

He also thanked his parents, who were spotted bursting with pride in the crowd.

"I also want to thank my parents and I love them very much.  And I know where to put this - right beside my Millennium Falcon."
