If you’ve been keeping up with all the awards season hubbub, you have probably fallen in love with Jacob Tremblay, the very charming young star of Room. This is Tremblay’s first awards season and he is nailing it — when he’s not snapping pics with Leonardo DiCaprio, he’s gracing late-night TV with his masterful impressions.
Here’s a look back at the best moments on his road to the Oscars, which is, decidedly, a lot cuter than some other roads.
When he was the politest presenter everABC
After Chris Rock brought out some extra height for Jacob and Abraham Attah, Jacob made sure to thank him with a personalized compliment. This kid, you guys.
When he made sure he had a clear view of his Star Wars favesABC
Oh, you thought BB-8 was going to be on stage and he wasn’t going to freak out? WRONG.
When he promised to hit up a few after-partiesEmbedded from media.mtvnservices.com.
His bedtime may be 8 PM, but that’s not gonna stop him from attending a few Oscars after-parties.
When he brought us behind the scenes of his arrival
Unlike most people, Jacob opted for a regular ol’ car than a limo for his arrival. Of course. A man of the people.
When he met Lady Gaga
OMG, how small is he?????? Lady Gaga is 5″1″!!!
When he met Jennifer Lawrence
He coined a nickname for himself to match hers: “J-Trem meets J-Law,” he captioned the photo. Yes. 100x yes.
When he (finally!) met Leo
Proving he is all of us, Jacob wrote beneath this photo, “This just happened!!! I finally met #leonardodicaprio #sagawards.” Our time will come, y’all.
When he went toe to toe with Sylvester Stallone
Or, like, tiny fist to chin. Same diff.
When he met the rest of his faves
Ahhhhh he’s so happy. Now I’m so happy!!!!
When he thanked Amy Schumer for tying his shoes
Jacob isn’t too proud to publicly thank Amy for helping him out with his laces — I appreciate his humility.
When he showed off his Blue Steel impression
If Zoolander 3 is ever to become a reality, Jacob proved he could take over for Ben Stiller.
When he celebrated Room’s Oscar noms like this
Nine going on…ninety?
When his “Uptown Funk” choreography gave Bruno Mars a run for his money
Jacob, you’re cordially invited to every party I ever host.
