The 9-year-old "Room" star won the Best Young Actor trophy — along with every audience member's heart — at the Critics' Choice Awards Sunday night.

"This is super cool!" the charismatic boy told the crowd, adding, "This is the best day of my life."

Tremblay, who co-stars with Brie Larson in the film about a mother and son held captive in a small space, went on to charm the audience by graciously praising everyone who contributed to his big win.

"I first want to say thank you to all the critics who voted for me," he began. "It must be a super-hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category. I also want to thank team 'Room,' who is Lenny, Emma, Brie, Ed and all the other producers over there, and all the other cast and crew."
