“This just happened!!! I finally met #leonardodicaprio,” he posted to Instagram.

The excitement continued when Jacob posed for a photo with fellow Canadian Rachel McAdams.

Tremblay presented the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries with "Room" co-star Brie Larson, stirring the room to laughter with his tongue-in-cheek introduction.

"I can still remember the first time I got nominated for a SAG award," the first-time nominee joked.
