Forget the Hollywood hunks and starlets. The real winner of Thursday's 2018 Critics' Choice Awards was a 7-year-old superstar who invited her fellow nominees to ice cream.

Brooklynn Prince, the young breakout star of acclaimed drama The Florida Project, tearfully thanked God upon winning Best Young Actor/Actress at Thursday night's awards show and offered up an invitation to dessert afterward.

“This is such a big honor, all the nominees are great," she said. "You guys are awesome, we should go and get ice cream after this!"

The Florida Project, which was also nominated for Best Picture on Thursday, features Brooklynn as Moonee, a girl who lives with her troubled mother in a motel in Florida and follows their struggles to stay together. In accepting Thursday night's award, Prince referenced her role and pleaded for others to help out families in need.

“I would like to dedicate this award to all the Moonees out there,” she said.. “You need to go out there and help. Thank you so much.”

Afterward, the young actress rubbed elbows -- sometimes literally -- with fellow stars like Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig and Angelina Jolie in the audience at the awards show.

She also palled around with past honoree Jacob Tremblay on the red carpet, where the talented young pair posed for some adorable pics.
