Jacob Tremblay's Adorable Oscar Weekend Is About to Melt Your Heart
By Emily Krauser
Jacob Tremblay is quite possibly the cutest kid of all time, and if his Oscar weekend adventures don't make you believe this, well, you may be made of ice. (Which is cool, because Frozen… But we digress.)
Despite his newfound fame, the 9-year-old actor is clearly still a humble kid -- he kicked off Oscar Sunday not in a limo but in a car driven by his unfairly good-looking parents.
Jacob was just lounging in the backseat -- as you do -- as the adorable family made their way to Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre for the 88th Annual Academy Awards. The pint-size Room star captioned the precious pic simply, "In the car! #Oscars."
To complete the cuteness factor, he even stood on a chair to congratulate his on-screen mom, Brie Larson, when she won Best Actress for her incredible turn in Room.
This was clearly a perfect Saturday, and we weren't even the ones who got to hold shiny objects.
We. Just. Can't. Even.
We can't even tell you that was all to Jacob's weekend of awesomeness, because he kicked it off by nearly getting eaten by a dinosaur when he visited Universal Studios Hollywood with another delightful young actor, Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah.
Room is up for a number of accolades at Sunday night's Oscars. Brie is nominated for Best Actress, the film itself is vying for Best Picture, Lenny Abrahamson is competing for Best Director, and writer Emma Donoghue got a nod for Best Adapted Screenplay.
