A little known 9-year-old actor managed to upstage some of Hollywood's biggest stars at this year's Critics Choice Awards in America.

Jacob Tremblay stole the show with his acceptance speech for Best Young Actor for his role in the Irish co-production "ROOM".

His co-star Brie Larson also won the Best Actress prize at the ceremony, broadcast on A&E Networks.

This comes after the film got several nominations at the 2016 Academy Awards, announced last week.

While Leonardo DiCaprio got Best Actor for 'The Revenant', and 'Spotlight' was named Best Film.
