Jacob Tremblay, a 9-year-old Canadian actor who appears in the movie “Room” is an adorable kid, and he is quite aware of this fact.
He may not have gotten an Oscar nomination for his role in Room but he has certainly won the hearts of many. He has shared the photo of his family on their way to the Academy Awards ceremony.
He got too excited when Star Wars droids took the stage and showed off his socks on the carpet. But he was a pleasant distraction.
Tremblay is a self-proclaimed “Star Wars Fanatic,” according to E Online.
Room is a 2015 Canadian-British-Irish drama film directed by Lenny Abrahamson. It is about a young mother and her 5-year-old son(Tremblay) imprisoned in a shed.
Tremblay began acting at the age of five and made his film debut as Blue Winslow in “The Smurfs 2.”
Surprisingly, The Telegraph argues about Oscar voter’s hatred for child actors: “One name has been largely absent from Room’s avalanche of awards – and if you’ve seen the film, you’re probably wondering if some kind of conspiracy is afoot. Jacob Tremblay is the 9-year-old actor who plays Jack, Larson’s character’s son, and he’s been singled out for special praise in every review of the film that I’ve read. (My colleague Tim Robey said he “could hardly be much better in the part than he is”, and I wholeheartedly agree.)
Yet the Oscars, Baftas and Golden Globes have ignored him completely. (He’ll be appearing at the Academy Awards later this month, but as a presenter.) He won the Critics’ Choice Award for best young actor or actress. He was nominated for a Screen Actors’ Guild award in the supporting actor category.
