Jacob Tremblay: Watch His Reaction to Star Wars Droids at Oscars

by at .

This was easily the night's best moment.

9-year-old Room star Jacob Tremblay is a big Star Wars fan; he even showed off his Darth Vader socks on the red carpet earlier that evening.

So, when droids R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8 appeared on stage during the 88th Annual Academy Awards on February 28th, Tremblay stood up from his second-row seat inside the Dolby Theater to get a better look.

It. Was.  Adorable.

This kid was essentially the show's only highlight (sorry, Girl Scouts), reminding everyone of how endearing childhood curiosity can be.  

When Chris Rock brought out boxes for him and Beasts of No Nation's Abraham Attah to stand on, Tremblay told Rock that he loved him in Madagascar.

"Thanks, Chris! I loved you in Madagascar!” he called out to the host, who exited stage right.

Tremblay was too far from the mic for people to hear, which made it even cuter.

"He was the zebra, he was hilarious!" Tremblay told the audience.

On the red carpet, Ryan Seacrest asked the youth what it was like to be at the Oscars from his perspective (literally).

"I can see lots of legs — that's my perspective, that's what I see," Tremblay answered casually.  "It's pretty exciting because I watch the Oscars every year, and sometimes I root for people.

"Last year I rooted for Eddie Redmayne," he told Seacrest.

This kid.
