Mad Max, Leonardo Di Caprio and Spotlight might have won big at the Oscars on Sunday, but it was pint-sized Jacob Tremblay who stole the show. 

Here are some of the adorable moments that show just how really cute the nine-year-old Vancouver actor is. 

1. Going to the Oscars with his parents

The Room actor put up this photo of him in the back seat as his parents drove him to the Oscars venue in Los Angeles.

2.  "I can see a lot of legs"

When Ryan Seacrest asked Tremblay for his perspective on the red carpet, he responded without missing a beat: "I can see a lot of legs."

3. Geeking out over Star Wars

​The Canadian actor is a huge Star Wars fan. He embellished his Armani suit with Millennium Falcon cufflinks and Star Wars socks. 

And though he's normally the picture of composure and charm, Tremblay got very excited when BB-8, R2-D2, and C-3PO rolled on stage as part of a tribute to legendary composer John Williams.

And then got his photo with them.

He also took photos with Star Wars' star Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey. 

4. Knowing how to compliment a woman

He's still just a kid, but he knows how to charm women. Here's the compliment for actress Sofia Vergara.

5. Taking selfies with his co-star Brie Larson

6. High-fiving her on her best actress win

8. Telling Chris Rock he loved him in Madagascar

"He was the zebra. He's hilarious."
