Jacob Tremblay had a good weekend.

The 9-year-old star of Room took home the Critics’ Choice Award for best young actor on Sunday, giving the most charming acceptance speech of the night. And after he thanked his parents and the cast and crew of “Team Room,” Tremblay celebrated his big win in the most adorable way possible: dancing to “Uptown Funk.”

In addition to sharing a video of himself rocking out to his “favorite jam,” Tremblay also shared a video of his “favorite celebrity encounter” from the Critics’ Choice Awards: BB-8. Tremblay’s a devout Star Wars fan — in his acceptance speech, he said he plans to put his award next to his Millennium Falcon at home — and he even challenged The Force Awakens star Oscar Isaac to a lightsaber battle after the Golden Globes.
