Forget Best Picture or Best Director, the boys from Jojo Rabbit just won the Cutest Red Carpet Duo award. Roman Griffin Davis and Archie Yates from Taika Waititi’s acclaimed film stole the show by having the most fun out of anyone on Sunday’s Oscars red carpet.

While many seasoned awards show-goers might be over the predictable questions and cheesing for the camera at this point, the two young stars were all in. They jumped, joked, and laughed the whole way down the carpet.

At one point, when an interviewer told the two to enjoy their night, Yates cheekily replied, “Let’s die of sleep loss!”

The internet loved the pair’s enthusiasm, with one fan tweeting, “Petition to have these two host The #Oscars next year!”

Another reporter wrote, “The Jojo Rabbit kids are making the red carpet for me.”

Directed by Waititi, Jojo Rabbit stars Davis as Jojo, a lonely boy who possesses Nazi sensibilities (and affinity for Hitler, whom Waititi portrays as the boy’s spirited imaginary friend), with Yates playing his best friend Yorki. However, his intolerance wears down after he bonds with a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has hidden inside the walls of their German home during World War II.

The film is up for six Oscars tonight, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress for Johansson, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Waititi.

Taika Watiti takes a big, wild swing with 'Jojo Rabbit' — an audacious slice of Third Reich whimsy that almost definitely shouldn’t work as well as it does.
