Reason 100 why we love Jacob Tremblay: The kid can dance.

After taking home the best young actor/actress trophy at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday, nine-year-old Tremblay celebrated his successful night with some seriously impressive dance moves.

The Room star shared an Instagram video of himself busting a move to the tune of Bruno Mars‘ hit song “Uptown Funk” – complete with spins, pointing and even some air guitar.

In the clip, Tremblay steals the show in the center of the dance floor as a crowd circles around him.

“Celebrating the #criticschoiceawards to my favorite jam!!” he wrote.

While Tremblay’s dance moves certainly made him the center of attention at the afterparty, his real shining moment came when he delivered the cutest acceptance speech earlier in the evening.

The pint-sized actor had to stand on his tippy toes in order to be able to talk into the microphone.

“Woah. This is super cool, this is the best day of my life!” he gushed. “I first want to say thank you to all the critics who voted for me, it must be a super hard vote because of all of the other great actors in this category.”

The young actor also made a point to thank everyone who worked with him on Room.

“I think that us working together made this movie come true and this award doesn’t just go to me for that it goes to all of you guys as well,” he said. “I also want to thank my parents and I love them very much.”
