Goal achieved. Mere hours after declaring he wanted to meet up with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jacob Tremblay did just that.

The Room actor, who was nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a supporting role on Saturday night, posed for a sweet picture with The Revenant star.

“This just happened,” the 9-year-old’s Instagram read. “I finally met #leonardodicaprio #sagawards.”

Later, at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Gala hosted by PEOPLE and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, he told PEOPLE it was the highlight of his night: “I said hello to Leonardo DiCaprio and that was awesome.”

Earlier in the night, on the red carpet, Tremblay told PEOPLE he was hoping to run into DiCaprio.

“There’s gonna be Leonardo DiCaprio here. There could be tons of people here,” Temblay said, later adding, “I’m excited to meet him.”

Tremblay, who also presented with his costar Brie Larson, already has a pretty impressive clique, which includes his “best friend” Johnny Depp.
