Jacob Tremblay may be only 10 years old, but he’s already won a Critics’ Choice Award for his on-screen work — and is reminding people of just how successful he is.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday’s Billy on the Street, Tremblay joins host Billy Eichner on a mission to remind passersby of the youngster’s bona fides.

The first person that the pair comes across isn’t even aware of who Tremblay is — big mistake.

“Sir, this is Jacob Tremblay,” Eichner says as he introduces the two. “You know he has a Critics’ Choice Award.”

“Wow, congratulations,” Anthony says to a thankful Tremblay. “For what?” Anthony asks.

Room!” Tremblay sweetly replies.

“Which movie?” Anthony further questions.

Room, with Brie Larson!” Eichner, 38, explains of Tremblay, who earned a Critics’ Choice Award for his breakout role.

“Oh, I haven’t seen that,” says Anthony, a self-professed documentary fan.

At the end of the duo’s stroll — after encountering numerous adult folk who witnessed the young actor’s work in Room — Eichner points out another young boy on the corner to Tremblay.

“Jacob, there’s another child,” Eichner says to a giggling Tremblay. “Jacob, there’s another child. But he doesn’t have another Critics’ Choice Award.”

Tremblay’s response: “Doesn’t mean he’s not cool!”
