‘This is super cool,’ Jacob said as he held onto his award and stepped onto a box so he could speak into the microphone.
‘It’s the best day of my life,’ he added. ‘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.’
He also thanked the cast and crew, noting: ‘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 concluded by saying: ‘I just want to thank my parents. I love them very much.’
