Jacob Tremblay knows you think his dad is hot -- but the spotlight's still all his

Jacob Tremblay knows you think his dad is hot, but he's not too worried about sharing the spotlight after his pop's good looks sent the internet into a frenzy at the Golden Globes last week.

"It's good. It's cool, it's cool. Yeah, [my dad] like looked on[line] like 'Ooh, look. Look who's the good guy in town now!'" the nine-year-old "Room" star told etalk's Jessi Cruickshank at the Critics' Choice Awards in Santa Monica Sunday night.

"He tries to stay off camera now so that he doesn't get all the attention," Jacob added.

There was no risk of dad hogging the attention Sunday night, as Jacob picked up the Best Young Actor award.

"This is the best day of my life!" the Vancouver native exclaimed as he took the stage.

He went on to thank the critics, Team "Room," including costar Brie Larson, and his parents.

"I love them very much," he told the crowd, before adding "I know where to put this [trophy]. Right on the shelf right beside my Millennium Falcon."

Naturally, the crowd couldn't get enough Jacob. Just ask "Jane the Virgin" stars Gina Rodriguez and Yael Grobglas, and "Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross... 

And by the looks of this video at the show's after party, the best day of Jacob's life continued into the night!

Celebrating the #criticschoiceawards to my favorite jam!! Thank-you!!! #roomthemovie
