Newcomer Jude Hill has won Best Young Actor at the Critic Choice Awards for his role in Kenneth Branagh's semi-autobiographical family drama Belfast.
The 11-year-old Northern Irish star appeared shocked on stage while accepting the award, saying: "I'm gonna be completely honest, I have nothing prepared.
"I couldn't have done it without the rest of the cast, Jamie [Dornan], Caitriona [Balfe], Ciarán [Hinds], Ken [Branagh], Judi Dench.
"Thanks to my mum and dad for always being there and just letting me go down this path in the first place."
He also singled out Branagh for specific thanks, saying: "I love you so much thank you for choosing me."
The acclaimed film won a total of three awards at Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles which is often seen as a predictor of success at the Oscars.
