I'm Still Crying Over 8-Year-Old "Minari" Star Alan Kim's Critics Choice Awards Speech
"Oh my goodness, I'm crying..."
Alan geared up for the big night with a photo shoot in his tux...
...an at-home red carpet...
...and, of course, some Mountain Dew.
And when the time came to accept his award, Alan delivered one of the sweetest speeches I've ever seen in my life:
I started crying as soon as he started crying while thanking his family, cast, and crew, and then the water works just kept coming.
But I fully lost it when Alan pinched his cheeks, hoping the moment wasn't a dream.
Steven Yeun, who played Alan's dad Jacob in Minari, tweeted his excitement:
And the rest of Twitter couldn't stop talking about the special moment:
Harry Shum Jr. even invented a brilliant new category:
Congrats on your big win, Alan! Can't wait to see you in many more movies to come!
Minari is now in theaters and on-demand.
