The 7-year-old Brooklynn Prince has stolen our hearts with her sweet and emotional acceptance speech at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday night.
As the cute star, after hugging her parents took the stage and accepted the Best Young Performer Award for her role in ‘The Florida Project’, has cried the tears of joy. The young little star even got to meet her idol Angelina Jolie, whom she was instantly charmed. Having tears in the eyes, she has made her way to the stage, accepted the award and began her acceptance speech by saying, “This is such a big honor, all the nominees are great.” She says they should go and get ice cream after this as they are way awesome.
She thanked the God for giving her ‘wonderful’ opportunity as well his director, Sean for giving her this opportunity to be his Moonee. She then thanked her family as well as her ‘team’ which has inspired an affectionate laugh from the audience at Barker Hangar, Santa Monica. On behalf of her impoverished families like the ones at the center of Baker’s film, she made a plea by saying that she would like to dedicate this award to all the Moonees out there. She said, “Guys, this is a real problem. You need to go out there and help. Thank you so much.”
After that, Brooklynn got to meet Saoirse Ronan, the Irish-American actress and posed together. Brooklynn has started her acting career at the age of 2 when she has landed her first job for Parenting Magazine where she was enlisted for a modeling shoot before her role in a commercial for Chuck E. Cheese. ‘The Florida Project’ was Baker’s directorial follow-up to his hit film ‘Tangerine’ in 2015 and follows the story of a poverty-stricken girl (Brooklynn) living in an Orlando motel along with her destitute mother (Bria Vinaite).
