Her night It was Brooklynn Prince's night at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday as she took home the Best Young Performer

Taking the stage to accept the award for Best Young Performer for her role in The Florid Project, her tearful speech and suggestion that everyone get ice cream afterwards won the hearts of everyone on Twitter, who just couldn't hold back their own tears as they watched the pint-sized actress.

And while her speech alone was enough to make headlines, one actress seemingly also made Prince's big night: Angelina Jolie.

One person blamed their tears on "allergies".

If you've yet to see The Florida Project all you have to know is that 7-year-old Brooklynn Prince is the star of the show. "All the nominees are great - we should go and get ice cream afterward", causing laughter. Prince began her acceptance speech. "God, I would like to thank you for this wonderful opportunity, and I would like to thank [director] Sean [Baker] for giving me this wonderful opportunity to be his Moonee".

"I would like to dedicate this award to all the Moonees out there", she added.

And then, after one big sniffle, her voice jumped in pitch for an almost-squeaky delivery of her last words on stage: "Thank you so much!"

In "The Florida Project", Prince plays Moonee who lives in a week-to-week budget motel called The Magic Castle and managed by Bobby (Willem Dafoe), who in turn protects the children living in his establishment.
