Brooklynn was the belle of the ball as she walked down the red carpet in the bright red dress that had sequined straps.

And she melted hearts as she stopped to pose with fellow nominee Jacob Tremblay who was nominated for Wonder.

At just 11, the young actor is a veteran of the red carpet - having previously won the same award in 2016 for Room.

Brooklynn couldn't contain her emotions as she was called to the stage to accept her statue.

She was helped up the stairs by her father as the presenters guided her to the microphone to give her speech.

'All the nominees are great and we should all go out and get ice cream after this,' Brooklynn joked through her tears.

She then gave thanks to all those that made her win possible.

'All my voters... you guys are so awesome, thank you so much. God, I would like to thank you for this opportunity.

'And I would like to thank the cast and crew for the wonderful support and to my family and my team,' she continued.

Then she added a call to arms to help struggling single mothers and their children as The Florida Project told the story of Halley (Bria Vinai) trying to make ends meet to support her daughter Moonee (Brooklynn).

'To all the Halley and Moonee's out there... Guys, this is a real problem you need to go out and help,' she pleaded.

The crystal star-shaped statue looked gigantic in the hands of the child as she hoisted her first acting award in the air. 

After accepting the award, Brooklynn made her rounds to the the bevy of celebrity-stacked tables and stopped to chat with Angelina Jolie.

She smiled and laughed with the Oscar winner, herself a mother-of-six, who appeared delighted to meet the young star.

They gave each other a huge hug and posed for a photograph together. 

Afterwards, Brooklynn got to meet Irish-American actress Saoirse Ronan as they posed together as well.

Prince first started out acting when she was two years old. She landed her first job for Parenting Magazine where she was enlisted for a modelling shoot, before going on to bag a role in a commercial for Chuck E. Cheese.

Brooklynn has found herself catapulted into the spotlight, thanks to her efforts in Sean Baker's new movie The Florida Project which tells the story of a group of misfit kids living in a low-cost motel just a stone's throw away from Disney World.

The starlet takes on the leading role of six-year-old Moonee, a young girl living with her mother who 'courts mischief and adventure' with her friends. She features in almost every scene in the film and became known on set for avidly eating in scenes and her witty improvisation.

Given free rein in some of her scenes, Prince revealed in an interview with Vulture that she was allowed to 'say what she wanted' on camera and was only given a handful of scripted lines at a time.

Too cute: The seven-year-old actress was adorable in a bedazzled red dress at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on Thursday

And her endearing spirit shone through as she recalled eating '45 ice cream cones' in one scene, as she thought to make the most of the sweet treat on being told it would be taken away from her once the scene had wrapped.   

Brooklynn has been heavily tipped to win at Oscar, thanks to a particularly convincing upset at the end of The Florida Project.

In a particularly emotional scene in the movie, Baker recalled how the little girl immersed herself in her character and gave a stellar performance while sobbing her heart out.

The film producer recalled: 'I knew at that moment she was really gonna try, but then when we rolled the camera and she started crying… we were behind the camera just in awe.

'As soon as she wrapped that scene up I was desperate to yell cut because I couldn’t watch her any longer crying like this.'

Discussing the prospect of the gong, Brooklynn admitted she would be 'honoured' to receive such an award, and would want to celebrate at home with her family.

She told the Daily Mail of her blossoming career: ‘There’s not a day that goes by where I think, ‘Aaaagh, I’ve got to do press today’ or ‘Oh no, I’m on set’; it’s just the greatest experience.

Buddies: They were too cute as Brooklynn put her arm around Jacob

‘It’s all in God’s hands but if I got an Oscar, I’d be so, so happy. I’d have a big party with all my family and my whole house would be filled with everything to celebrate.

‘Growing up, I have always watched the Oscars and always wondered what the actors felt when they had their name called, or how they feel to win. But I would still be incredibly honoured if I only got a nomination.’ 

Reports have claimed that the new toast of Hollywood is set to join Angelina Jolie in the live action adaptation of The One and Only Ivan.

The movie will follow a silverback gorilla named Ivan who lives alongside an elephant, Stella, and a stray dog in a cage in a shopping mall. He doesn't remember life prior to the mall, but begins to rediscover it when he finds himself taking care of a baby elephant and hatching a plan to escape from captivity.

Meanwhile HBO drama Big Little Lies was the big TV winner of the night with four awards, including best actress, which went to Nicole Kidman.

The series also scooped best limited series, while Kidman's costars Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern took home best supporting actor gongs.

Dominating the movie categories Guillermo del Toro's fantasy flick The Shape of Water won best picture as well as best director.
