It’s Oscars day, baby! And unlike the dumpster fire that was the Golden Globes (ah, memories), the 2021 Academy Awards is actually, mostly in-person. What a concept! The red carpet is underway and the stars are out to play. Enter nine-year-old Minari star Alan S. Kim, who has stolen all of our hearts.

The wee legend has already scooped up a slew of awards, including a Critics Choice Award, for his role as David in the Oscar-nominated film. But while Kim himself isn’t nominated for an Oscar today, he did absolutely bring it on the red carpet.

“It’s time for the Oscars, but first I have to walk Cream,” Kim posted ahead of the red carpet.

Who is Cream, you ask? HIS GORGEOUS DOG.

And now, to the red carpet.

Cool kid on the block, incoming.

Kim rocked the red carpet with Minari producer Christina Oh, and I cannot deal with the way he posed. The kid stole the show, that is all.

Minari is nominated for a number of Oscars, including best actor for my husband Steven Yeun, best actress in a supporting role for Yuh-Jung Youn, best director for Lee Isaac Chung, and best picture (!!!). It’s also nominated for best music (original score) and best writing (original screenplay).

That’s six chances at a tiny gold man, so surely Minari will scoop up at least one of ’em. SURELY.

As an aside, it looked like Kim had a very wholesome ninth birthday if this Insta post is anything to go by.

A star is born.

The 93rd Academy Awards is airing live on Channel 7 and 7plus on Monday, 26 April at 10am, with a prime time encore at 9.30pm. Love a solid encore.
