Los Angeles: While everyone is busy congratulating Casey Affleck for his Academy Award win, Hollywood veteran Samuel L Jackson feels the little star from India Sunny Pawar deserved the best actor trophy.
The eight-year-old boy from Mumbai won everyone's heart at the Oscars where he shared an adorable moment with Jackson.
The 68-year-old star took to Instagram to post a photo with Sunny, who essayed the role of young Saroo Brierley in Garth Davis' "Lion".
"This is who should have won Best Actor tonight, Sunny Pawar of Lion! Totally Killed It!" Jackson wrote along side the picture.
Sunny also shared a cute moment with host Jimmy Kimmel when he picked him to recreate the signature anointment movement from "The Lion King".
Kimmel, who had parachuted candies for the Hollywood audience, had them flying down from the ceiling again, especially for Sunny.
The little one dressed in black tuxedo paired with green and yellow sneakers even clicked pictures with best actor nominee Andrew Garfield.
