Her humorous but adorable remark left the audience cracking in an affectionate laughter. She simply stole the show. Prince went on to thank God and the movie director for the opportunity to star as Moonee in the movie. She went on to thank her family and her “team".

Prince’s appeal for charity.

Prince is no doubt a kid with a large heart. “I would like to dedicate this award to all the ‘Moonees’ out there,” Prince said, referring to impoverished families like the ones at the center of Baker’s film.
