As the Lion co-stars, Dev Patel and Sunny Pawar walked on the 74th Golden Globes stage to introduce their film, nominated for four awards, the audience gave them a very warm welcome.

The eight-year-old actor had a wide smile throughout and it became even bigger when Dev lifted him up, so that he could reach the mike and introduce his film, saying, "This is our movie, Lion."
