Forget Leonardo DiCaprio and his 'will he, won't he' Oscars saga. This year's awards season has been all about Brie Larson, the breakout star who has swept the board in the Best Actress category thanks to her jaw-dropping performance in Room, the film adaptation of Enna Donoghue's 2010 novel. The 26-year-old actress already has a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award to her name, and wins at this month's BAFTAs and Oscars ceremonies seem like a foregone conclusion.

But while you'd be forgiven for thinking that such a universally lauded young actress would take herself a little, well, seriously, you'd be oh so wrong, as a scroll through Brie's Instagram account soon reveals. Instead, she's all about '00s fashion fails, purposefully awkward posing and accidental #squadgoals. Here's why you need to add this season's golden girl to your feed now...

She's the queen of #ThrowbackThursday

Brie's been acting since she was 10, so her tween red carpet appearances make for prime #tbt fodder. We had a fringe like this, too...

She's a fan girl and she doesn't care

Brie is clearly loving life on the red carpet circuit and isn't bothered about playing it cool. If we met Leo, we'd grin and use the shocked cat emoji, too.

She posts the cutest snaps with her co-star, Jacob Tremblay

Brie and Jacob play mother and son in Room, and to paraphrase the great Chandler Bing, could these two BE any more adorable? Jacob's Instagram game is pretty strong, too - he even managed to bag a selfie with man of the moment Leonardo DiCaprio at the SAG Awards last month.

She casually hangs out with Hollywood royalty

Brie chilling out with fellow newbie Saoirse Ronan and all round legend Helen Mirren is 'squad goals' in its truest form. Oh, and she also eats burgers with Denzel Washington.

Her poses are flawless

With a repertoire of dramatic gestures like this, a career in musical theatre could be an option.

She takes herself refreshingly un-seriously

It takes a brave A-lister to deliberately draw attention to an off-guard paparazzi shot rather than posting another heavily filtered selfie. Brie's unimpressed airport face is all of us on a Monday morning.

Her awards season fashion choices are perfect...

Brie hasn't just cleaned up when it comes to awards - she's also been one of the best dressed actresses on the red carpet. We loved her Céline ensemble, her shimmering Golden Globes dress and the colour-block Calvin Klein number below.

But we love her retro style, too

From the iron-on patches to the wrist-warmers, everything about this post is sheer noughties perfection.
