“Congrats Mom!!!” he wrote on Twitter, along with the hashtag #Oscars.

Lipnicki, 29, of course, is best remembered for playing precocious Ray, the young son of Zellweger’s single mom Dorothy in “Jerry Maguire,” which snagged four Oscar nominations and one supporting actor win for Cuba Gooding Jr. Lipnicki was six years old when “Jerry Maguire” was released.
