Louis C.K. On The Best Documentary Short Subject Category
Louis C.K. gave a humorous introduction for Best Documentary Short Subject category, saying that it’s really the best award of the night because the people making it are not getting rich on it. The cool thing is the winner — A Girl In The River — is a short that made a difference.

VP Joe Biden Introduces Lady Gaga’s Performance
The Veep got a standing ovation just for being there, and he introduced an emotional performance by Lady Gaga for her song “Till It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground, a documentary about rape on college campuses in the United States. The song didn’t win for Best Original Song though – that went to Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall” from the James Bond film Spectre.
This was the most talked about award of the season — Would Leo FINALLY get his Oscar after so many nominations? He was up against a lot of great performances this year, but this time around, after 6 times, it was all for him. Good for you, Leo!!!
AND, he used his speech time to say CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL!!!!
Umm, say what? Did anyone see this coming? Nope, no one. Not one person. Chalk it up to the shocker of the night. I’m just glad it was this and not a loss for Leo because I don’t think I could have handled anymore Sad Leo Oscar memes.
