Watch Louis C.K.’s Hilarious Presentation at the Oscars

Comedian and actor Louis C.K. presented the award for documentary short film in hilarious fashion Sunday night at the Oscars.

“This is easily my favorite subject,” he said after walking onstage. “This is the one Academy Award that has the opportunity to change a life. I’m happy for all of you, but you came here winners and you’re leaving millionaires; it’s not going to make that big of a difference… This Oscar is going home in a Honda Civic.”

Upon opening the envelope, the comedian shockingly said, “‘Mad Max?’ No.” before presenting the award to Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for “A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness.”

    I thought he was one of the very best things on that stage. He’s a sharp dude and he would be an interesting host, but he might be a rough one. Still, I’d like to see it, though I doubt he wants to take on something as fruitless as this task usually is.

  2. I’d love to see Louis CK host the Oscars too. He’s got my vote for a lot of things.

  3. Julie says:

    I think Louis CK should host the Oscars. Love him.

  4. Art says:

    I was really disappointed the whole show seem to me that there was a rift on why so many white actors And no black actors were nominated well if they were in a good movie and played a good role they to would be nominated , the Oscars are not biase, so why did Chris rock make it seem that way , we shouldn’t be nominating actors or actresses by There color , but by there performance , sorry but I’ll never watch another Oscars hosted by Chris rock

      Not as disappointed as your parents, Art. I’m sure they would prefer you learn to form a coherent sentence and use proper grammar before posting.

    I think Louis CK was driving a Honda Civic seven years ago.
