Luke Matheny, "God of Love" short film

The God of Love took home the Oscar for live action short film on Sunday night at the Academy Awards.

And the speech Luke Matheny made was probably the best of the night!

Surprised to win, Matheny walked on stage and the first thing he said was: “I should’ve got a haircut.”

He thanked his mother, “who did craft services for the film.”  Another great line!

And he finished, romantically, by calling out his girlfriend: “Sasha Gordon, you’re my dream come true.”

Matheny is the writer, director, and star of God of Love, an 18-minute short film about a jazz singer who performs amazing dart tricks on stage.

The short film was his student thesis in the graduate film program at New York University.

Did you know “God of Love” was submitted to both the Sundance and Slamdance film festivals, and was rejected by both.

Here’s a trailer to his film:
