Louis C.K. Presents the Documentary Shorts Category, Accidentally Proves He’d Be a Solid Oscars Host

By

The Oscars' Documentary Short category normally comes with a brief sermon about why you should care about these films. This year, Louis C.K. found a way around that, riffing on the passion of the producers and directors, who do what everyone else in the audience does, except without all the fame and money. “This Oscar is going home in a Honda Civic,” C.K. joked, with all the ease of a great Oscars host. Sure, Louie's probably happy to make his dark little web series, but the Academy has its eyes on him now.
