Independent Spirit Awards: Patton Oswalt's Best Jokes
Patton Oswalt took aim at the film industry, Hollywood stars, and even his own anatomy as part of his hosting duties at Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards.
The comedian -- known for showing off his comedy chops on Twitter -- had plenty to say during his hosting gig. Below find some of his best jokes, with The Hollywood Reporter updating as the ceremony goes on.
He also tackled the headline-making events involving Woody Allen, Mia Farrow and allegations from Dylan Farrow that the director sexually assaulted her as a child: "The Someone to Watch Award will be presented by Mia Farrow."
Oswalt also joked about Bruce Dern's age, saying of the Nebraska star and 50-year Hollywood vet: "Dern came to the Spirit Awards … for one last look at the beach." Dern responded by pulling out his hearing aid and showing it to the crowd. Oswalt added: "I really want to buy you a drink after this and talk about how Nebraska came together … not the movie, the state."
The comedian joked that Robert Redford's sea-based drama All Is Lost was "Life of Pi without the tiger budget."
Later, Andy Samberg and Bill Hader sent an envelope by drone to present the best supporting actress honor to Lupita Nyong'o. Oswalt returned to the stage afterward in a torn shirt: "This is not from the drone -- Bruce Dern just kicked the shit out of me backstage. But don't touch the drone."
