Chris Rock, the ceremony host then ran onto the stage with two standing blocks, giving Tremblay a much higher one.

Attah then stated, "The nominees this year show that when it comes to making an impact on the big screen, size really doesn't matter."


The pair went on to introduce the nominees — "Ave Maria", "Day One", "Everything Will Be Okay" (Alles Wird Gut), "Shok" and "Stutterer" — and named "Stutterer" as the winner. First-time nominees Benjamin Cleary and Serena Armitage accepted the award.

While neither actor earned an Oscar nomination, each picked up awards during Oscar season: Tremblay, a Critics' Choice award and Attah, an Independent Spirit award.
