Tonight at the 83rd Academy Awards® Show Luke Matheny has just won an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film for God of Love.
In God of Love, a nightclub singer stars in a show that combines his gifted vocal abilities with his gift of dart throwing. The love of his life is his drummer, but she is in love with the bass player. Suddenly, a gift of special darts arrive for this singer and he learns that someone pricked by one of these special darts will make them fall in love. The darts work well for everyone but our gifted singer and soon he finds that his future profession does not involve singing at all, for he is the new cupid – The God of Love.
