Matheny looked as shocked as anyone as he took the stage, voicing what everyone else was thinking.

"I should've got a haircut," he joked.

The Oscar audience laughed along with Matheny who went on to win them over with a heartfelt speech where he went on to thank his mother, who provided craft services for the cast and crew. He also thanked "the love of my life," who scored the film.

The 83rd Academy Awards started at 5 PM local time at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The show was hosted by actors Anne Hathaway and James Franco, who was nominated for an award for Best Actor.
