The best gag at the Oscars was definitely the jet ski  3/5/2018 4:57:51 AM   Kellen Beck

And the award (and jet ski) for the shortest speech at the Oscars goes to... The costume designer from Phantom Thread!

Mark Bridges won an Oscar for Costume Design at the Academy Awards Sunday night and gave a speech that came in at just 36 seconds, earning him a jet ski and a free stay at the Days Inn in beautiful Lake Havasu in Arizona.

In his opening monologue, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel tempted nominees to keep their speeches short by promising to give them a jet ski, which legendary actress Helen Mirren showed off in perfect fashion.

Kimmel noted that Mirren did not come with the jet ski, unfortunately.

A little bit later in the evening, Kimmel sweetened the deal to all the nominees in attendance by offering up a free stay at a Days Inn in Lake Havasu. 

At the end of the awards, Bridges came out with a life vest on top of his brand new jet ski alongside Mirren. 

It pays to keep it brief, people.
