He’s only been nominated for an Oscar!

In the live action short category for his directorial debut Pentecost.

The short, according to the LA Times, “tells the story of Damien Lynch, a young altar boy who is offered the chance to serve at an important Mass in his small town, his chance to redeem himself after his last turn as altar boy two weeks before, when he knocked Father O’Toole off the altar.”

It also stars the god-voiced Andrew Bennett:
