Aubrey Plaza hosted the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles today, taking over from fellow comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney who did a bang-up job of opening the show over the last two years.
Plaza quickly put here own weird stamp on the evening, opening things up with a pre-taped bit in which she and a coven of iconic witches including Christina Ricci Marisa Tomei Marcia Gay Harden and Sharon Stone gathered to sacrifice a virgin.
The virgin in question? That would be Finn Wolfhard adorable child star Stranger Things . Things get pretty much the end of this, but we wouldn't have it any other way. See the monologue and a list of Independent Spirit Award winners.
