It’s a “short” but sweet win for The Phone Call.

The movie, directed by Mat Kirkby, was awarded the 2015 Oscar for Best Short Film, Live Action on Sunday night.

The short film was written by Kirkby and James Lucas and follows Heather, a shy woman who works in a call center.

Kirkby and Lucas took the stage to receive the award from Kerry Washington and Jason Bateman.

Kirkby in particular was excited by the victory because he said it would get him a free doughnut from his local bakery.

Other contenders in the Best Live Action Short Film category included Aya, Boogaloo and Graham, Butter Lamp (La Lampe au Beurre de Yak) and Parvaneh.

The 2015 Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris from the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, are airing live on ABC.
