In an opening monologue in which he slammed the IFC channel and the ending of “Tár,” host Hasan Minhaj reserved his most stinging jokes for an online entertainment industry website. “I can’t wait to hear about all these jokes on Deadline,” Minhaj cracked at the beginning of the 38th Film Independant Spirit Awards.The “Daily Show” comedian continued, “There’s nothing I love more than dog s— clickbait journalism.

I love how you guys make every headline sound like porn.”He asked, “Seriously, how did we let Deadline become the most important website in our industry?

It has the web layout of a Craigslist ad and it governs our lives. They literally ran a story about how Steven Spielberg doesn’t have an idea right now.

You think I’m kidding? ‘Breaking news out of Berlin.’”Minhaj was also in an amusingly sour mood over the decision by longtime Spirit Award broadcaster IFC to give up rights to the program.
