Ellen Took Selfies and Bought Pizza for the Audience, Bill Murray Snuck in a Harold Ramis Reference . . . And Other Oscar Moments
Here were some of last night's Oscar highlights:
Before the show even started JENNIFER LAWRENCE had her SECOND OSCAR FALL in a row, when she wiped out on the red carpet. And of course, ELLEN DEGENERES called her out on it in her opening monologue.
As host, Ellen was . . . well . . . Ellen DeGeneres. And that's a good thing. She was funny without going overboard or trying too hard.
She did toss in one reference to her own sexuality, when she slyly brought up JONAH HILL'S nude scene in "The Wolf of Wall Street". She said, quote, "You showed us something in that film that I have not seen for a very, very long time."
She also took a star-studded selfie with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong'o that almost immediately broke the record for most re-Tweets.
By the time the Oscars ended, it had been re-Tweeted over TWO MILLION TIMES, and it actually crashed Twitter for a while.
And she handed out pizza to the stars, and later went around with PHARRELL'S giant hat to collect donations for it. Yes, Pharrell did wear the hat when he performed "Happy" earlier in the show. (Here's a list of celebs who took a slice of pizza.)
JARED LETO's acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor was basically a love letter to his mom. But he also spoke out for the people of Venezuela and the Ukraine, along with the millions who've died of AIDS.
JIM CARREY introduced a montage of classic animated films, and tossed in his old "Dumb & Dumber" quote, "I was WAY off." The sequel comes out in November.
And when BILL MURRAY presented the Cinematography award with AMY ADAMS, he ad-libbed a tribute to HAROLD RAMIS.
After they named all the nominees, he said, quote, "Oh, we forgot one: Harold Ramis for "Caddyshack", "Ghostbusters" and "Groundhog Day".
And MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY dropped an "Alright alright alright" into his Best Actor acceptance speech. That's a callback to "Dazed & Confused".
One of the night's more depressing moments was when 81-year-old actress KIM NOVAK presented an award with MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY.
Her face was a total plastic surgery disaster, and she seemed like she might have been MEDICATED . . . although it could have just been her age.
LUPITA NYONG'O won Best Supporting Actress for "12 Years A Slave". The man who presented her with the award was CHRISTOPH WALTZ . . . who won Best Supporting Actor last year for ANOTHER slavery movie, "Django Unchained".
PINK paid tribute to "The Wizard of Oz" by singing "Over the Rainbow". And somewhat ironically, this was her first TV performance in years where she DIDN'T EVEN LEAVE THE GROUND.
JOHN TRAVOLTA introduced IDINA MENZEL, who sang "Let It Go" from the movie "Frozen". But he completely botched her name, calling her something that sounded like, "Adele Dazeem". (???)
If you're into cult flicks, then this year's In Memoriam segment was for YOU. Tom "Billy Jack" Laughlin, Jim "Black Belt Jones" Kelly, legendary monster maker Ray Harryhausen and Kung-Fu film producer Run Run Shaw all made the montage.
Names that didn't make it included Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Jean Stapleton and Jonathan Winters. Although to be fair, none are particularly well known for movie work. (Check out the full list of dead folk at Oscar.com.)
One last note: It was a particularly "inspired" choice to have RAZZIE winner WILL SMITH present the award for Best Picture.
The Oscar Fashion Rundown: Pharrell's New Goofy Hat . . . Liza Minnelli's Nipples . . . And More
The most-talked about FASHION moments from last night's Academy Awards included PHARRELL'S new hat . . . and LIZA MINNELLI'S nipples.
The Internet went NUTS back in January when Pharrell wore his large, oddly shaped hat to the Grammys. And apparently, Pharrell dug all the attention, because he went back to that well for the Oscars.
He wore a similar hat during his performance. This time, it was black instead of brown. By the way, Pharrell also announced yesterday that the original Grammy hat has been auctioned off on eBay for charity. It raised $44,100.
Speaking of Pharrell, he also wore tuxedo SHORTS on the red carpet.
Liza Minnelli's REVEALING outfit was a blue pantsuit. It hung loosely over her body, except in her CHESTAL REGION, where you could clearly see the outline of her HUGE, 67-year-old nipples. She also had a matching blue streak in her hair.
Host ELLEN DEGENERES made a joke about Liza in her opening monologue . . . but it had nothing to do with her dress. Ellen said, quote, "That is one of the most amazing Liza Minnelli impersonators I've ever seen. Good job, sir."
Liza didn't seem pleased with the joke . . . but apparently, there were no hard feelings . . . because she gleefully posed for a "selfie" with Ellen later in the show.
In other Grammy fashion news:
LUPITA NYONG'O got a lot of love for her blue dress, which had a neckline that nearly plunged down to her WAIST. KATE HUDSON went with a similar neckline, and got similar praise.
There was some rain in Hollywood over the weekend . . . and some of the longer Oscar dresses got wet. Pregnant KERRY WASHINGTON'S gown was one of them.
In addition to Kerry, OLIVIA WILDE and ELSA PATAKY are also with fetus, so naturally they all had bump-friendly dresses.
JARED LETO wore an off-white suit, and let his long hair hang over his shoulders. Some people thought he was rockin' a Jesus-look. And at least one person thought his hair looked like RIHANNA'S from last year.
MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY and RYAN SEACREST also went with the off-white tux look . . . although they didn't have the hair, of course.
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH wore a tux to the Oscars. That isn't notable . . . but him hilariously photo-bombing U2 on the red carpet is.
Some people loved the black lace dress JULIA ROBERTS wore . . . but others weren't fans. LADY GAGA'S dress was also divisive, with its superhero cape-like thing.
ANGELINA JOLIE looked a little like an Oscar statue in a GOOD way . . . and KRISTIN CHENWETH looked a little like an Oscar statue in a BAD way.

"Movie 43" Won Big at the Razzies, Along with Will and Jaden Smith
ADAM SANDLER has been a very popular target of the Razzie Awards. He's been nominated 19 times over the past 17 years . . . and in 2012, his movie "Jack and Jill" swept the winners' list.
Then, he won Worst Actor again last year for "That's My Boy".
But despite two nominations this year for "Grown Ups 2", the Razzies have FINALLY given him a pass . . . and have turned their attention elsewhere.
At this year's ceremony on Saturday, "Movie 43" and "After Earth" each won THREE Razzies . . . while "The Lone Ranger", "A Madea Christmas", and Tyler Perry's "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor" earned one each.
"Temptation's" win was for Worst Supporting Actress KIM KARDASHIAN.
Overall, Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" was nominated for NINE Razzies . . . however, it came away with NOTHING, which makes it the biggest shutout in Razzie history.
