Host Neil Patrick Harris' opening number, and (unfortunately) his most apt comment of the night: "Tonight, we honor Hollywood's best and whitest."

JK Simmons told us to call our moms after he won for Whiplash.

Even though the Lego number was questionably awesome, we still love Tegan and Sara — so it's all good.

NPH started a new Calvin Klein campaign! (Hopefully this one wasn't photoshopped...)

Patricia Arquette gave a powerful acceptance speech on gender equality.

...during which Meryl Streep and JLo shared a very special moment.

John Legend and Common CRUSHED IT, and then gave moving acceptance speeches.

Chris Pine even shed a perfectly timed tear!

We're happy these two made up, but we also feel bad for Idina Menzel's face.

Then Lady Gaga paid homage to The Sound of Music before giving Julie Andrews an epic hug. 

When Imitation Game screenwriter Graham Moore won, he gave us a small piece of wisdom: "Stay weird. Stay different."

And we all fell in love with Eddie Redmayne (again) when he won for Theory of Everything.

Same goes for Julianne Moore who FINALLY got herself an Oscar.

And at last, congrats to Birdman for scoring the two biggest awards of the night: Best Director and Best Picture!
