Katharine Hepburn
Following Sunday's Oscars, which was one of the highest rated shows in recent memory, we had a few suggestions on how things could be improved next year. And one of those ideas was killing the montages or basically anything extraneous that doesn't have any bearing on the matter at hand—handing out awards. And we doubt that will happen if only because the Oscar show is built on pageantry, celebration of its own achievements and more, and that was the case even way back in the day when Bob Hope was hosting.

12 Years A Slave
Last night, if you hadn't fall asleep by time it was announced, you may have noticed a slight chill when screenwriter John Ridley went up to accept his Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for "12 Years A Slave." He curiously didn't even acknowledge director Steve McQueen, walking by him on his way up to the stage, and in his speech, he thanked everyone involved with the movie except the director. Is that beef we're smelling?

Lupita Nyong'o, Oscars
For anyone watching the Oscars at home last night, they may have noticed something a different about the speeches this year....no one really got played off. It looks like the producers took it easy on the winners in 2014, rarely breaking out the orchestra to hustle people off the stage, leading to some longer than usual acceptance speeches. And in case you were in the bathroom or doing a snack refill, we've got all the major ones below.

If the Oscars ditched the usual razzle dazzle opening number this number, they still brought the music with Best Song nominees getting their chance to shine with live performances. But it wasn't always the songs that got the most attention.

Ellen DeGeneres
After Seth MacFarlane stunk up the joint with his frat boy antics during last year's Oscar show, the Academy course corrected and asked Ellen DeGeneres back to the stage (she hosted in 2007) and it was good choice. And in case you missed it, we've got the full opening monologue for you to check out.
