UPDATE: Due to Academy copyright issues, the videos we'd rounded up earlier of acceptance speeches were taken down from YouTube. Instead, watch the AP's highlights compilation from the show, plus "The 86th Academy Awards in Under Two Minutes" below.

EARLIER: We've rounded up video highlights (and some lowlights -- John Travolta didn't exactly nail Idina Menzel's name) from the 2014 Oscars. Included are host Ellen DeGeneres' opening monologue, as well as memorable moments like Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong'o moving, tearful acceptance speech, the "12 Years a Slave" Best Picture win (including Steve McQueen's endearing jump for joy at the end), Matthew McConaughey's win for Best Actor (wherein he talked about the importance of something to look up to, something to look forward to, and someone to chase) and much more. Watch below.

Best line went to the great Cate Blanchett, re: the success of films with women at the center: "The world is round, people!"

Meanwhile, early ratings numbers are in. And people love Ellen! The Oscars' ratings last night were the highest they've been since 2005. The ABC telecast scored a 27.9 rating, which is up slightly from last year.
