We’re all winners after last night’s Oscars, and we have Ellen DeGeneres to thank for that!
The comedian killed it as a second-time host, eliciting laughs from even the most serious celebs. If you missed the ceremony or simply want to relive the night’s best moments, take a look at a few of Ellen’s funniest one-liners!
“I’m telling everyone that you were wonderful in Nebraska. WONDERFUL.” — Ellen mocking June Squibb’s age, the night’s oldest nominee at 84.
“Meryl has been nominated for an Oscar a total of 18 times. It sounds good, but if you do the math, between dresses, hair and makeup, that’s hundred of thousands of dollars. Simply put, Meryl cannot afford to be nominated again.” — to Meryl Streep
“If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar.” — to Jennifer Lawrence, referencing her famous fall up the stairs at last year’s awards

“One of the best Liza impersonators I’ve ever seen in my life. Good job, sir.” — to Liza Minnelli
“It’s been a rough couple of days for us. It’s been raining. We’re fine, thank you for your prayers.”
“I’m not going to say who’s the prettiest tonight, but it’s Jared Leto.”
“It deals with the serious issue of people having sex at the rodeo . . . speaking of, Bruce Dern is here tonight.” — on Dallas Buyers Club
“I am happy to be back. I hosted seven years ago…Things are so different now. Last time when I was here, Cate Blanchett was nominated. Meryl Streep was nominated. Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated. Martin Scorsese was nominated. So different!” — referring to her last time as Oscar host in 2007.
“We know that the most important thing in the world is love and friendship and family, and if people don’t have those things, well then, they usually get into show business.”
“I did a little bit of research and between all the nominees here tonight, you’ve made 1,400 films. And you’ve gone to a total of six years of college. I’m kidding. Kids, stay in school. Amy Adams, you went to college, right?” (Adams shakes her head no)
“I have this crazy idea that I will order pizza…two large, what’d you think?”

“Where’s Harvey Weinstein? Harvey? No pressure, only a billion people watching. Whatever you think is right.” — asking the producer for money to tip the pizza guy
“So this is true. We crashed Twitter. We just got an email, and we crashed and broke Twitter … See, Meryl, what we did, you and I?” — referencing the “selfie” she took during the show which included some huge A-list stars
