Harris opened mimicking iconic dances from these movies, then Kendrick came onstage wearing a gold, Cinderella-inspired gown. The two performed a duet for a few seconds before Black screams, "Enough!" the Tenacious D rocker then joined the duo on stage. It was incredible.

Plus, later on in the show, Harris made us laugh yet again as he did a parody of "Birdman," coming on stage in his tighty whities, a.k.a. just his white underwear.

From J.K. Simmons to Patricia Arquette, the speeches were all moving.

Simmons won the first award of the night for Best Supporting Actor, thanking his beautiful wife Michelle Schumacher.

"I am grateful every day for the most remarkable person I know, my wife," Simmons said. "I am grateful for you love, your kindness, your wisdom, your sacrifice, your patience."

Dana Perry spoke about suicide in her speech following her win for Documentary Short Subject.

"I lost my son. He was 15 when he killed himself and since that happened, what I said I think I said something like, we need to talk about suicide out loud to try to work against the stigma and silence around suicide because the best prevention for suicide is awareness and discussion and not trying sweep it under the rug," she said.

Finally, when Graham Moore won for his work on the screenplay for the "The Imitation Game," he gave the world an insight into his inspiration and motivation for the film.

"When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself. I felt weird and different and felt like I didn't belong. Now I'm standing here this is for any kid out there who doesn't feel like they belong, because you do," he said. “Stay weird, stay different.”
