>> speeches, all the night's work for oscar nominees, presenters and winners.
>> that's right. and here with memorable moments with the looks that caught everybody's eye. dave carter , and install beauty director colona barfield. good morning.
>> good morning.
>> was it a great oscars , what was it?
>> it worked for me. i know ellen degeneres has gotten mixed reviews, but i love her fun and friendly vibe. a lot of musical performances. not only youtube and pharrell, i thought pink doing that tribute to wizard of oz was really great. it had a lot more life than some oscar shows do. too many montages, though.
>> al had a good point, which was. what about the in memoriam segment, having bette singing it while the going on. one of the few you had during the evening.
>> the only one, actually.
>> what did you think?
>> i thought it was amazing. i had a good time and thought there was so many people who looked gorgeous.
>> who was your favorite?
>> i'm going to say charlize theron .
>> i thought she was gorgeous. wearing an amazing dior dress with an interesting plunging neckline, a train that was --
>> she's so statuesque.
>> i do know one thing, dave carter , this was an oscars where the front runners seemed to prevail.
>> people like me talking about how close a lot of the main races are. and i think they were close. but the people who we thought were going to win, won. jared leto , matthew mcconaughey , lupita. even though she was expected, felt so exciting.
>> it was close between her and jennifer lawrence . and i could tell even jennifer lawrence wanted lupita to win.
>> everyone was trying. there wasn't a dry eye in the room.
>> for me, the only surprise was when best original screen play was for her. which is a very, very original type of movie, something never seen before. but that caused a bit of a stir.
>> well, because it beat " american hustle ," " american hustle " went 0 for 10, one of the biggest shutouts. the turning point in "color purple," only five movies have gotten double digit nominations and lost everything.
>> how about "wolf of wall street ."
>> meanwhile, "gravity," 7 for 10. great night for gravity.
>> everybody, we've all had moments, you're on camera, had these moments. but john travolta 's flub of the name.
>> you said it great. ended up saying adel nazib.
>> let's take a listen here.
>> "frozen," please welcome the wickedly talented one and only --
>> i thought, oh, my gosh, i wonder if she got sick and her understudy had to come on.
>> if you think of it. it's all the letters of her name are in there. it's an anagram. and now there's twitter handles of adel nazim out there. it's genius.
>> here's one of the things i noticed. dave, for example, wearing the blue tuxedo. there were a lot of blue tuxedos on the carpet.
>> there were so many that were amazing. you were right on trend.
>> i thought jared leto looked amazing. he had the white jacket and the red bow tie and, of course, wins the award for best hair.
>> he and matthew said they did not discuss ahead of time, but they looked like they had gotten thrust together.
>> how about pharrell's shorts.
>> you know what -- i honestly love he takes risks for the grammy's, it was the hat, for the oscars , the shorts and came with his wife and they were in matching tuxedos.
>> i think it was because of the torrential rain. everywhere you went were puddles. very smart of him. who was your absolute favorite? for me, i think it was camilla alvez.
>> she was gorgeous. amazing. i have to put lupita in there just because she wears color so wear. and she's so poised and graceful. everything worked.
>> we all agree.
