Tiffany Haddish: On her Oscar gown inspired by her late father: "My father passed away this year and he's from Eritrea." She recalled her father telling her, "'One day you're going to end up at the Oscars and when you go, you have to honor your people.' So I'm wearing an Eritrean, authentic princess dress. And I'm proud of it."

Jimmy Kimmel: “I remember a time when the major studios didn't believe a woman or a minority could open a superhero movie - and the reason I remember that time is because it was March of last year.”

Allison Janney (On her best friends surprising her before the Academy Award nominations were announced last month):  "I could not have been happier, I've never been…I'm not someone who's easy to surprise, I've never been surprised and that morning at 5 a.m. friends flew in from New York and Washington, D.C., busted through my bedroom and jumped on my bed…I thought I was gonna be abducted, I didn't know what was happening. It was just the best morning."

Rachel Shenton: “I made a promise to our six-year-old lead actress that I’d sign this speech. My hands are shaking so I apologise. Our movie is about a deaf child being born into a world of silence. This is happening, millions of children all over the world live in silence.”

Jimmy Kimmel: “This year, when you hear your name called, don't get up right away. Give us a minute.”
