From Chris Rock's opening monologue to Leonardo DiCaprio's passionate speech, a roundup of the best quotes of the night.
The 88th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by comedian Chris Rock, drew further attention to the lack of diversity in this year's awards season.
Among the stream of controversial jokes in his opening monologue, Rock and other presenters continued to touch upon this #OscarsSoWhite controversy throughout the entire show. Other winners used their acceptance speeches to emphasize the importance of their craft. Here are some of the most memorable lines from the evening:
“In the '60s, black people did not protest. Why? Because we had real things to protest at the time." — Rock
“It’s not about boycotting or anything, we want opportunity. We want black actors to get the same opportunities.” — Rock
“My mom and dad thank you for giving me the belief that anything can happen even though I would have never believed this.” — Alicia Vikandar, best supporting actress winner for The Danish Girl
“There are days you’re going to feel sad, you’re going to feel angry, you’re going to feel scared, that’s nothing you can choose. But you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It’ll make a world of difference. ” — Pete Docter, best animation winner for Inside Out“有时候你会悲伤、会生气、会害怕，这一切你们无从选择。但你可以有所为。去制作电影，去画，去写，会影响这个世界。”—彼特·道格特，凭《头脑特工队》获最佳动画长片
“So what a great opportunity to our generation,to really liberate ourselves from all prejudice and this tribal thinking, and make sure for once and forever that the color of skin become as irrelevant as the length of our hair. This is for my father, thank you very much!” — Alejandro G. I?árritu, best director winner for The Revenant—"这对我们这一代而言是多好的机会，可以真正让我们从偏见和部落思维中解放-出来，从自此以后保证肤色，就如同头发长短一般无关紧要。以此献给我的父亲，谢谢你。"—亚利桑德罗-冈萨雷斯·伊纳里图，凭《荒野猎人》获最佳导演
“The thing that I love about moviemaking is how many people it takes to make one.” — Brie Larson, best actress winner for Room
“This film gave a voice to survivors, and this Oscar amplifies that voice.” - Michael Sugar, best picture winner for Spotlight
“Let’s change the culture. We must and we can change the culture. So that no abused woman or man, like the survivors you will see tonight, ever feel they have to ask themselves ‘What did I do?’ They did nothing wrong.” — Vice President Joe Biden, introducing performer Lady Gaga
