The star-studded gala was a cauldron of emotions and had its fair share of best and worst moments.

However, in order to maintain the general positivity this year’s Oscars have brought for Pakistanis, we have shortlisted six jovial quotes by winners from the six most prominent categories of the night.

It’s funny because in 1929 the first Oscar ceremony’s tickets cost $5 and lasted 15 minutes. Times have changed – Jean Dujardin

When they called my name, I had this feeling that I could feel half of America going, ‘Oh no, not her again. But you know, whatever – Meryl Streep

I want to say hi to my kids. I want to say to my wife that you inspired the movie, you’re the soul of the movie and you’re the positive feeling of the movie – Thomas Langmann

I am the happiest director in the world right now – Michel Hazanavicius

Thank you Academy, for putting me with the hottest guy in the room – Octavia Spencer

[Oscar] You’re only two years older than me darling, where have you been all of my life? – Christopher Plummer
