While it's hard to argue anyone had a better weekend than Lupita Nyong'o (birthday, No. 1 movie at the box office, Oscar, Spirit Award, getting in on the world’s most famous selfie along with your brother), it seems unlikely anyone had more fun on Oscar night than Bill Murray.
He started off with a tribute to his friend Harold Ramis, ad-libbed during Murray's presentation of the Best Cinematography award alongside Amy Adams.
Ramis, who passed away last month, worked with Murray on some of the best comedies in American film history. After the official nominees were announced, Murray added: "Oh, and we forgot one: Harold Ramis, for 'Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' and 'Groundhog Day.'"
Bill Murray shouts out Harold Ramis. Awesome. https://t.co/bb03lirVNf

After giving your acceptance speech and leaving the stage, Academy Award winners are funneled into a room where they get peppered with questions from journalists (and “journalists”) from all over the world. These exchanges can be awkward or entertaining, but you’ll find few as charming and laugh-out-loud funny as Jennifer Lawrence’s. Here’s a running diary highlighting some her finest moments after winning Best Actress for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook.”
:03: “This isn’t like an auction, right? You guys are going to take it away.” You just received the highest possible honor in your field and overcame a traitorous dress that tripped you on international television. Now you walk into a room where a bunch of people are in fancy attire and someone with a microphone is shouting out numbers, not unlike an auctioneer. It’s not that crazy to assume there’s one final challenge before the golden statuette is yours forever.
