Trivia
David O. Russell became the first director in nearly 50 years to helm consecutively-released films (Silver Linings Playbook (2012) and American Hustle (2013)) that were nominated for all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay). Mike Nichols was the last director to achieve this feat with Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and The Graduate (1967). And he's also the first (and as of 2014 only) director to manage to direct all the four acting Oscar nominating categories in two films (again Silver Linings Playbook (2012) and American Hustle (2013)).

Host Ellen DeGeneres decided to see how many re-tweets she could get by posting a "selfie" photograph on Twitter, and included actors Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Liza Minnelli (not pictured), Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Lupita Nyong'o, her brother "Junior", and Angelina Jolie. Indeed, the selfie broke the record for most re-tweeted Tweet with over 1 million shares, and caused Twitter servers to crash for a short period of time (which DeGeneres also acknowledged during the show).

Receiving her 18th acting nomination, Meryl Streep breaks her own record of most nominations received by an actor or actress.

Quotes
Lupita Nyong'o: Yes! Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn't escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's. And so I want to salute the spirit of "Patsey" for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting me in this position; it has been the joy of my life. I'm certain that the dead are standing about you and watching and they are grateful and so am I. Chiwetel, thank you for your fearlessness and how deeply you went into telling Solomon's story. Michael Fassbender, thank you so much; you were my rock. Alfre and Sarah, it was a thrill to work with you. Joe Walker, the invisible performer in the editing room, thank you. Sean Bobbitt, Kalaadevi, Adruitha, Patty Norris, thank you, thank you, thank you. I could not be here without your work. I want to thank my family for your training, and the Yale School of Drama as well for your training. My friends, the Wilsons, this one's for you. My brother Junior, sitting by my side, thank you so much. You are my best friend. And Ben, my other best friend, my chosen family. When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you're from your dreams are valid. Thank you.

Cate Blanchett: Sit down; you're too old to be standing. Thank you, Mr. Day-Lewis. From you it exacerbates this honor to it and it blows it right out of the ballpark. Thank you so much to the Academy. As random and as subjective as this award is, it means a great deal in a year of extraordinary - yet again - extraordinary performances by women. Amy Adams, everything you do, but your performance in "American Hustle" blew my mind. And Meryl, what can I say? Sandra, I could watch that performance to the end of time, and I sort of felt like I had. Julia, #suckit. You know what I mean? And Judi Dench, I mean what a career. She's not here tonight because at the age of 79 her film was so successful that she's in India doing a sequel. I mean what a career that is, if I could hope. And me, I'm here accepting an award in an extraordinary screenplay by Woody Allen. Thank you so much, Woody, for casting me. I truly appreciate it. I'm so very proud that "Blue Jasmine" stayed in the cinemas for as long as it did. And thank you to Sony Classics, to Michael and Tom, for their extraordinary support, for so bravely and intelligently distributing the film. And to the audiences who went to see it, and perhaps those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences. They are not. Audiences want to see them and, in fact, they earn money. So... The world is round, people! Thank you to my mum, to my sister, to my brother, to my three glorious sons; I would not be standing here without you. To my husband Andrew, you are a legend. Thank you to my agent Hylda Queally; you're behind the pillar somewhere up there. You are a goddess. To my agent in Australia, Robyn Gardiner, I love you so very much. To my publicist Lisa Kasteler. To the sublime Sally Hawkins and to the extraordinary cast of "Blue Jasmine," I don't know how to do this without other actors and this I share with you. To the hair and makeup people who sweated me up and tried to make me look attractive, thank you for the attempt. To Carla Meyer, for getting Sally and I together and for incredible support. To Helen Robin. To everyone involved in "Blue Jasmine," I thank you so much. And finally, I would like to thank every single member of the Sydney Theatre Company, one of the great theater companies in the world. For me working on "Blue Jasmine," it was a real synthesis of my work in the theater and on film. And not only working with you for the last six years has been the most enormous privilege of my career, but it's made me a better actress. There is so much talent in Australia, and Michael Wilkinson and CM and I are just tonight's tip of the iceberg. Thank you so much. Thank you.
