If you caught last night’s pizza party Academy Awards, then you probably found yourself applauding — maybe even tearing up — during the live show. Sure, there was a lot to laugh about (Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter selfie was basically the most amazing thing we’ve ever seen, with her impromptu pizza delivery service coming in as a close second), but the acceptance speeches took the cake. They were emotional and honest, and we just loved them.

So whether you missed the Oscars completely (how could you?! JK) or just want to relive some of the best moments again, we rounded up our five favorite quotes from the night. Check ‘em out below:

“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight, in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we’re thinking of you tonight.”
- Jared Leto

“No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid.”
- Lupita Nyong’o

“This year I actually did a stair test.”
- Jennifer Lawrence

“There are three things, to my account, that I need each day. One of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward to, and another is someone to chase.”
- Matthew McConaughey

“And perhaps to 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.”
- Cate Blanchett

+ Watch Lupita Nyong’o’s acceptance speech because it’s really that great:
