The 2015 Academy Awards presentation show went on for a long, long time, so there was plenty of room for memorable moments, from host Neil Patrick Harris’ stroll across the stage in white cotton undies to big musical numbers (Lady Gaga blowing the roof off the place with her “Sound of Music” medley; Common and John Legend dropping jaws with their choir-backed rendition of “Glory” from the film “Selma), to moving (some say mawkish) speeches, and the usual stars-behaving-like-stars tomfoolery (another swig, Mr. Cumberbatch?). Also, John Travolta finally learned Idina Menzel’s name.

Check out these video highlights, which feature some of the big moments, not all, then let us know what you think in our post-Oscars poll.
