The 86th Annual Academy Awards took place Sunday, March 2, 2014 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. This was Ellen's second time hosting the Oscars having done so seven years prior. The shows highlights included musical performances by Pharrel ("Happy"), U2 ("Ordinary Love"), Idina Menzel ("Frozen"), and Bette Midler (Wind Beneath my Wings). Also, in celebration of the 75th Anniversary The Wizard of Oz, Pink sang "Over the Rainbow" and Ellen dressed up as Glinda the Good Witch. Other unforgettable moments included presentations by legendary actors Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier, as well as a presentation by Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the first African American President of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. One of the funniest moments of the night was Ellen bringing out a pizza deliveryman and passing out pizza during the broadcast.
