Jennifer Lawrence was the subject of ridicule from Ellen DeGeneres after she fell at Oscars 2014.

DeGeneres was quick to bring up Lawrence’s fall during her speech and even referenced back to the 2013 Oscars when she took a tumble on her way up to the stage, the Washington Post notes.

DiCaprio got his first Oscar nomination almost 20 years ago and has been nominated four times, but he has never won an Oscar. This has led to many people feeling bad for DiCaprio and rooting for him to win, The Telegraph notes.

Blanchett accepted her second Oscar in her career on Sunday for Best Actress.
