Oscars host, Ellen DeGeneres, was always going to liven up the ceremony - and her opening monologue didn't disappoint.

The comedian used the 9 minute speech to poke fun at celebrity guests including Jennifer Lawrence who took her second Oscar tumble just moments before on the red carpet (watch it here).

She also affectionately teased guests including Liza Minelli and Amy Adams who all took the jokes in good spirits.

Ellen, 56, later posed for the most star studded picture of all time, surrounded by Brangelina, Meryl Streep and Bradley Cooper.

The star was dressed in head to toe Saint Lauren and earlier arrived on the red carpet with wife Portia De Rossi.

Watch Ellen's full opening monologue below.
