As usual, NPH lit up the stage at Dolby Theatre. As expected, during his opening monologue, he did his signature song and dance performance. The music had a Disney-like tune to it. It was magical. No wonder. It was written and arranged by Filipino American award winning song writer, Robert Lopez, who wrote the Disney's "Let It Go" song from the movie, "Frozen". The montage of past movies made me feel nostalgic at the films my family and I enjoyed watching over the years.

- Lady Gaga, who resembled more like Barbara Streisand, sang a medley of the songs from the "Sound of Music", which celebrated it's 50th anniversary this year. She belted out every high note and reminded us that she definitely is a very talented singer.
Interesting fact: The movie industry earned $600M last year. Amazingly, $400M was from one movie, "The American Sniper", which was nominated for six awards but only won one - the Best Sound Editing category.
