We totally felt the love at the 2016 Oscars!
Many jubilant stars smiled their way through Sunday night's Academy Awards, but no one was smiling more than the winners of the night!
And while not everyone was lucky enough to take home Oscar gold, being thanked in an award winner's speech is almost just as big of an honor!
Making movies is a collaborative experience, and no award is earned without the help of a director, costar, or the support of a loved one.
Eddie Redmayne may not have won Best Lead Actor for his role in The Danish Girl, but at least he got a shoutout in Alicia Vikander's speech when she won Best Supporting Actress!
Ch-ch-check out the best GIF reactions of those who were thanked by the night's biggest winners (below)!
After Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl, she thanked her director Tom Hooper:
