The show's annual tribute included an introduction by George Clooney and a performance by Barbra Streisand.

The light-hearted Oscars took its customary somber turn with the annual In Memoriam montage, a video tribute to those who died over the last year.

George Clooney introduced the memorial, a long list filled with Oscar winners representing all specialties in the film business.

"In memoriam: the friends and people who we've admired and that we've lost this year, and although they're no longer with us, they've left something behind," Clooney said. "Maybe something that makes us laugh or cry or maybe just escape for a couple of hours. So for those friends who are on this list tonight, and many others who aren't, we thank you for the memories."

After the tribute, which included director Tony Scott, actor Ernest Borgnine and producer Richard Zanuck, Barbra Streisand gave a tribute to her friend Marvin Hamlisch.

"Marvin Hamlisch was a composer of extraordinary depth and versatility. He was also a very kind and generous friend who could always make me laugh," she said. From there, she launched into a gentle, heartfelt rendition of "The Way We Were."
