Sorry, "In memoriam" segment.

One of the biggest tear-worthy moments of the Oscars on Sunday came early on in the night thanks to an appearance from one of the real-life Hidden Figures. 

Katherine Johnson — a physicist, space scientist and mathematician — joined Taraji P. Henson (who plays her in the film), Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer on stage to present an award. 

And the moment brought out a lot of emotions from viewers.
