The 2014 Oscars have come and gone, but lucky for us we have Instagram snapshots to last a lifetime. 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o has been living a Cinderella-like fairy tale over the last few weeks, charming award show audiences with her poise and stealing the spotlight on red carpets with her stunning style choices. The whirlwind continued over Oscar weekend, where she schmoozed with some of Hollywood’s elite and even made a new friend. Hint: he’s gold and his name is Oscar.
The 86th annual Academy Awards was full of wonderful and weird moments, including Ellen DeGeneres‘ massive celebrity selfie and gigantic mid-show pizza order. If you were one of the concerned Oscar viewers worried that Ellen had missed Kerry Washington‘s request for a slice (it’s hard when Harrison Ford cuts the line), rest assured that Olivia Pope handled her hunger with some gluten-free ‘za backstage.
Asking celebrities to dress up and sticking them in a confined space always makes for an interesting evening, so whether you were a presenter like Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan, or a big winner like Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, chances are you made memories that topped sitting home and watching Girls. It’s such a big night for Hollywood, everyone wants to get involved. Kim Kardashian may not be an Oscar nominee (…yet), but just like last year, she and her sisters found their way inside an exclusive Oscar night party. Yes, but did they find their way to the In N Out burgers like Anna Kendrick? If you’re wondering how celebrities celebrated their big Oscar night, look no further than our Instagram roundup, above.
