Yes, we all love to pore over the glamourous red carpet shots from the Oscars ceremony, but when it comes to no-holds-barred, behind the scenes access to the biggest event in the film industry's calendar, Instagram is your best bet.

From the pre-event preening shots to red carpet selfies and the after-party festivities, we've rounded up all the best social media moments from the Oscars - #nofilter necessary.

Jacob Tremblay

He may not have been nominated for his role in Room, but 9-year-old Jacob deserves some sort of gong for being the outright sweetest thing about this year's awards season circuit. Case in point? This perfectly posed shot of JT and parents en-route to the Oscars ceremony.

Star Wars superfan Jacob also managed to redefine the notion of #squadgoals (take that, TayTay) by posing with BB8, C3PO and R2D2, the coolest droidest in showbusiness.

Daisy Ridley

Jacob's Star Wars love-in continued when he met Daisy Ridley, who sweetly described meeting the Room star as 'one of the best parts of [her] weekend.' We're enjoying how this Instagram shot manages to resemble a Victorian family portrait, too.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese was another star who couldn't pass up the opportunity to grab a selfie with BB8.

The actress also gave a social media shout out to her 'glam squad,' showing how she prepares for a red carpet event.

Chrissy Teigen

A round of applause for Chrissy Teigen, who demonstrated serious commitment to red carpet style. The pregnant model and TV presenter had to be sewn into her Marchesa gown by two people, and shared a 'from above' snap of the work-in-progress.


Seriously, is this man ageing backwards? Strong use of reflective surfaces, Pharrell.

Mark Ruffalo

If we were at the Oscars, we'd probably make this gag too, Mark Ruffalo.

Lady Gaga

After an emotive performance dedicated to survivors of rape and sexual assault, Gaga posted this touching snap dedicated to her fiancé, Taylor Kinney.

Mindy Kaling

She's known for telling it like it is (to hilarious effect), and here Mindy shows us that even successful A-listers have distinctly un-glamorous items of clothing in their wardrobes. Celebrities - they're just like us!

Chris Rock

In the calm before the Oscars storm, host Chris Rock takes a moment to give a backhanded compliment to his audience.

Elton John

Elton John and Mariah Carey. No explanation needed.

Rebel Wilson

Actress Rebel marks Leo's Big Oscar Win 2016 (TM) with a sweet picture of the man himself, drink in hand a la Jay Gatsby.

Brie Larson

Her victorious after-party snap confirms what we've been saying for a while: Brie Larson is the queen of Instagram (and our spirit animal.) Congratulations, Brie!
