Past winner, 2015 nomineeand presenter Oprah posted this pic of her rehearsing before the big show. It’s comforting to know that even the Queen of TV still needs to run lines.

Best Actressnominee (and champion instagrammer) Reese Witherspoon posted this adorable picture of a picture, along with the flowers her husband gave her. One, two, threeaww! 

We’re as obsessed withCharlotte Tilbury’s makeup lineas we are with the insanely talented makeup artist herself. She posted this pre-show pic of the gorgeous Rachel Roy, who was rocking one of the night’s biggest trends: ruby red lips

Robert Vetica posted this mysterious close up of this sleek, modern take on a French roll. We now know this wasBest Actressnominee Marion Cotillard’s red carpet hairstylewellplayed all around. 

Is there anything that we love more than a hot man selfie?Best Supporting Actornominee Mark Ruffalo instagrammed this fine (and finely filtered) photo before leaving for the Oscars. 

Celebrity stylist Leslie Fremar posted this behind-the-scenes shot of Reese Witherspoon’s flawless Oscar hair and gown about 45 minutes before she arrived on the red carpet. Believe us, we counted; we needed to see those perfect loose waves on our TV! 

Power stylist Elizabeth Stewart posted this amazing photo of Viola Davis on her way to the ceremony. How is she so perfect?

A post shared by JARED LETO (@jaredleto) on

Lest we panic that our #ManCrushMonday Jared Leto wasn’t attending the Oscars this year, he posted this photo on the way to the eventthough wewere clearly too blinded by his perfect ombre locks to pay attention to his powder blue suit. We love a man who takes a style risk, but why fight the hotness so hard, Jared?

Chrissy Teigen isone of our favorite instagrammers, and this hilarious video she made during one of the nights more bonkers performances is hands down adorable. Bonus points for a brief John Legend appearance! 

Reese Witherspoon is perfect and her social media team is on point; this is a hands down stunning photo that really shows off her beautiful Oscars hair to its fullest (and yes, that pun was intended). Slaying. 

Charlotte Tilbury posted this incredibly glam shot of Sienna Miller’s Oscars makeup: intense smoky eyes and pink-nude lips. SO IN LOVE. 

J.Lo had one of the biggest looks of the nighthere she is getting her (insanely gorgeous) ponytail done before the Oscars red carpet.

A post shared by Anna Kendrick (@annakendrick47) on

After their opening number with host Neil Patrick Harris, Anna Kendrick and Jack Black took a victorious post-performance photo. We actually like this hair better than what she wore on the red carpetbut we have SUCH a talent crush on her, we’ll forgive anything. 

Then J.Lo posted a selfie with Meryl Streep, and we’re pretty sure we all died from sheer delight.Read more: Get the Look: Emma Stone’s Oscar Makeup
