Everyone was waiting for the 86th Academy Awards to begin last night. The Golden Globes may be the first pick of dresses we see hit the red carpet, the BAFTAs may be the night London comes alive with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but really, we all know the Oscars is the high point of the awards season, and last night’s ceremony was no exception.

Ellen Generes took us through the winners list of 2014, her comic stings in between scoring wide-eyed laughs from the star-studded audience, and none more so than whens she enlisted the help of Bradley Cooper to snap possibly the most A-List calibre selfie ever taken. If only he’d had longer arms, we might have been able to squeeze all of Jared Leto into shot on the left!

It was perhaps the most cheery awards ceremony thus far this year. Bradley Cooper canoodled lovingly with his now permanent side-kick Suki Waterhouse, whilst Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence had a giggle-filled catch-up on the red carpet.

And then of course there were the gowns. Oh the gowns! The leading ladies did her proud. Cate Blanchett couldn’t have chosen a better night to hit the spot dress wise in her decadent Armani creation, as she bagged the Best Actress Award for Blue Jasmine.

Lupita Nyong’o continued her winning streak when she picked up her Best Actress In A Supporting Role Award to happy cheers from the audience. She graced the red carpet in a floating pale blue Prada number. The deep V has garnered divided opinions, some thinking it the perfect fit for the young 12 Years A Slave actress, others believing the V to be a tad too low for Lupita’s slim frame. Others have even observed the round earrings and headband accessories and likened her to Disney’s Cinderella on ball night. Well who doesn’t want to be compared to a princess?!

As always Lupita gave her fans what they wanted to see via the wonder that is Instagram as she snapped herself smiling with her styling team, as well as her manicure moments of the night.

Other dress successes of the night included the likes of Sandra Bullock, whose sweep of glossy hair down one shoulder was envy inducing. Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts kept it sleek in the hair department, and Kate Hudson appeared as a vision in gold.

Of course we couldn’t get through our Oscars 2014 round up without a scout around Instagram. Here is what the stars got up to behind the scenes and during preparations for their big night. Even Pharrell (who might not have donned his characteristic hat of 2014, but did cause a sensation in shorts) contributed to the party-preop Instagram stream!
