There was so much to see and hear during the Oscars telecast last night.

From Pink's awesomely amazing performance of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to John Travolta's butchering of Idina Menzel's name and Ellen DeGeneres' record-breaking selfie, the night truly kept us entertained on many levels.

But there were also things going on that the TV-viewing audience couldn't see.

That's' where we come in. Here we give you five things you didn't see on TV last night during the 86th Academy Awards…

1. Traffic Jam: The front entrance of the Dolby Theatre becomes packed with A-list celebs having their pics taken by the last group of photographers on the carpet. As an announcement is made for guests to get to their seats, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stopped to chat with Christian Bale and his wife Sibi. The Dark Knight star also talked to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Kate Hudson gave a kiss hello to Camilla Alves as Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult said goodbye to some folks before heading into the theater. Hoult looked at JLaw and said, "You look beautiful."

2. Dance Fever: Lupita Nyong'o and Amy Adams weren't the only ones getting into Pharrell's "Happy" performance. Pitt jumped out of his seat at the end of the song and gave one of the youngest dancers a big hug. At about the same time, Jamie Foxx walked by and gave Bruce Dern a kiss on his hand.

3. Friends Forever: During a commercial break, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lady Gaga greeted each other with kiss as they passed each other in front of the stage. Samuel L. Jackson bent down to say hello to Liza Minnelli at the same time Charlize Theron did the same with Lawrence. Jared Leto and Michael B. Jordan hugged…again! A few seconds later, an announcer pleaded, "Clear the aisles and sit down now, please."

4. Drink Up: Amy Adams giggled with Naomi Watts at the ground floor bar before the show. Wolf of Wall Street beauty Margot Robbie enjoyed a glass of white wine while Joseph Gordon-Levitt chatted with a couple of male pals. America's Next Top Model star Miss J Alexander gave Jada Pinkett Smith a long hug when he ran into her and hubby Will Smith.

5. Dinner Time: At the Governors Ball, Julia Roberts wore her eyeglasses as she relaxed at a table with her August: Osage County costar Meryl Streep and first-time Oscars performer Better Midler. (The "Wind Beneath My Wings" singer told me on the red carpet before the show that she turned down previous offers to sing at the awards because she was too nervous to do it.) Waiters at the gala offered guests lots of champagne and Wolfgang Puck eats, including baked potatoes with caviar, Oscar-shaped flatbread covered in salmon, sushi, chicken pot pie and a variety of chocolate desserts. In the Oscar engraving room, Matthew McConaughey asked if he was allowed to take photos of the process before a friend whipped out an iPhone to snap pics.

When you're an Oscar winner, you can do whatever you want.
