The major fashion statements, emotional speeches and iconic moments throughout the 88th Academy Awards already had us buzzing with excitement...but then you go behind the scenes of the big night, and the fun is taken to a whole new level.
While we adored the many Instagram and Twitter pictures posted during the big night, several of our favorite A-list celebrities added a new social media outlet to their Oscars extravaganza: Snapchat.
Hudson showed us all the fun she had while getting glammed up to attend the Vanity Fair Oscars party. From playing with funny filters to dancing around in the car to snapping selfies with Hilary Swank, she definitely had a great time.
Jonas also appeared to enjoy himself! Though he didn't snap any photos with his rumored love interest (Hudson), he did show himself hanging out with good pal Demi Lovato at the Vanity Fair party. Of course, the Snapchat story became a competition between the two to see who would get more views.
Maria Menounos' hairstylist, Dimitris Giannetos, captured some truly awesome footage of Blake Shelton watching Gwen Stefani as she performed during an after-party. At one point, she confessed to having one hell of a "crazy" year, but she looked super happy nonetheless!
Lady Gaga took us on her journey from the makeup chair to walking the red carpet with her fiancé Taylor Kinney to posing for photos at the Vanity Fair party with Elton John. She even revealed how nervous she was to hit the stage for her big performance, which she ended up totally killing!
Despite looking about ready to pop, Chrissy Teigen appeared to have a ball throughout the Oscars evening with her hubby John Legend by her side. The model capture her night from her drive to the awards show all the way until she got snuggled up in bed and (adorably) kissed her hubby goodnight.
Legend also shared his own Snapchat story, which was pretty similar to Chrissy's. However, he captured a LOL-worthy moment as his wife struggled to fix the tulle skirt of her dress. Glad she figured that out!
Witherspoon adorably captured her Oscars night from start to finish, taking her audience from the makeup chair to the red carpet to hanging backstage with a few Star Wars characters.
Kevin Hart was the butt of several of Chris Rock's jokes, but that didn't stop him from having the time of his life during the Oscars and parties that followed. In fact, he even shared a video of him and his "girl," showing a little extra PDA, claiming they were both a little drunk. LOL!
Olivia Culpo had a great time working with E! News and then attending an Oscars party...well, with the exception of one minor set-back: her hair fell out! Yes, in one of her Snapchat videos, she wrote "Emergency!" and showed how her hair had fallen out of its up-do. Luckily, she had a friend with to fix her back up and help save the day!
Watch E!'s live 2016 Oscars red carpet coverage starting at 1:30p.m. ET/10:30a.m. PT on Sunday, February 28th
