Behind the scenes at the Oscars 2015, according to social media

From Channing Tatum to Reese Witherspoon, A-listers give us a sneak peek behind the scenes of Hollywood's biggest night on social media

We know each classic Oscar look is the result of months and months of planning, but our favourite celebrities make dressing up for Hollywood’s biggest night look like a breeze. From rehearsals and morning preparation to red carpet shenanigans, celebrities have been more than gracious letting us into their Oscar experience on social media and naturally we’re more than happy to tag along…


Reese Witherspoon took us along on her Oscar journey, from breakfast right up to supportive messages from dear ol’ mum. 

Oscar day! #BreakfastOfChampions #Oscars ??

Meanwhile her Wild co-star Laura Dern clued us in on a key fashion statement. 

These A-listers took the chance to get glamorous. If you can’t look like a princess at the Oscars, when can you?

Channeling my inner Prince(ss) today. Happy #Oscars Day, people! @theacademy

It’s a prestigious ceremony, but there is clearly plenty of silliness behind the scenes… 

Tight security
