The Oscars are considered Hollywood's biggest night, and with good reason. On Sunday, Feb. 24, the 91st Academy Awards held in Los Angeles saw top honors given to the best actors, directors, and films of 2018. Aside from being the first ceremony in 30 years to be conducted without a host, this year’s Oscars were also notable for being one of the most unpredictable in awhile. In a year of exceptional nominees (Black Panther, A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, and Roma), who ultimately went home with the big prize was anyone's game. 

But while Hollywood was busy dishing out shiny awards and getting swept up in emotional speeches, there was so much going down behind the scenes before, during, and after the Oscars.

From candid moments and social media selfies that reveal just how much work goes into getting red-carpet ready, we've rounded up the best social media pics, and press room and after-party photos — you know, all the cool Oscars things you didn’t get to see when the cameras stopped rolling.
