During Sunday night’s (February 26) Oscars, celebrities took to Twitter to react to the wins (both their own and those of their colleagues), the looks, the show itself, and, of course, that Dictator stunt pulled on Ryan Seacrest.
“My mom always told me to pack two jackets for red carpets,” Seacrest joked about being plastered with “ashes” on the red carpet by Sacha Baron Cohen, who was done up in his Dictator character. “Always wondered why. Now I know.”
His lady love, Julianne Hough, also laughed off the incident, adding, “Awe! @RyanSeacrest It’s ok, we’ll just make pancakes with the leftovers! #goodcomposure ”
Diddy managed to snag some Oscar gold as the executive producer of the Best Documentary winner, “Undefeated.” “God is the greatest!!!!” he wrote. “Thank you! #undefeated!!!!” He later added, “I am buggin.” He got some love from a number of folks, including Ellen DeGeneres, who wrote, “@iamdiddy did it! Congratulations on Best Documentary!”
Justin Bieber took to Twitter to congratulate host Billy Crystal, who featured the young pop star in his opening montage. “a BIG SHOUTOUT to Billy Crystal. Thanks for letting be a part of the show and you killed it tonight. #muchlove,” he wrote.
One of the big topics of the night was Octavia Spencer, who won for her supporting role in “The Help.” Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson wrote, “Yes!!!! Welcome to the family Octavia !! Congrats!!! Amazing!!”
“Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder also had love for Spencer, writing, “Congratulations Octavia!!!!!! You deserve this- you’re amazing. Enjoy it, it’s your night Xo Ian.”
Despite not taking home an Oscar for “My Week With Marilyn,” Michelle Williams seems to have made a friend in Perez Hilton, who wrote, “There is something so delicate and precious about Michelle Williams! I just wanna be her friend and give her lots of hugs! #Oscars.”
Hough was back on Twitter at the show’s end to send love to Meryl Streep, who did take home an Oscar for her lead role in “The Iron Lady.” “Meryl makes it possible to be the best at what you do yet still keep your values family and friendships first,” she said. “That’s what makes Meryl, Meryl.”
While the show is all about that little statue that gets handed out to the winners, Kim Kardashian weighed in on some of the night’s looks. “Wow Angelina went fun & sexy!!!! LOVE,” she wrote. “OMG Gwenyth Paltrow looks soooo chic! WOW. Wow JLO looks amazing!!! Emma Stone looks beautiful! The glam on the red carpet is heating up!”
