The 88th annual Academy Awards went off with a bang last night, and the stars celebrated by sharing the nonstop special moments on Instagram. From behind-the-scene prep shots to intimate backstage snaps and envy-inducing after-party photos, the attendees gave us an inside look, via their social media feeds, at what Hollywood's biggest night of the year was really like for them.

Some of our favorites? Lady Gaga's snap with fiancé Taylor Kinney that shows the pair sharing a sweet smooch (above), Reese Witherspoon's selfie with BB-8, the robot-droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and best actress winner Brie Larson's after-party 'gram that shows her wearing sneakers and eating a cheeseburger—truly a woman after our own hearts.
