Oscars 2015: Celebrities Take Over Social Media on Big Day
Celebrities took to social media to preview the ceremony and share insights from backstage.
It's the big show, and celebrities spent the day primping, celebrating, snarking and trying desperately to avoid the uncharacteristic L.A. rain — and then they posted all about it on Twitter and Instagram. THR compiled the best of the best on social media for #Oscars2015.
Lena Dunham and Reese Witherspoon joined the list of celebrities who expressed their support of the #AskHerMore campaign, which beseeches red-carpet interviewers to ask women more substantial questions than what they are wearing.
Zoe Saldana acknowledged the team effort that prepping for the Oscars takes and Witherspoon gushed about her date.
Witherspoon also gave a shout out to her biggest fan: her mom.
Meanwhile, Rainn Wilson and Ryan Seacrest expressed concern over the unusual L.A. rain.
