Last night saw the 90th Academy Awards take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Thousands of pictures documented the night, from the outfits to the awards, but it was Instagram where the best behind-the-scenes snaps were taken.

From the hair and makeup to the selfies and the after parties, these are the best glimpses into backstage life at the Oscars.

Lupita Nyong’o grinned backstage after presenting the Oscars award for production design at the 2018 Academy Awards.

The Black Panther star wore a gilded Atelier Versace gown and used her speech as a chance to speak out for dreamers – undocumented migrants who arrived in the USA as children.

Miley Cyrus and fiance Liam Hensworth took a selfie with Elton John at the star’s AIDS Foundation 90th Academy Awards Viewing Party in Los Angeles.

Andra Day performed Oscar nominated song “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall alongside Common.

She shared a touching photo on Instagram of her next to her mother after the performance.

Gal Gadot, who played the title character in last year’s Wonder Woman, presented the Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling alongside Armie Hammer of “Call Me By Your Name“.

She shared a snap of her behind-the-scenes hair and makeup.

Jane Fonda was one of many to honour the Oscars’ unofficial white dress code to back the Time’s Up movement.

She uploaded a photo of a sneak peak of her floor length Balmain dress to Instagram. She also wore a discreet Time’s Up pin on the front.

Heidi Klum was another to show her hair and makeup prep for the Oscars.

Coco stars Miguel, Natalia LaFourcade and Gael García Bernal performed “Remember Me” at the awards ceremony.

It took home the Oscar for Best Original Song, beating Mary J. Blige’s “Mighty River” (Mudbound), Sufjan Stevens’ “Mystery of Love” (Call Me By Your Name), “This Is Me” (The Greatest Showman), and Common and Diane Warren’s “Stand Up for Something” (Marshall).

Busy Philipps was another to attend Elton John’s afterparty. Before the event, she showed the world her Oscars outfit:  a Christian Siriano dress, Judith Leiber clutch, and Irene Neuwirth jewellery.
