If you can’t be in the audience watching the Academy Awards in person, the next best thing you can do is to sit in front of the TV with some snacks and your laptop or smartphone in hand and keep up a running commentary.
Which you’re doing right now. Don’t deny it.
But that’s okay. Plenty of other well-known stars – popular in our households but not quite popular enough to get tickets – are doing the same thing. And they gush and snark as well as anyone.
Such as Jessica Alba‘s tweet from the red-carpet special, “I love Melissa McCarthy so much! She looks gorgeous!”
We caught some of the best comments as the big night began. Take a look here and enjoy!nggallery id=’117481′
