Not every big star gets to sit courtside for the Academy Awards. Some attend one of the many parties held throughout Hollywood, while others -- like the rest of us -- are left to watch the telecast from the comfort of their living rooms.

But that works in our favor, too, because even if we can't see all of our favorite stars on the red carpet, we devour their witty Web commentary on Twitter. Here are some of our favorite tweets from last night's Oscars.
