IN PICTURES: Our 25 favourite shots from Oscars 2013

Didn't stay up late to watch the Oscars? Here's what you missed...

Daniel Day-Lewis may have won all of the Oscars and Anne Hathaway's nipples grabbed most of the headlines (as well as their own Twitter account), but as the stars converged on the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood last night, there were plenty of other moments worth talking about.

Enjoy our gallery of the Top 25 pictures from Oscars 2013:

1. KRISTEN STEWART ROCKING THE 'DRAGGED THROUGH A HEDGE' LOOK

(Picture: John Shearer/Invision/AP)

On a night when every star and starlet in LA pays tribute to old-school Hollywood glamour, K-Stew rolls up on the red carpet looking like she hasn't slept in three days. On crutches.

And pulls it off.

Kristen, we love you. We genuinely do.

2. ADELE TELLS A DIRTY JOKE

(Picture: Matt Sayles/Invision/AP)

Well, we are presuming.

Going by the look on Justin Theroux's face, it was really filthy.

That's a strapless red Valentino gown that Jennifer Aniston is wearing, by the way. We know because we looked it up.

3. ANNE HATHAWAY GIVES US ALL SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT

(Picture: John Shearer/Invision/AP)

Two things, in fact.

4. BRYAN CRANSTON ENJOYS A NIGHT AWAY FROM THE METH LAB

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

Good to see Bryan and wife Robin out and about. The man we know best as Walter White wasn't up for any awards, but he makes it onto the list because he's ace and because we need an excuse to share this tweet:

5. HELENA BONHAM CARTER DOES NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS CRAP

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

Things Helena Bonham Carter likes to do: Acting. Being a legend. Cultivating her unique look. Making toast soldiers for Tim Burton.

Things Helena Bonham Carter does not like to do: Having her photograph taken on the red carpet

6. HELEN HUNT LOOKING CLASSY

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

Helen Hunt shows you don't have to splash out to make an impression on the red carpet, wearing an $80 navy gown from H&M.

Yes, that H&M.

We'll gloss over the $700,000 worth of bling that she used to accessorize.

7. OLIVIA MUNN DOES VA-VA-VOOM

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

Ms Munn shows why the red carpet is taken seriously. Looking like a knockout will get you noticed, and getting noticed gets you work. Simples.

8. SAMANTHA BARKS

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

We didn't know anything about Samantha Barks before seeing this picture - we've not seen Les Miserables, in which she made her big-screen debut.

But this shot made sit up and take notice, along with every casting director in Hollywood. She's 22, and from the Isle of Man, of all places..

We'll be hearing her name a lot in future, we suspect.

9. STILL GOT IT, CZJ

(Picture: John Shearer/Invision//AP)

Catherine Zeta-Jones is 43.

Apparently her red-carpet appearance with hubbie Michael Douglas was "a united front", following "rumours of a split".

We don't know anything about that, but we do know that CZJ is a goddess.

10. HALLE BERRY'S ARCHITECTURE-INSPIRED GOWN

(Picture: John Shearer/Invision/AP)

Bombshell Berry trod the red rug in what was officially described as "a plunging metallic Versace gown".

However this description might have taken the air out of her tyres a bit:

11. THIS PICTURE INSIDE THE CEREMONY

(Picture: AP)

And so, to the actual awards ceremony itself. Feel free to tag yourself in this photo!

No, wait… that's Facebook.

12. MCFARLANE AND FRIENDS PUTTING ON THE RITZ

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)

The jury may be out on Seth McFarlane's freshman performance as Oscars host - a couple of jokes cutting a bit too close to the bone for the Academy audience, but the boy can sing.

We like this shot of Seth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe cutting a rug betwixt awards.

13. GOOD TO SEE YOU MADE IT PAST THE BOUNCERS

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)

Quentin Tarantino. Makes great films. Is honoured by the Academy with an award for Best Original Screenplay.

Still manages to look like he's a on a stag weekend in Bundoran.

14. IT WAS HIM

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision//AP)

Melissa McCarthy answers the perennial question: 'Who farted?'

15. JENNIFER LAWRENCE TAKES A TUMBLE

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)

You're Jennifer Lawrence. You're just 22 years old and one of Hollywood's rising stars. Your name has just been called out as having won your first Oscar. What do you do?

You trip on the steps and fall on your snot.

Still, good recovery.

And her post-win press conference is pretty funny - "I'm sorry - I took a shot before this."

UPDATE: ZOMG THIS PICTURE!

16. THIS GUY'S HAIR

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)

This is Claudio Miranda accepting his award for best cinematography for "Life of Pi".

He should have won it for Best Hair.

17. HEIGHT MISMATCH OF THE NIGHT

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)

Dustin Hoffman is a giant of the cinematic arts.

Charlize Theron is a giant, full stop.

(Memo to Dustin - next time, bring a box to stand on).

18. QUVENZHANÉ WALLIS MUNCHING POPCORN

(Picture: Chris Pizzello/Invision//AP)

Quvenzhané Wallis didn't get the Best Actress gong for her role as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild, so she made up for it by eating her entire bodyweight in free popcorn.

Fair play.

19. DANIEL DAY-LEWIS

(Picture: Matt Sayles/Invision/AP)

The dishy DDL becomes the first thespian ever to win three Academy Awards, suprising nobody with the Best Actor gong for Lincoln.

He lives in WICKLOW, you know. Which makes him IRISH.

So we're great, too.

20. GUY IN A KILT ENJOYING HIMSELF A BIT TOO MUCH

(Picture: Ian West/PA wire)

Every year there are a couple of folks from an 'underdog' film that, dazzled by the limelight of Tinseltown and in full knowledge it may well be their first and last time taking part in proceedings, seem determined to make the most of it, and decorum be damned.

Hello Mark Andrews, director of Best Animated Feature winner Brave, kilt-wearer and champion gurner.

21. DEM LIPS

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

We all knew Adele can SANG, and now she's got the Oscar to prove it.

But God damn it, the girl can POUT, too.

22. THE FINEST BEARDS AVAILABLE TO HUMANITY

(Picture: Ian West/PA Wire)

We have them here, and we have them now.

Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Some Other Guy swap notes on facial hair.

In other news… what does Affleck have written on his knuckles?

23. ALIEN CREATURES AMONG US

(Picture: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom are such an impossibly good-looking couple, we have reached the conclusion that they are in fact ambassadors of an extra-terrestrial race who are living among us in order to study our ways.

Which makes us feel a LOT better.

24. ANNE HATHAWAY LETTING DOWN WHAT LITTLE HAIR SHE HAS

(Picture: /AP)

Because what's the point in winning an Oscar if you can't go to a glitzy party, show off your statue and have a glass of champers or nine?

Note: Strategic nipple-hiding. Somebody's had a word with her.

25. AND FINALLY

(Picture: Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)

Bono.
