Los Angeles - Lupita Nyong'o's best supporting actress win wasn't just a major moment for the newcomer - it touched everyone in the Dolby Theatre - both in the audience and backstage.
Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, who'd presented the previous award, stayed backstage to watch the category on a monitor. When the clip of Nyong'o's performance was shown, Hemsworth clapped and Theron said, "So good."
When Nyong'o's name was called, the stars cheered, as did the other backstage workers.
When a teary-eyed Nyong'o walked off stage and into the theater hallway, Ellen DeGeneres was waiting to greet her.
"Yay, yay, yay!" DeGeneres said. "You won an Oscar! And it was such a beautiful speech. Such composure!"
She made the actress smile by adding: "And we crashed Twitter with that photo!"
