This list is meant for those who watched the #Oscars and found these images as equally inspiring, powerful, moving and hilarious as we did.

Almost time. #Oscars

Viola Davis Wins for Fences

@charlizeafrica congratulates @violadavis backstage at the #oscars

“There’s one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered — one place — and that’s the graveyard. People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies. Exhume those stories. The stories of the people who dreamed, big, and never saw those dreams to fruition. People who fell in love and lost. I became an artist and thank god I did, because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.” — @violadavis, who just won best supporting actress for her performance in “Fences.” The photographer @patrickfallon, who took this picture, is inside the Dolby Theatre tonight for the #AcademyAwards.
