As the gravity of the night began to set in, ET caught up with last night's Oscar winners
as they headed to some of the most exclusive parties on the planet.
Newly minted Oscar winners Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette and Julianne Moore spoke to ET after their Oscars
"That's got my name on it!" Patricia said, gazing at her award for Best Supporting Actress. "This is real. No taking it back."
"This actually happened! Can you believe it?" Eddie told ET's Brooke Anderson while grasping his Best Actor award. "It sounds cliché, but it's the stuff that dreams are made of, so it feels pretty damn thrilling."
The British actor shared the entire experience with his new bride Hannah Bagshawe.
"I couldn't have done it without her," Eddie said. "We're going to go have a really fun night."
Likewise, Best Actress winner Julianne shared the moment with her husband Bart Freundlich.
"I haven't [stopped smiling]," Julianne told ET outside of the Vanity Fair Oscar party.
Chrissy Teigen congratulated her husband John Legend with a kiss after admiring his name on a freshly-engraved Academy Award for Best Original Song.
John's fellow Best Original Song Oscar winner, Common, clutched his statuette tightly when chatting with ET's Nichelle Turner outside of the Vanity Fair Oscar party.
"I can't hold this like it's something I regularly hold," Common said. "This is an Academy Award."
J.K. Simmons joked that he was going to keep his Best Supporting Actor award "in the mini-fridge in the bathroom."
A few of those who didn't win golden statues on the night went home with LEGO Oscars.
"I'm going to keep this guy," Oprah Winfrey said. "This is my take-home LEGO Oscar. I really like him during the song, 'Everything Is Awesome,' and so is this."
The Academy presented Oprah with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 2012.
