The Academy Awards ran over three hours long – and was studded with stars. But even still, there was plenty you didn’t see on the ABC telecast. From what deejay Joel Madden was spinning to Jake Gyllenhaal’s surprising “news,” find out what you missed from inside Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.

• What a kidder! Presenter Jake Gyllenhaal was having a prolonged conversation with Rachel McAdams in the lobby of the Kodak Theatre before the actor finally introduced her to a friend, saying, “This is Rachel McAdams, she’s the mother of my child!”

• Matt Damon took a champagne break with his wife, Luciana. The two shared glasses of bubbly and hung out with Best Supporting Actor nominee Stanley Tucci, who happily toasted Christoph Waltz for winning the award.

• Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were spotted joking and giggling as they whizzed backstage from their seats before presenting the tribute to horror flicks.

• Where was deejay Joel Madden all night? The rocker was spinning from a private box adjacent to the stage. During the show, Madden sat and watched the ceremony – but when it cut to commercial, he was up and playing tunes such as “Respect” and Lionel Richie’s “Easy Like Sunday Morning.”
