Hours after the Oscar nominees were announced, celebrities found another reason to celebrate: the 2014 Critics’ Choice Awards, broadcast live Thursday from Santa Monica, Calif.
As always, PEOPLE was in the thick of the action, Tweeting from the red carpet, audience and even backstage. We spent some time with the stars and asked them to show us award-worthy selfies. From sweet to sassy poses, these actors delivered. There was no shortage of twofer shots (Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper), but no dynamic duo can compete with Jessica Chastain’s fish face or Kristen Bell’s silly mug or Louis XIII Genius Award winner Julie Delpy’s sultry stare. Check out the most memorable Twitpics and Vines below.
And don’t forget to follow along with @peoplemag Saturday for complete coverage of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, airing at 8 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS.
