Stephen Hawking has said he is "very proud" of British actor Eddie Redmayne after his Oscar win.
Redmayne scooped the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything which tells the story of the physicist in his younger years.
Hawking congratulated Redmayne by posting a message to the actor on his official Facebook page:
Female stars are calling for reporters to ask them more thoughtful questions on the red carpet, not just who designed their dresses.
British writers singled out their inspirational mothers for the work they do taking calls in crisis centres.
Many of the stars at the Oscars shared a view from the other side of the red carpet on social media, here is a glimpse behind the curtain.
