Richard Bacon live from the Hotel Roosevelt on Hollywood Boulevard, after this year's Oscars ceremony at the neighbouring Kodak Theatre.

John Wilson, head of the Golden Raspberry Awards - or Razzies - on Oscar winner Sandra Bullock turning up to accept her award in person for Worst Performance in the film All About Steve - just 24 hours before she picked up an Oscar for Best Actress for The Blind Side.

Mark Kermode, LA Times film critic Pete Hammond and Colin Paterson give their own considered reactions to the big winners and losers at last night's Oscars ceremony.

Armando Ianucci talks about In the Loop which was nominated in the Best Adapted Screenplay category - in a pre-recorded interview he gives Richard his reaction to missing out on the ultimate prize (and in a parallel universe, becoming an Oscar winner) and reflects on the whole Oscar nomination experience.

Including, Louis Walsh of The X Factor fame on why he was rooting for The Hurt Locker to win Best Picture, Glee's Matthew Morrison (who plays the leader of McKinley High's show choir Mr Schuester in the hit TV series) and Amanda Holden on covering the stars on the red carpet for CBS and the temptations of a career in Hollywood.

A round-up of the highlights from the aftershow Vanity Fair party, in which Colin Paterson gets reaction from the likes of Jeff Bridges, Tom Hanks, Jon Voight, Carey Mulligan, Stephen Fry, Colin Firth and Nick Hornby

Justice Secretary Jack Straw's statement to the House of Commons about the return to prison of Jamie Bulger's killer Jon Venables after breaching the terms of his release.
