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.
