Leonardo DiCaprio celebrates Oscar win with famous friends

Leonardo DiCaprio was the biggest winner at the Oscars, having secured a long-awaited statue - and the Hollywood star was treated as such. Celebrating with family, friends and peers, the night's golden boy hopped from party to party.

First up, Leo hit the Governors Ball, which is held just upstairs from the Oscars ceremony. The ball is an absolute must for Oscar winners; once inside they can have their statuettes engraved on the spot. "Do you do this every year? I wouldn't know!" the actor joked to the etcher.

Afterwards, the award-winner headed to the star-studded Vanity Fair party, where he posed on the red carpet with his coveted trophy before heading inside for the celebrations.

As soon he walked into the room with his mum, his close friend Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyers, Leo was immediately surrounded by well wishers and fellow party-goers wanting to congratulate the star.

According to one onlooker, Leo looked "deliriously happy" at the party – as was his mum Irmelin Indenbirken, who told the magazine how incredibly proud she was of her son.

Ben Affleck, Chris Rock, Rebel Wilson and Puff Diddy were among the famous faces seen chatting to the triumphant actor, who happily posed for photos. And he certainly made a big impression of Rebel, who later shared two pictures taken with the star, writing alongside: "Love you Leo."

As he started to make his way out of the party, the actor was grabbed by Sir Elton John for one last photo. In all the excitement of the night, Leo forgot to include his Oscar in the frame – "Hold it up," Elton said, and the actor happily obliged before ducking out of the door to continue his celebrations elsewhere.
