On Sunday evening, the Academy Awards were handed out, and Slumdog Millionaire swept the field with eight wins, including Best Picture. The world is still reacting to Hollywood's biggest night -- and posting many of those reactions here on YouTube.


For those of you who missed the three-hour plus telecast, CelebTV provides a great recap of the show in less than two minutes, highlighting some of the night's most memorable moments, including Heath Ledger's posthumous win for Best Supporting Actor. Meanwhile, TV Guide's YouTube Channel features videos from both the red carpet, such as this interview with the child actors from Slumdog, as well as reactions from the winners just minutes after their names were called:

But perhaps one of the most touching post-Oscars videos we've seen is this video from Longinus Fernandes, whom director Danny Boyle mentioned during his acceptance speech for Best Director. Boyle apologized to Fernandes, who choreographed the dance sequence at the end of Slumdog Millionaire, for leaving his name off the credits. Fernandes thanks Boyle for the mention, saying it was one of the most joyful moments of
his life:


Best,
