Oscars 2013: Top tweets by Hudson Valley celebrities
Howard Stern, Rosie O'Donnell and Max Greenfield were among the Hudson Valley celebrities who headed to Twitter to weigh in on Sunday night's Academy Awards ceremony.
Here are 15 of the night's most notable tweets, in chronological order.
As his best-known character Pee-wee Herman, Peekskill native Paul Reubens kicked off the Oscar coverage by documenting his supposed run-in with a grouchy security guard backstage.
The security is extreme backstage! I just bumped in to another Oscar... twitter.com/peeweeherman/s…— Pee-wee Herman (@peeweeherman) February 25, 2013
Shock jock Stern, who kicked off his professional DJ career in Briarcliff Manor, showed compassion for Malik Bendjelloul, the "Searching for Sugar Man" director whose acceptance speech for best documentary feature was drowned out by the pit orchestra's "Jaws" theme.
And they say I'm mean. That jaws music was brutal.— Howard Stern (@HowardStern) February 25, 2013
Suffern native and "Real Housewives of New York City" star Carole Radziwill grumbled about her Oscar snub.

Bedford resident Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty was all about a former "American Idol" contestant's performance during the movie-musical tribute.

From her Nyack home, Rosie O'Donnell was also a fan, but her daughter had a slight preference for a movie whose music was performed a cappella.

Dobbs Ferry native and "New Girl" star Max Greenfield joshed about Adele's performance of "Skyfall," which would win an Oscar later that night.

By the time the In Memoriam segment rolled around, National Lampoon contributor and Pomona native Evan Kessler was among the viewers starting to feel the show's length.
At the end of this In Memoriam segment we'll learn Bruce Willis has been dead this whole time. #Oscars— Evan J'daté Kessler(@EvanJKessler) February 25, 2013
And when Barbra Streisand emerged to sing "The Way We Were" during for that segment, Northern Westchester resident Nick Di Paolo tweeted what most movie fans under the age of 60 were thinking.

Ingrid Michaelson, who spent a summer working in Nyack, was lamenting the passage of time.

On a more serious note, Rob Thomas reflected on the passing of Adam "MCA" Yauch, who briefly attended Bard College in Poughkeepsie before he co-founded the Beastie Boys.

When Ang Lee won his Oscar for best director, for his work on "Life of Pi," one of his "Brokeback Mountain" colleagues — Bedford native and "House of Cards" star Kate Mara — couldn't contain her excitement.

Hyde Park resident and WRRV disc jockey Deuce was a bit flummoxed by Meryl Streep's announcement that Daniel Day-Lewis had won best actor for "Lincoln."
She didn't open the envelope. For all we know, that award belongs to Ryan Guzman for STEP UP REVOLUTION. #Oscars— Deuce (@DeuceRadio) February 25, 2013
