As the stars gather at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles, they’re also taking to Twitter to share their experiences in real time.

One highlight so far — this shot of Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson, fiancé Justin Mikita, and their respective mothers en route to the ceremony. Apparently, they’re all wearing spanx, and they’re all mostly comfortable with that.

Check out the rest of the tweets below, including from host Jimmy Kimmel, and nominees Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Judd Apatow, Hugh Bonneville, and Eric Stonestreet. (Those Modern Family peeps are Twitter machines!) We’ll update with more of your favorite celebs posts throughout the evening.
