“Exciting, stressful and fun,” Nepales summed up the red-carpet hullabaloo.

His photographs included a precious shot of “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart arriving on crutches. Inside the Dolby theater, he proclaimed actress Charlize Theron “the most stunning in the hall.” Backstage, he willingly basked in the winners’ afterglow.

At the end of the long day, Nepales could only mutter (in Facebook): “Hello, bed.”
