Inside the Governor's Ball: Oscar Nominee Hailee Steinfeld the Belle of the Ball
Feeling the love, The Fighter's Mark Wahlberg and Oscar winner Christian Bale-- who made a quick stop by the ball, calling his win "absolutely amazing" -- were both eager to introduce themselves to True Grit's young star Hailee Steinfeld.
Clutching his Oscar, Bale walked up to congratulate Steinfeld on her nomination and introduce her to his wife. Wahlberg also congratulated Steinfeld, gave the young starlet a kiss on the cheek and posed for a few photos.
The 14-year-old Steinfeld was soaking in her first Oscars experience. In a "one-of-a-kind Marchesa" dress, Steinfeld rubbed elbows with Hollywood's elite at show's official after-party. "It twirls around," she said of her pale pink tea length dress. "I'm having a great time. I'm going to Vanity Fair party tonight. Everyone says it's the best party."
Meanwhile, 127 Hours director Danny Boyle was a big fan of David O. Russell's The Fighter. At the ball, Boyle introduced himself to best supporting actress nominee Amy Adams and said: "I thought you and Melissa both should have won."
