Oscar party highlights: Governors Ball and Miramax
EmptyGOVERNORS BALL: With Oscars in tow, the night's big winners -- Joel and Ethan Coen, Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Tilda Swinton and Javier Bardem -- accepted the waves of congratulations as they made their way through the glittering crowd of 1,500 partygoers at the Governors Ball at Hollywood & Highland. Although George Clooney did not take home any gold himself, he couldn't have been happier for co-star Tilda Swinton, while "No Country For Old Men's" Scott Rudin enjoyed his entry into the elite circle of Oscar-winning producers. Academy president Sid Ganis judged the evening a succcess as guests, who entered under an array of delicate glass bubble clouds and firefly lights, carbed out on Wolfgang Puck's mac 'n' cheese.
MIRAMAX: The champagne flowed as Miramax and Javier Bardem (pictured with Josh Brolin, his "No Country For Old Men" co-star) celebrated their Oscar wins at Bar Marmont with a bash co-hosted by Audi. Bardem won the Oscar for best supporting actor for his role as a menacing villian.
