Oscar party highlights: Governors Ball and Miramax


GOVERNORS 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.

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.
