LOS ANGELES-- The first stop on the party circuit for Oscar night winners is almost always the Governor s Ball.
Oh sure, the fancy food Wolfgang Puck lays out there is part of the attraction. But it s also the place to go to get your name engraved on your new toy.
You trading that in? , lead actress winner Jennifer Lawrence asked Ben Affleck when she saw him show up with his best picture statuette.
What can I get for this award? , Affleck joked.
Anne Hathaway arrived with her Oscar in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other.
She covered her mouth in awe when the engraver showed her the nameplate, then helped attach it to her trophy s base. Her husband, Adam Shulman, recorded the moment for posterity on his iPhone.
After spending a moment checking out his Oscar, Affleck stood up to a round of applause from those in the room.
Thank you! I love it, he said.
