Oscars: Clearly, the bar is the place to be

• “Stanley Tucci and Matt Damon went straight to the bar after losing. Bought each other a drink and toasted their loss.”

• “Damon and Tucci are back at the bar. When asked if they’re going back into the theater, they both say, ‘No!’ Damon adds, ‘We’re done.’”

• “Jeremy Renner is at the bar drinking water. ‘I’ll alternate it with scotch,’ he says. ‘It’s only 6 pm. I’ve got to pace myself.’”

• “After losing best original screenplay to Mark Boal, Tarantino and producer Lawrence Bender head to the bar for tequila shots.”

• “Tarantino and Bender just clinked glasses with Christoph Waltz, who is holding his Oscar in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.”

• “Clean up in aisle three: Woody Harrelson broke his wine glass at the bar. He started cleaning it up himself, until a bartender took over.”

• “Sam Worthington ordered a beer at the bar — then realized he didn’t have money to pay for it. Bartender gave it to him free.”
