2010 Academy Awards
  • Matt and Lucy attended the Oscar ceremony on Sunday with Alexia and Lucy's mother. They did not attend any after-parties. Matt lost the Best Supporting Actor award to Christoph Waltz, and presented the Best Documentary Feature award to The Cove. Matt wore a Salvatore Ferragamo suit and Lucy's dress was by Christian Lacroix. Photos are from Zimbio.



  • A quote from Matt about his family attending the ceremony is at ET, with a report from early in the ceremony at People. Other Twitter postings are below, but note the Extra comment has not been verified.



    Another nominee who had his kids on his mind was Matt Damon, who said of his daughters, "Actually, somewhere around here my mother-in-law has our 11-year-old, and the little ones are home with the other grandma."

    Matt Damon took a champagne break with his wife, Luciana. The two shared glasses of bubbly and hung out with best supporting actor nominee Stanley Tucci, who happily toasted Christoph Waltz for winning the Best Supporting Actor award.

    EW
    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."

    Matt Damon: "I loved the documentary 'The Cove' and I loved Meryl and Stanley together in Julie and Julia.

    Matt Damon: "I loved 'Hurt Locker' and just worked with Anthony Mackie. I thought it's a shame he was overlooked."

    Matt Damon: "I'm not crazy about the ten best pictures but I'm not going to get worked up over it."

    Ben Lyons of E!
    @iamBenLyons: Matt Damon just told me that while he was presenting, Clooney was heckling him from the front row! Ha! Go to www.onexone.org @THEDAILY10

    Extra
    Matt Damon tells @Extra about his wife and baby on way. Says he and #Oscar-nominee George Clooney will be "at the bar."

  • On Saturday Matt attended the private Night Before party and charity event. A report on the agent's party on Friday is at E!.

    Jennifer Garner looking toned in black and rather Alias-like accompanied hubby Ben Affleck at the event, and she didn't say hi to JT at all. Instead Garner was all smiles again as she hung by Ben's side. All good in paradise? Uh, hardly babes. Affleck was happiest when he was next to...

    Matt Damon, who "looked adorable." It's always refreshing to see a Hollywood friendship that lasts!

    "Matt and Ben were laughing and smiling the whole night," a source at the party tells us. "Damon, who rarely let go of wife Luciana's hand, held court next to Ben most of the party."

  • A cameo from Matt closed a new skit by Jimmy Kimmel, available to US readers at YouTube, or to all readers at The Sun.

  • An interview with Paul Greengrass at the Guardian is here. An interview with Matt will air on UK program GMTV on Monday morning.

    Re: hOORAY FOR MATT AND LUCY

    Maybe not. The post may just have been speculative or misleading based on the flowing dress she was wearing.

    BTW, here's Lucy's quote when she was interviewed on the 'Behind the red carpet' program and asked about Matt's performance in Invictus:

    "It was a great movie. He was wonderful. That's why he's nominated."

    She then walked off laughing and the interviewer George talked about how shy she is.

    Re: HOORAY FOR MATT AND LUCY

    She is a shy person but looks so beautiful, i love her dress especially the color, it really suits her and looking at these photos by the way she stands in some i to think she is pregnant and if she is congratulations to them both such a lovely genuine couple who adore there family, Matt has his priorities right. Also before i forget Matt is handsome as always, he nearly burst out laughing when he was presenting, that will be Clooney's fault

    Whats the comment re Ben refering to - Jennifer Garner looking toned in black and rather Alias-like accompanied hubby Ben Affleck at the event, and she didn't say hi to JT at all. Instead Garner was all smiles again as she hung by Ben's side. All good in paradise? Uh, hardly babes. Affleck was happiest when he was next to... Is that just a sarcy comment meaning Ben was talking to Matt most of the night which is what best mates do when they haven't seen each other for a long time, the wives were seemingly talking it up all night together to, we've all been to get togethers like that, partners tend to go to friends for catchups. I wish they would leave Ben and Jen alone, sorry thats my rant done,

    Re: HOORAY FOR MATT AND LUCY

    I don't think Matt and Lucy have looked better. Amazing change from Matt since his rough look at the Green Zone premiere - and even with Matt going unshaven presumably to start a new look for True Grit (which starts filming in a week).

    The start of the E story was that Jennifer Garner didn't have any contact with Justin Timberlake, who is the partner of her supposed new best friend Jessica Biel (if anyone believes that fake patter to promote a movie). And then Ted's just trying to create a story by saying that Ben was happier with Matt than with Jennifer. And that's nothing new.
