That mustache Matt Damon was sporting last week for a movie role was gone just in time for Oscar Sunday.

The clean-shaven nominee and presenter hit the Governors Ball after the show hand in hand with wife Luciana and happy to be stubble-free.

"Oh, hell yeah!" he told me, when I asked if he was glad to be rid of the facial hair.

Also in a good mood that night was...

Meryl Streep, who beamed despite her loss to Sandra Bullock.

"I'm thrilled!" she replied, when asked about Kathryn Bigelow being the first woman to win Best Director. "I think all the girls did really well tonight!"

Another nominee not being a sore loser was Avatar's James Cameron, who attended the ball with wife Suzy Amis. The director seemed to be in good spirits despite his movie getting schooled by his ex-wife's.

Zoe Saldana also looked happy, arriving with her boyfriend Keith Britton, although she was struggling a bit with her poufy Givenchy gown.  

"That's quite a dress!" one partygoer remarked as she tried to gather the huge train. "Yes, this is a lot of dress!" she agreed.

Celebrating their big wins at the ball were Mo'Nique, Jeff Bridges, Christoph Waltz and Sandra Bullock, who was joined by hubby Jesse James.

One person who never doubted that Sandy would take home a statue? Her former costar Ryan Reynolds.

"Nope!" he answered, when I asked if he was surprised by her win.

More boldfaced names at the A-list bash include Oprah, Rachel McAdams, Quentin Tarantino, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Neil Patrick Harris.
