It was a sea of golden statuettes at the annual Governors Ball -- the first stop of the night filled with parties for the newly crowned winners of the 86th Annual Academy Awards. The likes of Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o -- still Oscar-high after their wins. SOUNDBITE: Lupita Nyong'o, Winner of Oscar For Best Supporting Actress for "12 Years A Slave," Saying (English) "It makes me feel very good, it makes me feel good that we have been recognized in this way and this means that this story is going to go further and further." For most, this is the first stop at the party, a desk where they can get their names engraved on their trophies. Chris Monroe, who won his for the sound editing work of "Gravity" recalls the time he failed to do so. SOUNDBITE: Chris Monroe, Oscar Winner For "Gravity" saying (English) "They actually sent you the plaque later and they said you have to drill two holes in it and screw the plaque on. I never ever did that, so I have an Oscar without a plaque on at home and a separate plaque because I just wasn't brave enough to drill those holes." Everybody here left a mark in film history today, and hopefully they left with their Oscars marked to reflect the occasion.
