THE WINNERS' CIRCLE: With their Oscars as special guests, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg celebrated victory at Elton John's AIDS benefit at the Beverly Hills restaurant Maple Drive. Joining the late-night toast were, from left, Spielberg's wife, Kate Capshaw, Elton, Patti Scialfa, Hanks's sister-in-law Lily Reeves and wife Rita Wilson.

REVENGE OF THE VALKYRIE: Debbie Allen shed her Brünhilde breastplate to party at Georgia (the eatery co-owned by Denzel Washington). "It got too hot, and I was sweating."

BEST SUPPORTING MOM: Holly Hunter's mother, Marguerite, only had eyes for her girl.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, INVITE FAMILY: Split from ex-fiancé Bill MacDonald, Sharon Stone changed into a beaded flapper dress after the show and brought her brother Michael as her date.

TILL OUR NEXT FILM US DO PART: At last, Emma Thompson and hubby Kenneth Branagh did the Oscars together.

BEST KISS OF A VAMPIRE: When Tom Cruise smooched Nicole Kidman at Morton's, she didn't seem to mind the whiskers.

WELL, SHUT MY MOUTH AND PASS THE BUBBLY: Best Song nominee Dolly Parton couldn't control the Saint Bernards onstage, but she had George Hamilton on a tight leash during the bash at Morton's.

He didn't pick up an award, but Schindler's star Liam Neeson seemed content knowing he was No. 1 on fiancée Natasha Richardson's list.

FASHION BE DAMNED: Said Whoopi, with Elton: "I wasn't looking at nobody but me."
