"Kate Winslet — still teary-eyed and emotional — told friends and well-wishers, "All I need right now is one good nap." She frequently took mini kitten naps as she held court on a couch in a back area — periodically resting her head on her dad's and husband Sam Mendes' shoulders.

Most awkward moment? Ryan Phillippe and girlfriend Abbe Cornish walking — or shall we say sprinting — right past Ryan's ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, and her current love, Jake Gyllenhaal. No, neither couple stopped to exchange pleasantries. Ouch. This must make child visitation really fun.

Writer Fran Lebowitz, a VF party regular — her feet sprawled on the ottoman — sat on a sofa with her pal Mick Jagger and his posse. Nearby were Dylan McDermott and Tilda Swinton — doing their own thing on the same long couch.

Funniest moment? Mick struggling to carry four champagne glasses while walking back to the couch, then handing him to his longtime gal pal L’Wren Scott and their friends. Then he belted out "Happy Birthday" to a pal while Fran, Dylan and Tilda completely ignored a rock legend singing the Happy Birthday song.

Only in super-jaded Hollywood. Or maybe he sings it every year. Maybe it's like Mick's annual "lampshade on the head" VF party moment.

Oscar winner Sean Penn was being unusually gracious. But he seemed more proud of his son — and introducing him to his pals — than his gold Oscar statue. When Penn was asked what was in his future, he replied, "Speaking out — never stopping."

Did we mention that Penn's pal Mickey Rourke was there to congratulate him on his Oscar win? And Rourke was wearing a cowboy hat. As if he didn't already stand out like a sore thumb.Romantic moments: Jennifer Aniston was glued to boyfriend John Mayer all night".
