the ever-so-swanky Governors Ball on Oscar night, the Eastwoods took up the hottest position in what is a huge ballroom, with Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw and Francis Ford Coppola.
The Oscar cast’s writer Bruce Vilanch proudly told me after the show, “The three directors —Spielberg, Coppola, George Lucas — got real laughs.”
Coppola, who’d been nervous on the red carpet, admitted he had good comic timing after all!
Dina Eastwood raised a champagne glass at the Governors Ball.
“I’m not bitter,” she said. “But winning is better!” Everyone laughed.
Spielberg, who produced Clint’s extraordinary “Letters From Iwo Jima,” was effusive in his praise for his friend.
“No one ever tried to do anything like it before, to make the two movies [the other, 'Flags of Our Fathers'] about the same issue, and to tell the story from the Japanese side,” Spielberg said.
Spielberg, by the way, tells me that production on “Indiana Jones 4” begins June 18.

Indiana Jones 4 to start shooting this summer
The movie, to be directed by Steven Spielberg, is a long time overdue. I've been waiting a long time for this film and I hope that both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are wise and have another Star Wars alumnus cast...Natalie Portman as the daughter of Indiana Jones 4. I can wish. Her name has been rumored to be a part for some time. Spielberg has confirmed that the movie will shoot this summer.
