Matt Damon was the guest of honor at last night's Made in NY Awards held at the mayor's residence, Gracie Mansion, in NYC. Matt picked up a prize from Mayor Bloomberg and the commissioner of NYC's Office of Film, Katherine Oliver, for his commitment to making movies in the Big Apple. Other notable residents of the city, like Real Housewives of New York stars Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and LuAnn de Lesseps turned out with Bravo mastermind Andy Cohen to toast Matt's achievement. Mayor Bloomberg made a quip about his brief, seven-second scene in The Adjustment Bureau before turning things over to Matt, who spoke about his four daughters and East Coast home base. Matt Damon said of his daughters Alexia, Isabella, Gia, and Stella, "I wish they were here tonight, but they are sleeping. . . . I'm just so proud to live here."
