WHILE Oscars viewers at home can only see an hour-long red carpet and three-hour ceremony, it’s an all-day affair for the celebrities in attendance.
At today’s awards afterparty, celebs will be greeted with an extravagant catered menu that includes smoked salmon, tuna, caviar and Brad Pitt’s newly launched Fleur de Miraval champagne.
As the awards show cameras roll in at 11:00 p.m. EST, celebrities such as Halle Berry, Jason Momoa, Rachel Zegler and Tyler Perry are about to start their evening.
The Governors Ball, the official celebrity afterparty of the Oscars, is hosted by the famous Austrian chef Wolfgang Puck.
Puck will be collaborating with a Bronx, New York, Ghetto Gastro culinary collective.
Founded in 2012, Ghetto Gastro describes itself as combining “the African diaspora, ingredients from the Global South and hip-hop to create offerings that explore race, identity and economic empowerment”.
“This is a unique collaboration that pushes boundaries and brings a new twist to the Oscars Governors Ball,” Oscars producer Will Packer told People.
“The Ghetto Gastro Collective, Wolfgang Puck and the Academy teams joined this cool alliance about bringing people together in a true celebration of film and food.”
Wolfgang Puck has been teasing the afterparty menu on his Instagram all week, posting videos of himself preparing the meal that has hundreds to serve.
Today, his Instagram Story gave viewers a first look at some of the courses he prepared, including a Spicy Tuna Tartare.
And of course, it’s only fitting that these top-notch meals are paired with some of the swankiest drinks the Oscars has to offer.
Stars will be sipping on Pitt’s new champagne, which was kept under wraps for five years before its October 2021 launch.
Only 22,000 bottles of the pink rose were made, and each costs around $400.
Celebs in attendance will also have the opportunity to enjoy a curated menu of specialty Tequila Don Julio cocktails and two styles of limited edition Francis Ford Coppola wines.
The dishes announced for today’s Governors Ball include:
- Smoked Salmon Oscars
- Spicy tuna cones
- Roots waffles with fried chicken
- Cornbread with shrimp and caviar
- Main Lobster Potpie
- Wagyu Meat Slider
- Cacio e Pepe macaroni and cheese
- Chocolate Sea Salt Oscar Eclairs
- Grapefruit Panna Cotta
- Smores macarons
- Chocolate Oscar
The Chocolate Oscars are a favorite every year as stars want a souvenir of the night they can’t go home with an actual gold statue.
“People like to take them home,” Wolfgang Puck told People.
“Now we wrap them up so they don’t melt in people’s jackets. A few people said 25 years ago, ‘I took the Oscar home and it melted in my pocket!’ Now let’s wrap it up so you have a little souvenir. Some people tell me, “I have mine from 10 years ago, I keep it in my freezer.” “
While we’re just stuck to catch a glimpse of the afterparty on celebs’ social media, you can catch the Oscars live on ABC on Sunday, March 27, starting at 8:00pm EDT/5:00pm PDT.
