Amazing food, great decor and remembering Hollywood greats.
On Wednesday morning, HipHollywood got a sneak peek inside the Governor’s Ball, the official post-Osar celebration at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Los Angeles. From incredible floral arrangements to spectacular center pieces, the room will be filled with photos of actors, timeless moments and glamour that has defined Hollywood.
“Your love of cinema should come alive when you walk into this room,” the Academy’s governor, Jeffrey Kurland told us. “When you walk into this room, you should be in awe of the people, the images that are engulfing you.”
The Academy was heavily criticized for the lack of diversity in this year’s nominees, however, the Governor’s Ball will be paying tribute to some of the greats, including Hattie McDaniel, Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poitier.
“What we did was we said ‘lets look at all the talent.’ How can you not acknowledge Hattie McDaniel. There’s just no way. She’s so talented,” the event’s producer, Cheryl Cecchetto told us. “I think it’s important that all people are acknowledged. No matter what your race or your age or your whatever. I think that talent is talent in the film business and that’s how I think we all look at it.”
Following the awards ceremony, 1500 guests, including winners and nominees, will make their way into the ballroom where they will also enjoy a delicious menu provided by world renowned chef, Wolfgang Puck. “We are going to have 32 different dishes, from modern dishes to very traditional dishes,” Wolfgang said. “Some people always want our chicken pot pie or our mini kobe burger.”
Which we had a chance to try and all we can say is … heavenly!
