Today, the creative team who will be responsible for organizing this year’s Governors Ball, the Academy’s official post-Oscar celebration, was announced. Academy governor Jeffrey Kurland, event producer Cheryl Cecchetto and master chef Wolfgang Puck are all returning to make this year’s event memorable for the 1,500 invited guests including Oscar winners, nominees and show presenters.
Kurland will oversee the décor, menu and entertainment planning while Cecchetto, with her team from Sequoia Productions, will focus on the event details from personnel to interior design. With the theme of transcendent wonder of nature, the Governors Ball décor will include vertical gardens designed with classic, elegant lines.
Puck and chef Matt Bencivenga will develop the menu featuring more than 50 dishes including the signature smoked salmon Oscars. This is Puck’s 20th consecutive year creating the menu for the event.
