While everyone is gushing about how amazing the Oscar ceremony was — so starry and grand — not many know about the snacks and food served there. Dude, that's the most important part, we say.
The three-hour-long gala ceremony concluded with a bang — no gaffes or mixing of envelopes this time around (thank God for that). The winners, and everyone else, are busy at the Governor's Ball, celebrating the night. But thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, the snacks scene at the 90th Academy Awards night was sorted. Because he got all the guests loads of stuff to chomp on during the show in the form of themed snackboxes.
The Oscars host left lunchboxes under every seat at the Dolby Theater. Each had a granola bar, candies, potato chips, mint and a note from Kimmel that read, "It wouldn’t be right to make you sit through this without snacks. Please don’t throw them at me. P.S. A donation to the L.A. Regional Food Bank was made for each box."
Wow! Commendable, right? But can we take a second to appreciate how cool the boxes look?
Attendees couldn't help but laud the gesture.
We don’t like it when people are hungry – so we provided lunchboxes with snacks for everyone at the #Oscars and included a donation to the @LAFoodBank for each one. https://t.co/Epp3SmGQAi #WeFeedLA @ThisBar #ThisBarSavesLives @WolfgangPuck @TheAcademy pic.twitter.com/x5LG0KbTk4— Jimmy Kimmel Live (@JimmyKimmelLive) March 5, 2018

I'm only at the #Oscars for the free food.— Dino-Ray Ramos (@DinoRay) March 5, 2018
Last year, too, Kimmel made cookies, doughnuts and candy rain (read parachute down the guests' way from the ceiling). And back in 2014, Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for all (yum!).
Well, that's not where the food story ends, folks. We even found out the menu at the Governor's Ball. Taking care of the menu, as always, is Wolfgang Puck and team. On the menu, we hear, are caviar parfait dusted with 24-carat gold, caramel passionfruit lollipops, famous chocolate Oscars (handmade by Wolfgang’s team and covered in 24-carat gold dust), lobster, truffles, and chef's signature dishes such as Wagyu beef sliders, pizzas and chicken pot pie, etc. And what are they drinking? Piper-Heidsieck's Cuvée Brut and Francis Ford Coppola wine.
Fancy doesn't even cover it.
