Looks like this year's Oscar's after-party will be a buffet, instead of a sit-down meal; Wolfgang Puck is reportedly creating a 50-dish buffet for all the A-list stars on Sunday.

"We're going to have comfort food like macaroni and cheese, chicken potpie, braised short ribs with Parmesan polenta," Puck said.

Reuters also reports that right after the Oscars are handed out, the 1,500 guests will chow down on 1,450 pounds of Maine lobster while sipping up to 1,000 bottles of Moet and Chandon champagne, amidst hanging Swarovski crystals and red floral centerpieces.

Just like the Golden Globes, there's also edible gold involved, with 25 pounds of edible gold dust ordered for the main event (not to mention 6,000 mini brioche buns and 5 kilos of farm-raised caviar). It's just too bad Uggie won't be there.
