Despite the writer's strike, they're still planning the Governor's Ball which will follow the Academy Awards, no matter what form it takes.A team of chefs are preparing lavish dishes for the party. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has this year's show stopper -- macaroni and cheese smothered in black truffles.

"Who would have thought we are going to serve for the Oscars macaroni and cheese? We make it, refine it with a little black truffles," said Puck. "It's going to be delicious."

Mark's Garden designed lush centerpieces with the theme of Oscar gold and red carpet red. There will even be special wine.

Fifteen-hundred guests are expected.
