The Oscars After-Party Bill Was More Expensive Than A Private Island

Leo-Chris

We all know that only the best will do for Hollywood’s heavyweights, evident in the fact the Oscars goodie bag came to a whopping $200,000. But what most don’t realise is that the costs continue to rise even after the awards ceremony comes to an end.

In fact, at Wolfgang Puck’s annual Governor’s Ball after-party, the food bill came to an astonishing $5 million. Which means you could personally purchase a private island for less than what the Oscars winners wined and dined on post-party.

Thrillist did some number-crunching to figure out the approximate food bill using average prices of items including on Puck’s ingredient list, and here’s what they found. *all prices in USD
