The Academy Awards Governor’s Ball is the official post-Oscar celebration and is one of the hottest tickets in town on Oscar night. The Governor's Ball guests include Oscar winners and nominees, show presenters, and other telecast participants. Each year a creative team is hired to oversee every detail from the decor, menu, entertainment, and even the attire worn by the evening's staff. No expense is spared as each year's creative team tries to out-do the last. With The Governor's Ball often comes special invitations, gifts, and keepsakes that are extremely hard to come by and prized by Academy Award collectors.
