George Clooney is reportedly planning his own post-Oscar party and it just might be the hottest ticket in Tinseltown.

The man who is tipped to win the Best Actor Oscar for The Descendants is apparently going rogue with his own bash, a party for his closest friends including fellow Best Actor nominee Brad Pitt (Moneyball) and Angelina Jolie.

Elsewhere the other top parties are the usual suspects with top of the bill being the prestigious Governor’s Ball. Renowned chef Wolfgang Puck has prepared the dinner menu for the party and his piece de resistance is likely to be Oscar-shaped chocolates dusted with real gold flakes. There will be 658kg of lobster and more than 1000 bottles of Moet & Chandon have been put on ice for the expected 1500 guests.

In addition to high-end ingredients such as lobster and black truffle, Puck's 50-strong hors d'oeuvres menu will feature home-style comfort food such as macaroni and cheese and braised short ribs.

The other hot party of the night is the Vanity Fair celebration, where more than 800 famous In-N-Out burgers have been ordered for the 500-odd guests.
