Cheryl Cecchetto knows a thing or two about the way stars party – especially at the Oscars: She's planned the Governors Ball, the official Academy Awards afterparty, for the past 22 years.

Her secret to a good time? Comfort food and conversation starters.

"We served 3,000 Wolfgang Puck Kobe beef mini sliders at [last year's] Governors Ball," she says. "And nobody cares if they have a gown or a tux on. People are hungry, and they want easy comfort food."

Natalie Portman had to change her eating habits significantly to play a prima ballerina in Black Swan, but once filming ended, so did all the dieting.

"It was just pasta and bread and pizza all the time," Portman told PEOPLE of her post-Swan diet at the film's Tuesday premiere at New York's Ziegfeld Theatre.
