“Braised short ribs for dinner!!”

That was Hell’s Kitchen star Gordon Ramsay‘s tempting Tweet last night just before getting to work at Elton John’s annual World AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party, which raises money for HIV and AIDS organizations.

One thousand guests, including Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and the Kardashians, watched the Oscar action on big screens under a tent in West Hollywood Park and dug into the five-course meal that also included citrus-poached sea bass, portobello mushrooms with asparagus and sun dried tomatoes, tuna confit tartare, corn soup with fritters, frisée salad with mustard vinaigrette and Meyer lemon cake, according to the L.A. Daily News.

The culinary feast continued over at Madonna‘s annual Oscar after-party held at her manager Guy Oseary’s L.A. home, guests including Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett and Lupita Nyong’o, chowed down on a homestyle buffet of chicken and rice in a curry sauce, penne with red sauce and potato knishes.

With menus like these, every guest was a winner!
