BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Master chef Wolfgang Puck was tapped Thursday for his 12th consecutive stint as head of the gala dinner for the Oscars' Governors Ball.

"The Governors Ball is the Super Bowl of Hollywood events," Puck said in a news release. "We will create an innovative menu; a culinary interpretation of the evening's theme.
