What to Eat With Each Academy Award Best Picture Nominee: The 2nd Annual Edition

cotton-candy-262.jpgThe Oscars are less than a week a way, and most people have already weighed in on their top choice for the year. So now it’s time to match your top choice with the perfect Oscar Entrée.

1. The Artist (Michel Hazanvicius) has been taking people’s breaths away—and voices. To match the brilliant silent picture, how about some cotton candy, which is a bit old school, light and full of air—the perfect, tasty, silent addition.

2. Join War Horse’s (Steven Spielberg) horse and feel free to treat yourself to a bowl of uncooked spaghetti, so you can join the main character (the horse), as he gnaws on straw.

4. Laugh along with Minny (Octavia Spencer) in The Help (Tate Taylor), and indulge in double chocolate pie—leaving her SECRET ingredient out. Please. And thank you.

5. Hold a luau for The Descendants (Alexander Payne) and grill up a feast of mahi-mahi, followed by several helpings of ice cream.

7. Be a New Yorker and gobble up a handful of street meat. You’ll need the energy and protein to be strong enough to withhold the tears through a young boy’s journey in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Stephen Daldry).

8. Bonjour. Throw on a Cole Porter record, change your screensaver to Starry Night, and enjoy your own Midnight in Paris (Woody Allen) with a glass of wine, a serving of rabbit, and a plate of Alice B Toklas’s brownies.

9. Go green with The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick), and get acquainted with the natural world. Enjoy a cricket, ant, or worm. Go with savory bacon-flavored for dinner, and chocolate-covered for dessert. Sounds nearly as good (cough) as the movie.

Great. This saves me from making my own shopping list! Off I go grocery shopping (and apparently a petland for the insects too)
