I'm starting this now because I had a blast year helping some friend design an Oscar themed party and Chowhound had such great sources.
Anyone want to take a stab at it? What would you serve at a dinner/viewing party for the Oscars this year. Food should be Oscar themed, or Oscar nominated movies (2012) Theme.
Insight on those that have seen the movies would be great, but you don't have to, to make a theme food. Such as Midnight in Paris might be the perfect time to whip up some mini-eclairs with a dark chocolate sauce. Or Money Ball might be great to do a Cheese Ball with "bats" Bread and or pretzel sticks.
There are two movies up for noms that have gross food themes. Would party goers be grossed out at a Help themed Chocolate Pie or would you nix those ideas?
and what about drinks?
