Oscar Potluck--but the theme is wacked!

My boyfriend and I just got invited to an Oscar potluck where we need to bring a dish inspired by one of the Best Picture nominees.

Whaaaaa?! The good news is everyone else seems just as clueless as to what to bring, so the menu is wide open.

Okay, here is what we have:

Avatar (Did they eat anything in Avatar? Can't recall... maybe I can just make something big and blue)
The Blind Side (football food?)
District 9 (Alien/South African cuisine?)
Hurt Locker (one of those pre-made army pouches of food)
An Education (haven't seen it yet)
Inglourious Basterds (someone is already bringing strudel)
Precious (mac and cheese, chicken wings, pigs feet)
A Serious Man (haven't seen it yet)
Up (chocolate... definitely chocolate)
Up in the Air (airline food?)

I'm not doing such a good job thinking out of the box for this one, Chowhounds. Please help me get the creativity flowing! Thanks all!
