suggestions for academy awards dinner?

i'm planning my annual home-cooked academy awards dinner and i haven't seen that many movies yet and i'm not quite sure i'm satisfied yet.

i've been searching for other recipes, but none have stood out to me...

so far on my menu i have the following:

Asparagus custard tart in honor of sweeny todd, atonement
Rib-eye steak in honor of no country for old men
Mushroom risotto in honor of into the wild
individual fried apple pies in honor of juno

does anyone have any good british recipes that i could use to honor sweeney todd/or atonement? i'm not sure i am as excited about the asparagus tart.

does anyone have any good french side dishes, appetizers, or soups (not french onion, i did that before)? i was thinking of honoring ratatouille (sp?) without making ratatouile...

here's a link to the academy website with a list of nominations in case there's another cuisine or movie for creative inspiration...


the dinner is for about 10 people and i have less than a week to prepare (because it's next sunday and i want to shop ahead of time and do some advance prep).

thanks in advance!
