This year is no exception. I haven’t seen one movie up for Best Picture – not one! I’m thinking about either renting The Help or going to see The Artist at an old-fashioned theater (which I think will go just perfectly with an almost totally silent, old-fashioned film) this week so that I can at least be somewhat informed. Well, that and, I really want to see those movies!
What I love about the Academy Awards is that even if you haven’t seen all of the movies, it’s still fun to get a group together and watch all of the celebrities and the show itself.
One of the ways I like to do this is by making a few dishes inspired by the plots of the movies up for awards. It’s easy enough to look up what each movie is about, and then pick a few recipes that match the theme. That way, you also aren’t totally clueless when you’re watching!
So, I’ve gone ahead and selected a few of the nominated movies for Best Picture, and created a menu for each. Pick a dish from each, or make ‘em all if you want to celebrate your favorite movie.
