Oscar the Grouch

I don’t really care about the Oscars.  The best picture nominees are usually movies I have never seen (except for the year Inception was a nominee, I LOVE that movie), nor do I have any desire TO see.  If it were up to me flicks like Wedding Crashers would be up for best picture, not films (based on musicals based on books) featuring Anne Hathaway with a bad haircut and a snotty nose.

In addition to my general non-interest in the nominated movies, by this time of year I have this huge sense of deja vu when it comes to these things.

Golden Globes nominees for best picture: Lincoln, Les Miserables, Django Unchained, Argo, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty.

See where I’m going here?  There are a few different movies or actors sprinkled in here and there but mostly – Been there, done that!  I’ll probably end up watching anyway because Revenge won’t be on and I do enjoy the fashion a bit, but I will most definitely NOT be throwing an Oscar Party.

HOWEVER – I have seen quite a few cool Oscar Party food ideas the past few days, and I thought I’d be nice and share a few… If I were going to throw a shindig, I would totally serve up some Tuxedo Hot Dogs!

There would be Oscar statuette cookies…

and of course, cocktails.  Check out this article from Good Morning America featuring a specialty cocktail for each of the Best Picture nominees.

Are you throwing an Oscar Party?  What are you serving?  It’s not too late to put bow ties on some hot dogs…
