Looking for food for an Oscar themed party? We looked to the nine best picture nominees for culinary inspiration.

A lot of prep work goes into an Oscar party: You have to watch the Best Picture front runners, pick out what you’re going to wear, print out ballots, decorate, chill the champagne, etc. And unlike the Super Bowl, food for an Oscar themed party seems to be a last thought (much like the shorts and editing categories). This year, however, the slate of incredible films up for the big prize all had memorable food aspects to them, making it a little easier for us to brainstorm Oscar party food ideas. Here, our favorite film-inspired appetizers and desserts to munch on during the ceremony, recipes included. Just remember to thank us in your acceptance speech when your guests give you a standing ovation.
