9 Mouthwatering Recipes to Pair With This Year's Oscar-Nominated Films

The Oscars—a once-a-year event that compels people everywhere to dress up in their evening finest, roll out the red carpet, and watch stars trickle down to the Dolby Theatre. We stare at our small screens as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ceremoniously hands out awards to outstanding actors for their roles on the big screen—all the while noshing on champagne and popcorn. But what if we were to dream up the ultimate Oscar party dinner menu? 

We've binge-watched the films and cast our votes, but the biggest debate is still up in the air: What do we eat? This year, we're trading our classic TV-approved snacks and turning to our favorite food bloggers for menu inspiration. The result: a grandiose procession of delicious bites, all inspired by this year's nine Best Picture nominees. From a healthy L.A. cocktail influenced by La La Land to Arrival-inspired survival needs (chocolate popcorn), this is what you'll want to eat on the film industry's biggest night.
