The Oscar contenders this year have stiff competition! With critically acclaimed movies in every corner, from The Descendents to The Help, the academy have definitely had to make some tough decisions. However, for all of you enjoying the show at home, what to eat can be a no-brainer! These awesome "Best Picture" inspired foods are a great start to any Oscar party, and regardless of which ones you're rooting for, everyone is a winner if these dishes are on the menu.

The Artist

This sophisticated silent film takes place in stylish 1920s Hollywood. What better way to cheer on this modern throwback to a classic age than with an updated Old-Fashioned cocktail?

  The Descendents

While George Clooney being cuck-holded seems an entirely unrealistic premise on the outset, this critically-beloved Hawaii-based film has a great chance of taking home the prize. Cheer it on with Hawaiian ahi tuna poke tostadas!

  The Help

If you've seen "The Help," you'll know there's all kinds of delicious food that gets passed around - but it's obvious that Minny's infamous chocolate pie steals the show. Make your own bite-sized chocolate pies today!

This beautiful film follows the adventures of a brilliant young boy with a deep-seated love for true art. An old-fashioned, simple, yet layered and complex French classic like homemade croissants is the perfect complement to such a film.

  Midnight in Paris

This magical, fun, light story takes place before the lush backdrop of Paris at night. With a script that is an absolute delight to any liberal arts major, what's more appropriate than serving up one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite drinks: the daiquiri?
