Oscar Party-for Real People

Now, I know that Wolfgang Puck is planning a mahvelous Oscar party menu, dahling. But I didn't get invited and besides, I don't have a thing to wear. I'm staying home and eating real-people food (read, junk) anyway. Want to come over? We're having more fun than Wolfie's guests anyway. The truth is we probably won't actually EAT many or even any of this things, but double doggone if we don't have a great time thinking of them. I bet you could even think of better ones. This year was tough, since they increased the number of movies nominated for best picture.

Here's my pick for the most appropriate cinematic Snacks:
The Blind Flip Side
Sailor thought of this one. Have you tried these yet? They're salty and yummy.
District 9 layer bean dip
I really might make this one. I've loved it since 1983-no lie. Thanks to whomever this pic belongs to. I got it off the internet.
A Serious Ginger Man
I worried that I'd only be able to find a smiling gingerbread man for the pic. These faceless cookies are perfectly serious, almost somber even.
Inglorious POP Tarts. I didn't really want to write a naughty word on my blog, but I think Pop Tart is a good stand in for a naughty word. Pop-Tart sounds more like a naughty word than a breakfast food, anyway. If you eat everyday, will you grow up to be a Pop-tart?
Precious Mozzarella
Way too easy.
Guavatar
Way too hard. This one's my biggest stretch. Can anyone out there think of a better food to go with Avatar? We sure couldn't. I hope that the Academy will consider that next year, and only choose movies that have easy snack tie-ins.
Seven UP
The Quiet Man's contribution.
Up in the Airheads
Phew! Two movies with the word Up. I didn't think we were going to make it. And speaking of UP-
Up next:
Chocolate Waffles-really, truly, cross my heart.

Cute! I did something similar on my candy website, only I took a few more liberties and used the subject of the movie as material, too. My favorite was Exploding Truffles (truffles w/ pop rocks) for The Hurt Locker. :) Here's the rest of the list:
