When I think of the Oscars, I think of glitz and glamour. All these stars took us on a journey with them through their characters, and now we celebrate their artistry in this huge Hollywood event that's worthy of a night with your friends and some delicious viewing party food. You can invite your friends over for a fancy night of hors d'oeuvres, or you can take it easy and chill out on your couch with some snacks. Either way, these Oscar party foods are sure to make you embody your inner star!

Each of these foods are inspired by the nominations (it's the 90th Academy Awards, go big or go home, am I right?). 

Call Me By Your Name - Personal Peach Cobblers

Not going somewhere with their whole peach storyline would've been a missed opportunity and everyone knows it. This movie was truly a work of art (and so was the soundtrack, highly recommend), and I can't say much more about it than that. It's elegant and classy, just like these cute personal peach cobblers. They're easy to make and hard not to love.

Lady Bird - Turkey Brie Cranberry Crescent

Another critically acclaimed coming-of-age story, Lady Bird definitely called my name when it opened in theaters. There are two ways to go about this dish; either follow the movie's own Thanksgiving recipes, or if you're still satisfied from your own Thanksgiving meal (definitely can't blame you), you can play off of the "bird" title with this turkey Brie and cranberry crescent braid.

Get Out - Soft Baked Froot Loop Cookies

This movie was insane, dark, and twisted, and I loved every minute of it. With so many secrets, it's truly a visionary piece, an exposé on racial problems. This recipe choice plays off one of the end scenes where (spoiler alert!) Rose eats her Froot Loops and milk separately, an artistic choice to symbolize her family's practice of never mixing nonwhite and white things. These cookies are gooey, sweet, and delicious, sure to please any crowd!

Dunkirk - Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Dunkirk was a mind shattering epic, depicting the Battle at Dunkirk in a bold and powerful way. I have never seen a war movie quite like this one, where the director and cast take you real time into such an important time in history. This recipe looks amazing and is rather easy for what you're getting out of it. Trust me, it's sure to satisfy the troops. All in honor of the movie's setting, the beaches of Dunkirk, France. C’est délicieux!

The Shape of Water - Frittata

I've heard nothing but beautiful things about this movie. The heart that's captured in this movie seems like it has everyone on pause out of sheer awe. The unconventional leading man and woman steal the show with their undeniable connection, and now it's time for you to make those connections over an easy, customizable, and delicious frittata. It's the perfect addition to any assortment of Oscar party food.

Coco - Spicy Quesadilla

I can honestly say that this movie left me beyond impressed. It was heartfelt and sweet, lowkey melted my heart. Centered around a boy named Miguel and his dream of pursuing music, the audience is taken on this colorful ride through the Land of the Dead to find the truth about his family's interesting lineage. To honor the premise—Dia de los MuertosI find the most fitting food to be chicken quesadillas. They're easy to whip up for parties and a lot less messy than chips and dip. 

Ferdinand - Garlic Butter Shrimp

In one word, I'd describe this movie as happy. The message of not settling for just doing what's expected of you is a strong one, worthy of Hollywood's spotlight. I figured I could be sadistic and find a meat/bull-heavy recipe, but I think that would've been crossing the line, so I instead drew inspiration from the Spanish countryside shown in this movie. Garlic shrimp is a very popular Spanish appetizer that's sure to make you and your guests happy.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Princess Leia Oreo Truffles

Not many movies survive the test of time, but this now eight-part series has stayed incredibly relevant and has maintained a steadily growing fan base over the years. For Star Wars fans, this movie was more than just the plot line. Tt allowed fans to say goodbye to their favorite princess, played by the great Carrie Fisher. And now we continue honoring her with these adorable themed Oreo truffles. 

The Greatest Showman - Caramel Apple Popcorn

Dipa Halder

Wow, was this movie the greatest. The storyline, the characters, the music, the creativity—everything about it was mesmerizing.  You're essentially taken through P.T. Barnum's life, seeing the behind-the-scenes bumps of showbiz. If this movie leaves you feeling any which way, it should be inspired. Barnum never doubted the world was at his fingertips, and to celebrate the first circus, we're going to introduce into the wide Oscar party food selection some fun popcorn. 

Beauty and the Beast - Be Our Guest Food

Disney's done it again with this live action remake of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I may be biased (growing up, Belle was my favorite Disney princess), but I think this movie really outdid itself, especially with the "Be Our Guest" scene. Go the extra mile by taking advantage of the possibilities, make Mrs. Potts proud!

Baby Driver - Homemade Pizza

One of my absolute favorite movies, Edgar Wright did it again. This action crime film utilized music as an integral part of the storytelling; Baby's personal soundtrack is the movie's soundtrack. There's really no movie that compares to it, in my opinion. As we follow Baby's story, he makes a stop at Goodfellas Pizza, which freaked me out because I live five minutes from there, so this movie's food item will be homemade pizza. It takes less time than delivery (unless Baby's your driver).

I, Tonya - Mini Crescent Dogs

Margot Robbie is undoubtedly one of the greatest actresses of our time. The way she transforms from character to character,  shows nothing is out of her capabilities. I really enjoyed how this movie was produced, in a very Goodfellas-esque manner with the interviews and inside scoop. This movie takes risks to explore the controversy around figure skater Tonya Harding, and I'm taking a risk with this classic ice rink food because I don't think she would be caught dead eating these (or at least her mother would never approve).

The Oscars are a very stressful time, so hopefully you and your friends will have enough Oscar party food to make it through the decisions and come out as winners.
