It’s Oscar time! The 84th Annual Academy awards are airing on Sunday at 7 p.m. If you’re like me, you’re mostly interested in the Best Picture category. Here are this year’s nominees:
• The Artist
• The Descendants
• Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
• The Help
• Midnight in Paris
• The Tree of Life
• War Horse
Watching the celebrities take the red carpet is always a fun, but it’s even more so when you’re attending or even hosting an Oscar party. Here are a few ideas to make your Oscar party great:
• Serve food that goes with the theme of your favorite movie. (Hawaiian food for the Descendants, Southern Food for The Help, Parisian food for Midnight in Paris, etc.)
• Serve popcorn and candy out of movie theater style cartons.
• Have your guests show up in full Black Tie attire. Put a red blanket or sheet on your walkway so all your guests will be able to walk the red carpet.
• Decorate your house with film inspired memorabilia.
• Have a contest to see who can pick the most winning movies.
What’s your pick for Best Picture? Let us know in the comments! I’ve only seen one of the movies (The Help) but I have a feeling The Artist is going to be a big winner on Sunday night.
