COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
TWO OPINIONS ON MAPS TO THE STARS
Nathaniel's Julianne Spazzing & Glenn's Cronenberg Finger Wagging 

"There is a great movie in Maps of the Stars and that is the one Moore stars in, not the one the screenplay insists in bringing to the front." - Mr Goodbar

"If I had to guess why Cronenberg went with a largely "invisible" or even non-style style, I'd say it has to do with his approach to the narrative, which is kind of a bait and switch, setting us up for a hollywood satire and then giving us a final act that plays more like a myth or a fairy tale." -Roark

Curio: Oscar Sweets

Alexa here.  Even though I can't claim to have been eating steamed veggies and following the Tracy Andeson method for the last few months, I always use Oscar night as an excuse to indulge. I made these coconut shortbread Black Swan pops for our gathering this year.  (And yes, I appreciate the irony of indulging my sweet tooth by eating stick-thin prima ballerinas.)

I'm always curious what other Oscar goodies were served, so I've been trolling the internet.

More sweets after the jump

This cupcake mashup of The Social Network and Black Swan was cute...

...and apparently someone ate these 127 Hours severed arm cupcakes.

 

As always, Eleni's bakery in New York offered their Best Picture and acting nominee cookie sets.

 

But the girly-girl in me loves these Oscar gown cupcakes from Mon Petit Cupcake in Minnesota the most.  Perfect for a red (carpet) table runner.

i know. i could eat them all up. It's so obvious that BLACK SWAN would be the movie to inspire people at their parties. You know we'll have another round of BLACKSWANMANIA again come Halloween.
