Oscar Loves Theater Stage Movies

 

"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

Curio: Oscar Food 2012

Alexa here. When my friend Mike found out that I would be making a pie in honor of this year's Oscars, he made some quick guesses as to the theme: 

  • Black and white for The Artist?
  • Pineapple coconut for The Descendants?
  • Ringling Bros clown cream pie for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close?
  • Humble Pie for The Help?
  • A Trip To The Moon cheesecake for Hugo?
  • French Silk pie for Midnight in Paris?
  • Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet for Moneyball?
  • Pi for The Tree of Life?
  • Cowpie for War Horse

I quickly wished I had the energy to make nine pies instead of just one. In that spirit, here are some great Oscar-themed goodies I've seen around the web, along with the pie I ended up with. Feel free to share your own menu cleverness in the comments.

Of all the Oscar recipe ideas I've seen, I thought these Oscar-themed dogs were best (but then again I'm from Chicago, where encased meat is king). From the top: The Help Southern fried chicken sausage dog, The Artist old-time Hollywood dog, Midnight in Paris Parisian Pâté dog, The Descendants Hawaii dog with grilled Pineapple and Sriracha, Hugo watch dog, War Horse bruised and bleeding dog, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close NYC dog with mustard and sauerkraut, The Tree of Life dog with spinach, and a simple ballpark dog for Moneyball.

Eleni's Bakery delivered yet again with their nominee cookies.

 


Finally, the pie I ended up with, complete with guarantee.

That pie looks incredibly yummy.

Speaking of pie, I'd like to bake the Minny's special pies and deliver them personally to all those voters who voted for Meryl Streep. They deserve the same pie that Hilly Holbrook ate.

All right, I'm letting it go now :)

That Parisian dog looks divine, and as long as that pie lives up to its name, I would take that do. Yummy.

This is one of my favorite posts each year. I love the plays on words that usually accompany the dishes and was trying to guess earlier this month what foods people might make for this year's nominees. Thanks for sharing!
