9 Dazzling Oscar Night Menus

We bow to the over-the-top fizzy silliness that is Oscar night by offering up not one but nine menus -- one for each Best Picture nominee -- for whatever festivities you have planned. Cherry-pick from the menus and simply serve whatever sounds good to you, or show loyalty to your pick for Best Picture by serving its respective menu. The recipes we've selected are meant to capture the mood of the films they represent rather than the exact foods eaten in the movie, but surely there are things we've left out. Tell us what you think and what you've got planned for the big night in the comments!

Cheers and Happy Red Carpet!
