So far all I’ve thought of is jambalaya and green chile cornbread. Other thoughts?
I suppose veal (or chicken) Oscar would be the appropriate dish.
That said, it sounds vile to me coming as it does with the meat topped with crab and bearnaise. I reckon that manages to ruin three lovely ingredients simply by putting them together.
I had Veal Oscar at San Diego’s Coronado Hotel dining room (Prince of Wales Room?) when I was in high school. I think I ordered it because it seemed unusual, but it was icky!
How about Indian food–particularly jalebis–in honor of “Lion.” It was the protagonist’s encounter with Indian food at a party in Australia when he was a young adult that stirred memories of his Indian childhood and led him to search for his family.
Or fondue in honor of “La-La Land”–a truly cheesy movie. 14 noms? Really?
Some Persian food or tea, toast and sardines for “A Man Called Ove.”
Oooh . . . How could I forget? Potato Salad for “Florence Foster Jenkins!” Bathtubs full of it
Since it’s only two days from Mardi Gras, I’m doing New Orleans. I just made dirty rice and gumbo, tomorrow will be jumbalaya and corn bread. Hurricanes are on the menu too!
Probably Chile Colorado . I won’t be watching much of it . But I’ll bet my Oscar Myer wiener with mustard and onions , maybe with a sliced pickle for lunch . That LA LA Land takes best picture .
That movie was awesome.
Wasn’t it? That and “Lion” were by far my two favorite movies of the year. I’m so disappointed FFJ isn’t getting more Oscar love. I thought Helberg and Grant were both supporting actor worthy.
I think part of the problem was that some media (i.e., my local Philadelphia Inquirer) wrote it up as a sort of slapstick musical comedy
Well… let’s not forget that The Martian was nominated for the comedy category
I’ve not seen any of the nominees (my bad) and couldn’t watch last night due to work. I missed allllll the awards shows this year, which is a bummer – I used to host red carpet events with my gal pals so we could take apart everyone’s gowns… maybe next year
Nocturnal Animals, not nominated but what a great movie highly recommend !!!
Well that’s not exactly true, best supporting actor nomination.
I didn’t see “The Martian,” but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a comedy. Are the critics watching the same movies we are?
Many years I haven’t seen any of the nominated movies, and I rarely watch the award shows. Somehow this year I saw four or five nominees, and I hope to see “Fences” next weekend. Either the critics are skewing more “artsy” or I’m skewing more mainstream?
ETA: I only pay for movies at my local non-profit that happens to be half-way between my city friends and my suburban friends
Starting in my local non-profit theater this Friday. Definitely on my list.
