Matt's doing a Oscars post, so it seemed as though I should too.

We're doing an Oscars party tonight, you see. This is my first year of actually paying attention to the Academy Awards. I find it very strange to note that I've seen all the Best Picture, Supporting Actor/Actress, Best Actor/Actress, Animated Feature, Art Direction, Cinematography, Directing, Film Editing, Original Score, Sound mixing, and Adapted and Original Screenplays nominations.

Drinks
The Social Network -- Appletinis

Appetizers
The Fighter -- Beef Tartare
Winter's Bone -- Winter Salad (flowering kale, apple, endive lettuce, orange vinagrette, croutons)

Entrees
Black Swan -- Slow-cooked turkey breast with sage, onion, and thyme, with a duo of sauces: black mole and cinnamon-nutmeg bechamel.
The King's Speech -- Crown pork roast with stuffing

Sides
True Grit -- Smashed red potatoes with red-eye gravy
127 Hours -- Squash! (scalloped butternut squash)
The Kids Are All Right -- Artichokes, with garlic and lemon

Desserts
Toy Story 3 -- Cupcakes of some variety. Heather's making these, and they're a secret. There will apparently be some sort of Maple buttercream involved. I'm excited.
Inception -- Parfaits! (layers, you know.) Espresso-soaked ladyfingers, chocolate-kahlua curd, more ladyfingers, orange curd, more ladyfingers, whipped cream.

And now, without further ado, my picks for the Oscars:
