    This year the nominees provide lots of great ideas.

    I'm thinking of three:
    -a Southern theme (yum; will have to perfect chicken frying skills) to go with The Help. Of course I could have CHOCOLATE PIE.
    -a French theme to go with Midnight in Paris, Hugo, and the lead in The Artist
    -a fun baseball theme (mini hotdogs, beer, popcorn) to go with Moneyball.

    But I'm looking for suggestions...

    I suppose I could have a few sandwiches, and coffee, for "Dragon Tattoo," because that's all they ever eat, three meals a day. I'll skip the fastfood pizza Lisbeth is so fond of.

    That was my first thought. And as your guests go to serve themselves a slice you can stand there grinning ... and guarantee you'd have lots of leftovers! :D

    You could also have haystacks and oat cakes (War Horse), and something with fishies (Puss in Boots).

    For The Descendents, the possibilities for party food are great - pupus, sweet and sour meatballs (with pineapple), pina coladas, etc.

    For the French theme, good mini quiches are often available frozen for an easy option. There are also a lot of good sparkling wines to make cocktails with nowadays - even French ones, but at a fraction of the cost of Champagne.

    The Help is the best one though - southerners are expert at party foods!
