Academy Awards Themed Dinner 2013

Here we go again...
So far I'm thinking:
Silver Linings Playbook - Crabby Snacks and Homemades (anyone know what Homemades are?)
Beast of the Southern Wild - Jambalaya

Thanks! After some research I'm planning to go with:
The Artist – French Martini
Midnight in Paris – fruit, cheese and charcuterie platter
The Descendants – Crab Cakes
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close – New York Deli Style Ruebens and Pastrami Sandwiches
War Horse - Parsnip, Potato, and Turnip Puree
Moneyball – Hot Dogs
The Tree of Life – Homestyle Mac and Cheese
The Help – Minnie’s Chocolate Pie (minus her secret ingredient!)
Hugo – Petits Pains au Chocolat
As you can tell I'm trying to please a crowd of children and adults!

I throw an academy awards party each year with menu items inspired by the best picture nominees. This year I am having some difficulty finding good ideas. This was last year's menu:
The Kids Are All Right Heirloom Tomato Tart
The King’s Speech Strawberry Finger Sandwiches
Toy Story 3 Weenie Winks
True Grit Burgers and Baked Beans
The Fighter Budweiser Brats
Black Swan Black & White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Winter’s Bone Meringue Bones
the social network Facebook cookies
INCEPTION Mind Eraser (adult beverage)
127 HOURS BLOODY ARON’S
Get the picture - any ideas???
