Oscar Menu Time!!!

I actually forgot to watch the Oscar nominations this morning and am totally ashamed of myself.  I live for this stuff! I'm not terribly surprised with the noms but am disappointed on behalf of Bill Murray for Hyde Park on Hudson.  He was fantastic and I don't say this just because he's an (imaginary) ex of mine.

So now I need your help with menu items.  As in the past, the idea is to play on the title of the movie or a person's name.  For instance, someone like Javier Bardem becomes Caviar Bardem.  This year's list isn't an easy one so good luck to us all!
