The Academy Awards are a time for celebration; celebration of great films and fashion. And while movie stars are looking to get that Oscar win, the rest of us are in it for what happens behind the scenes, whether it’s judging a star’s fashion sense, taking delight in the commentary or debating the winning choices.

Instead of enjoying these moments alone, gather a group of friends for double the fun. Any good celebration requires good company and good food. You supply the company and we’ve got you covered on the food.

Here are some Oscar-worthy recipes that will kick your night up a notch.
