I need some help with this year’s Oscar Dinner

Every year, The Movie Gourmet watches the Oscars while enjoying a meal inspired by the Best Picture nominees.  For example, last year’s highlight was Grandma Ethel’s Brisket for A Serious Man. We also had airplane bottles of liquor for Up in the Air, fastfood chicken for Precious and Middle Eastern fare for The Hurt Locker.  I particularly relished having prawns for District 9; (“prawn” is the South African slur for the aliens).  You get the idea and you can read more at Oscar Dinner.

But this year, the elements of my Oscar Dinner are not so obvious (despite being a great year for movie Food Porn). Now, I do know what I’m going to serve for True Grit, Black Swan, Toy Story 3, Inception, The Social Network and The Kids Are All Right.

But I’m stumped on 127 Hours The King’s Speech and The Fighter.  I need to find food and/or beverages found in these movies or inspired by the movies (typical of the movie’s setting, a pun on the movie, etc.)  Any ideas?  I welcome your suggestions.

    In 127 Hours all he had was freeze dried food and granola bars. He also left that bottle of gatorade in his car. Maybe do something with that? It’s a clever idea.

    I just posted on 127 Hours here: http://imagemoved.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/oscar-talk-127-hours/

    127 Hours: Ginger ale, pineapple, white grape, and cranberry juice punch with an ice hand floating inside (pour water in a latex glove and freeze, remove glove and place in punch) — A bit gruesome but funny too, right? …right..? lol

    The King’s Speech: English toffees. 1) They’re English 2) Their stickiness renders you temporarily incapable of speech. Get it? Eh, eh? 😀 Or some other kind of decadent dessert that will leave you “speechless”. Or just look up traditional English dishes. http://www.britainexpress.com/articles/Food/

    The Fighter: Boneless Buffalo Wings — They’re manly and something you’d eat while watching a boxing match…and their flavor is a real “knockout”. Best recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Boneless-Buffalo-Wings/Detail.aspx
