Hosting Your Own Oscars Party.

As film buffs get ready for Hollywood’s Very Big Night, Hollywood wants to know how film buffs will be spending their very big night.

The Guardian reports:

This year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and TV network ABC, which broadcasts the ceremony, are extending the invite to the general public. Not just extending: actively pushing. With one eye on the increasingly swollen figures commanded for advert spots during the Super Bowl – as well as diminished viewing figures for last year’s ceremony – folks at home are being encouraged to look at Oscar Sunday as they do Super Bowl Sunday: a whole day of fun and food focused around a watercooler TV event.

This year, the extensive menu of themed canapes being cooked up for 1,600 A-listers by Austrian chef Wolfgang Puck, isn’t just being detailed online; recipes are shared, too. The public isn’t asked merely to gawp at Puck’s signature dish of a statuette-shaped smoked salmon flatbread with chive garnish and a dollop of caviar, but to recreate it for their ownOscars do. A photo shows the fishy nibbles under construction, complete with enormous pipette bag of cream cheese “glue”.

How are you spending Oscar night? My wife and I will be watching tonight on the couch, with maybe a plate of snacks and a couple of beers between us. Leave thoughts on your plans in the comments section.
