7 Recipes Inspired by the 2020 Academy Award Nominees

The 92nd Academy Awards are tomorrow! That means its Oscar Party time! We thought it would be fun to round up and share some of our recipes inspired by the nominees. We’ve also listed what awards each film was nominated for.

How the Academy Awards Work

Before we get to the recipes, we thought it would be cool to explain how the Academy Awards get selected. Academy members from each of the 17 branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. In the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominees are selected by a vote of multi-branch screening committees. All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees.
