Oscar viewing parties are a fun time to let your imagination run wild in the boredom of winter. You can throw a black-tie event with the requirement that all threads must come from Goodwill (those bridesmaid dresses stuffed in the back of your closest are perfect for this), hand out score cards to see who comes the closest to calling the most awards, pop some popcorn, and serve up tasty treats inspired by Oscar nominees.

Here to you help you throw the best party on the block are 10 Stir It Up! recipes closely tied (or as close as we could get) to the 10 Best Picture nominees.

The envelope, please!

The King's Speech
