Have you heard? The 88th Academy Awards are this Sunday. And since we don't have to squeeze into a size-2 haute couture gown by Dior, we'll be stuffing our faces and armchair quarterbacking the E! red carpet, thank you very much. What will we be eating? That would be several of these recipes based on this year's nominees, with names so punny they've just got to be scrawled on cute little buffet cards.
