Entertain your Oscar party guests this year with movie themed cocktails, popcorn, and a make your own photobooth with decor! Following a tradition of mine for the Oscars every year, I’ve created cocktails inspired by the best picture nominees to fit the themes and tone of each movie, as well as internationally-flavored popcorn based on the foreign-language film nominees.

“Dallas Buyers Club” – Buck Shot with a Bud Chaser
“Her” – Artificial OS Ice
“American Hustle” – Con-tail
“Captain Phillips” – Alabama Tuk Kolok
“Wolf of Wall Street” – Stock Broker
“Gravity” – Anti-Gravity Ice Sphere
Make internationally-flavored popcorn as an added party treat for your guests. Click on the links below for my recipes based on the Foreign Language Nominees:

Create your own red carpet decor that doubles as a photo booth. For your backdrop, mimic the red carpet by draping red fabric over a wall. Bring the celebrity style of the red carpet to your party and make your own glamorous props. Accessories such as a bow tie, top hat and oversized jewels will have all your guests feeling red carpet-ready! Add store bought props like top hats and boas.
