Oscar 2012....what movie tie-in foods would you make?

I'm looking for dishes related to the best picture or best actor/actress nominees. It's been a rough couple of weeks, but I'm going to be back in the kitchen and Im looking forward to having some fun, tasty dishes!

Clarification...from the 2012 nominees! I'll save the "big night" dish for another occasion!

Here are my first thoughts:

The Artist--something from the silent movie/golden age of Hollywood
The Descendants- a pineapple or one of gingerroots' fab recipes from Hawaii
Extremely Loud...a taste of NYC
The Help--do I dare do a chocolate pie?
Midnight in Paris--crepes as a homage to Montmatre? A writers' libation?
Moneyball--thinking a variation of Tom's popcorn
War Horse--my Yorkshire puddings with rare roast beef?
Tree of Life and Hugo are the 2 films I haven't seen yet...

The chocolate pie would be CLASSIC!! Go for it. but you have to eat something savory.

Just remembered that a colleague of mine did the food styling for "The Help!" Depends upon how fancy you want the food to be, but soul food is hearty, tasty and do ahead... like beans and rice and collard greens. Or are you wanting to represent more than one movie?

Savory, yes...I was thinking one of ginger roots fab Hawaiian steamed pork buns?

Tree of Life, meatloaf and gravy, pot roast (Americana) and Hugo, treacle tarts, eel pie, or something that you could get in a train station in England in the 1930s.

@cristinasciarra Touche, but they all speak with English accents. My mistake.

Indeed they do. And now I would like to try a treacle tart!

While not for the current crop of films; How about nice MLT: a mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky, I love that.
