Win Your Oscar Party Potluck With These Academy Award Winning Food Puns
With the Oscars being mere days away, it’s time to start your preparations. Now, I’ve never won an Oscar ballot contest in my life. And frankly I couldn’t care less. No, I choose to focus my attentions elsewhere. Specifically, on puns.
So continuing with a Pajiba tradition, here they are, your official Oscar picks, based not at all on actual merit or likelihood of winning, but entirely on their food- based punibility. Which, I think we can all agree, is the more important criterion.
I’ve clearly only scratched the first layer of the dip here. Add your picks below, my fellow pun McConaugh-sseurs.
Winner: Dallas Pie-ers Club
Honorable Mentions: Gravitinis, Philly-mena Cheesesteaks (made with aged cheese, in honor of the great Dame)
Best Supporting Actor
Winner: Bradley Coop-cakes
Honorable Mentions: Peppermint Barkhad Abdilicious
Best Supporting Actress

And don’t forget your Melon DeGeneres. Every good host serves a fruit plate.
Vivian Kane will most definitely be spending Sunday making up an Oscars drinking game. Come play along here.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
