Oscar Dogs!

Knowing the Oscar's are just around the corner, I wanted to do an Oscar-themed post. But what to do? Plenty has been posted already in the food-blogosphere in terms of Oscar-themed menus, movie themed cookies and Oscar cocktails (or is that Oscartails?). It's Hollywoods biggest night, and with plenty of glamour goes plenty of good food. But I wanted to do something different.

What was I to do?

Well, to give you an idea of my thought process for the post, take a look at this flow chart:

Let me present: The Oscar Dogs - a different themed hot dog for each film nominated for best picture - there are nine in all! Take a look, then in the comments below VOTE for which "dog" you want to win the Oscar Dog!

1. The Descendants: "The Hawaii Dog"
Hot Dog, Grilled Pineapple and Sriracha on a Bun

2. The Help: "The Southern Comfort Dog"

Fried Chicken Sausage, Collard Greens, Gravy on a Buttered Bun

3. Midnight in Paris: "The Parisian Dog"

Pâté, Pork Sausage, Frisée, Creamy Dijon Vinaigrette on Baguette

4. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: "The NYC Dog"
Hot Dog with Mustard and Sauerkraut on a Bun

5. Hugo: "The Watch-Dog" 

Hot dog wrist band with clock face of toasted bread, mayonnaise, rosemary ticks and ketchup arms.

6. Moneyball: "The Baseball Dog" 
Hot Dog with Ketchup on a Bun

7. The Artist: "The Old-Time Hollywood Dog" 

A Black and White Hot Dog

8. War Horse: "The Bruised and Bleeding Dog"

Scored Hot Dog Bleeding Ketchup on a Bun

9. Tree of Life: "Tree in Summer Dog"
Hot Dog Tree of Spinach on a Bun with Mayonnaise

Be sure to VOTE for the "dog" you want to win the Oscar Dog!

  1. These are all far too brilliant. But let's be honest, you had me at the pun. (Watch-dog).

    This might be my favorite post you've ever done.

  2. TREE OF LIFE FTW!!!!!!

  3. I laughed hardest at The Artist, and the Watch-dog is the most adorable, but the Hawaii Dog looks the most like I want it in my mouth right now.

  4. pineapples make everything better.

  7. Choose the acclimatized rolex replica style. There are a lot of styles to acquire from if it comes to cowgirl boots, but western boots abandoned acquire two types – the adequate and accomplishment boots. Adequate boots are bogus to be chanel replica anatomic and they are created with archetypal design. While accomplishment boots are beside in style, like acclaimed artisan chafe in their louis vuitton replica all-overs nowadays such as the "old gringo boots".

  8. You see, my big sister never married and doesn't have any children. She's a very beautiful, independent woman who is absolutely crazy about her dog. Other members of the family roll their eyes when she brings a discussion around to Oscar and his latest antics. I don't. I know how much that dog means to her.
