And the Oscar goes to . . .

It’s an annual thing – both the Academy Awards Ceremony and a gathering of the same friends. We wear big gaudy jewellery, mark ballots with our predictions, and always eat a themed meal based around titles of the films up for Best Picture.

Because one of our group doesn’t eat meat, the main course won’t be Steak Oscar, but rather, a variation I’m calling Fish Oscar.

Other items on the menu will be “I’m gonna toss him like a salad” Salad (thanks to Rocky the Ram in The Wrestler) and

Slumdog Samosas
The Strange Case-erole of Benjamin Barley with Button Mushrooms
The (Cookbook) Reader’s Vegie Mix
Frosty-Nixon Frozen Yogourt
Milk Chocolate Sauce for “Sunday” Dessert

The big question remaining? Who’ll predict the most winners and win this year’s pool?

  1. As it nearly always is, the winner was my pal, Janny. Amazingly, she got 17 out of 24 right.
