Snacks for the Oscars are as important as the Academy Awards themselves. At least in the eyes of this food lover. And if you ask my husband, they’re possibly more important.

Brian is guest posting for me today, offering his commentary on the nominees for Best Picture, as well as his nominees for best snacks for the Oscars. After all, I think everyone will agree that television watching of any sort requires tasty munchies.
I’d like to publicly thank Brian for volunteering to create this post. His love for me and support of my business mean the world to me. Friends, my husband is a keeper. 🙂 Thank you so much, Honey… I love you!
Let’s talk snacks for the Oscars! #TheOscarsWhoCares
My wife, Becca, asked me if I’d like to write a little post for you, based on snacks and the Academy Awards show coming up tomorrow night. At first, I thought she was crazy and just didn’t get enough sleep last night. Why would a surgical sales rep want to write a post for a food blog?
Well, Becca and I go to see movies at the theater, and I love to snack. So, who better to review some of these films other than someone who’s been to see some of them?! She also knows I really don’t have any kind of love for The Oscars and thought this might be fun.
So, who are the nominees for Best Picture?
My opinion: Who effing cares about a bunch of pompous, full of themselves actors/actresses and what they’ll do to politicize the show?
But, for those of you who do follow Hollywood, here are my opinions on the nominees, and the snacks that go best with them.
“La La Land”
“Hell or High Water”
“Manchester by the Sea”
Snacks don’t get much better than those.
Then, we have three Best Picture nominees that I haven’t seen the movies for yet, so I can’t tell you much about them.
Point is, if you love movies, you don’t have to flock to watch The Academy Awards, too. The Media will keep you informed and there’s always the Pre-Oscar Red Carpet Show if you really want to see what your latest ‘fav” actress is wearing or how much she had to diet and for how long to fit into that designer dress.
My suggestion is simple… make yourself some It’s Yummi snacks for the Oscars show.
Enjoy the evening without worrying about who’s going to win or what the food you’ve chosen is going to do to your waistline. There’s always tomorrow, and the gym is always an option then, if you’re so inclined.
There you have it, Friends. My husband’s choices for snacks during the Oscars. If you’re like me and are trying to watch your waistline, here a couple of options from my blogging friends, for healthier sweet snacks.
