The 84th annual Academy Awards are taking place on Sunday, February 26th. If you’re hosting an Oscar party, attending one as a guest, or just staying home to watch in your pajamas, I came up with a list of nominee-inspired recipes to help you set a festive mood.

Pasta with Rooney Mara-nara Sauce for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Black and White Cheesecake Squares for The Help

Brad Pitt-ed Date Balls for Moneyball
