    That’s a cute idea – someday I’m going to have to have an Oscar Party with movie-themed food. Meanwhile, it’s popcorn for me. And it’s all Debbie Reynolds’ fault – the scene in “In and Out” (with Kevin Kline) where Debbie Reynolds hands out huge bowls of popcorn to her family as they settle in to watch the Academy Awards. That popcorn looks So Good!
