If you're still hustling to get all of the Best Picture nominees watched before the Oscars on February 24, don't starve yourself doing it. We've been pairing up dinner and movies just so you'd be ready for Oscar season. While we didn't hit all of the nominees, we got most of them and have ideas for those that we didn't try already. If you can contain yourself at the concession stand, there are plenty of tasty meals to go along with your movie outings.
