Fortune Cookies 2008

Once again, Eleni's New York is solving your Oscar party menu woes with a fresh batch of Academy Award nominated cookies for your cinematic dining pleasure. Although, I must say, compared to last year (complete as it was with Juno pregnancy tests and Anton Chigurh bolt pistols), this year's selection of Best Picture treats isn't quite as inspired.

Sure, there's books for The Reader, Watergate files for Frost/Nixon and the whole Taj Mahal for Slumdog Millionaire, but couldn't they have thrown in a bald baby Brad Pitt for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button instead of (yawn) buttons? And the Harvey Milk campaign t-shirt for Milk is nice, but the only thing else they could come up with is a bullhorn? Hello, rainbow flag!?!

As you can see, the bakery has supplemented their Oscar nominated actor and actress cookies with a complete set of corresponding cupcakes, graced with the likes of frontrunners Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn, along with the rest of the nominees in the top two acting categories.

Whichever set of sweets you choose to nosh on while watching the Big Show on Sunday night, one thing is certain: they'll all taste good with a tall glass of (wait for it) milk ...
