It's Hollywood's Super Bowl – so if you're throwing an Oscar party, hot wings just won't do.
Instead of critiquing the gowns over cold pizza and nachos, check out these glam recipes that will rival what the stars are eating – or pretending to eat – at the posh post-Academy Awards bashes.

Having recently told Katie Couric during an interview that she does have a boyfriend, Jessica Chastain made what is apparently her first public appearance with him Friday night, at the Women in Film 6th annual Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party.
Arriving arm and arm together at Fig & Olive in Los Angeles, the Zero Dark Thirty Best Actress nominee and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo sipped Perrier-Jouët Champagne in the main room before Chastain spotted her costar from last year's The Help, Viola Davis, and Davis's husband.
Chastain, 35, hugged and kissed the 31-year-old Passi, making it clear to all who saw them that the two are, in fact, a couple.

Today might be the only day any of us will ever feel sorry for Ben Affleck. The nominations for the 85th annual Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning and the Argo director shockingly didn't make the cut.
But here's who did – and who should have:
Best DirectorThe shock: Two huge snubs! Not only did Argo's Affleck get dissed, even though he had one of the best-reviewed films of the year, but so did Zero Dark Thirty's Kathryn Bigelow, a previous Best Director winner for The Hurt Locker – which I'd argue isn't nearly the accomplishment that Zero Dark Thirty is. Both of the films about terror made the cut for Best Picture, however. But then, that was expected.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.

Time to start the party: Thursday morning brought good news to Tinseltown – with the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Among the major names topping the list – nominees were announced by Megan Fox, Ed Helms and Jessica Alba – are such favorites as Anne Hathaway and Sally Field (for their respective supporting roles in Les Misérables and Lincoln), Nicole Kidman (for HBO's Hemingway and Gellhorn and the film The Paperboy), Leonardo DiCaprio (for his supporting role in Django Unchained) and Argo director Ben Affleck, who'll compete in that category along with Kathryn Bigelow, for Zero Dark Thirty; Ang Lee, for Life of Pi; Steven Spielberg, for Lincoln; and Quentin Tarantino, for Django Unchained.

Success, as they say, has many fathers. In the killing of Osama bin Laden, proud papas from President Obama to SEAL Team 6 earned kudos aplenty – and justifiably so, given the monstrosity of bin Laden's crimes. But with all due respect to all those dads, it's time to meet Mom.
Few people know the identity of the real-life female CIA agent who hunted bin Laden, but Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow calls her Maya in Zero Dark Thirty, which stars Jessica Chastain in the role, as well as Kyle Chandler and Jennifer Ehle. You'll recognize Maya before we've even been properly introduced, because she's the only pretty redhead in Pakistan assisting in the waterboarding of a detainee.
