Awards season is in full swing and one of the most highly anticipated awards shows is coming up — the 2019 Oscars. Whether you're a huge movie buff or a casual viewer, the Oscars is a big deal. If you're hosting an Oscars viewing party, you may be looking for some elevated dishes fit for a black-tie affair. I've done some digging through our favorite recipes and selected a few that'll steal the show — some are even inspired by the Oscars' afterparty menu – so grab your plate, take a seat and let's see who wins!

These champagne jelly flutes look just like a glass of bubbly, but they're actually jelly in disguise. It's a festive treat that's not only pretty, but fun to eat too!
