Oscar Party Ideas - Lincoln Top Hat Cookies Recipe a No-bake candy creation by Lauryn Cohen, founder of Bella Baker

 The Oscar carpet is being prepared and so are the goodies in the kitchen for a fabulous Oscar party! These no-bake cookies from Bella Baker are the perfect accompaniment to the Best Picture category. Disney’sLincoln” is among the eight nominees in this category but one of two that are thought to be the front runner.

Steve Spielberg is no stranger to the red carpet. He walks them so often that even I got to walk behind him as he strolled the red carpet in New York City at the “[amazon_link id=”B0072GPQ72″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]War Horse[/amazon_link]” premiere and yes, like everyone in Hollywood, he looks shorter in person.

This time he’ll be in LA along with his leading man, the fabulous Daniel Day-Lewis. But they won’t be the only director/leading man duo there hoping for a win, but I’ll admit, as a Disney fan I am rooting for them. But they’re not the only actors that made this film great. Sally Field, a favorite of mine since her days as “The Flying Nun,” will do her turn on the carpet as well and I expect her to look fabulous. She’s a class act and a great representative of us older women.

I’ve yet to see the film but will be streaming it soon. I hear it’s spectacular but I can’t help but giggle that we know the outcome. Still, I love a good historical movie and I’m a sucker for a period film.  And who doesn’t love the 1800’s?
