Oscar-inspired hot dogs


This year's Academy Awards are nearly upon us, which can only mean one thing. It's time for Will Levitt's annual Oscar Dogs.

This is the third year food writer Levitt has turned his hand to creating Oscar-worthy hot dogs - one for each of the films nominated for Best Picture.

From a Christian Bale dog to a money-laden Wall Street snack, we're pretty sure this year's attempts are his best yet. He even manages to stay tasteful for 12 Years A Slave.

We're off to pool together the necessary ingredients for Sunday's ceremonies. Enjoy.
