Oscar-themed hot dogs

It's long been a criticism of the Oscars that it all remains slightly inaccessible to the mainstream viewer.

With their focus on films that rich, 60-year-old white men might enjoy, they exist in a world that most of us normals don't usually occupy.

But when you take the excess and glamour of the Oscars and combine it with the down-to-earth charm of the hot dog, something rather awesome happens. Will Levitt decided to design nine hot dogs as a tribute to the nominees for Best Picture. From the Parisian indulgence of the Midnight in Paris dog to the monochromatic simoplicity of The Artist dog, there's a meal for everyone.

We'll take one of each.
