By Samantha Coles

The 96th Academy Awards ceremony, aka the Oscars, is soon upon us. Taking place on March 10 at the Solby Theatre in Hollywood, the event will honor films released in 2023. Some big names have received several nominations (Oppenheimer is taking the lead with 13 nominations; Poor Things is a close second with 11). As ever, predictions are flooding in as to who will scoop the most golden man statues.  If you’re considering hosting your own Oscars gala, movie-inspired cocktails are an obvious choice. The following — from Barbenheimer to Pour Things — are as punny as they are delish.
