What, no ticket to the 2011 Oscar Awards this Sunday? Consider it a lucky opportunity to view the red carpet from the best seat anywhere: your couch. You’re free to heckle the stars (their attire, hair, dates) as you wish, and shout out loud with excitement or disappointment when each winner is announced. And without a slinky dress or monkey suit to starve yourself into, you can enjoy a nominee-themed menu without worry.

Check back here every day this week — we’ll be posting menu ideas for all of the Best Picture nominees so you can eat along with your favorite film, or pick and choose from each to create your own award-winning menu. Today, Black Swan and The Fighter; two movies about battling foes both internal and actual. For tense dramas like these, popcorn just won’t do.
