2010 Oscar Special - Video

All boundaries are crossed including gender, race, and good taste in this year's "The 99 Cent Chef's Oscar Special." The Chef hams it up with a deli-case worth of meaty Oscar nominated roles -- from Meryl Streep's celebratory turn as Julia Child to egocentric James Cameron directing his bombastic Avatar -- and a tasty Oscar-ready entree is paired with 5 mind-blowing, performances!

Best Actress performances are always the meatiest roles, and The Chef's bon vivant spin as Julia Child will surely bring a smile to Academy voters when he/she serves up sumptuous Beef Bourguignon while wearing the family jewels.

Next, when the chameleon cook takes a spin as Gabourey Sidibe, the boa feathers will fly when her abusive mother wakes "Precious" from her dancing daydream.

Some Best Director nominees are notorious as perfectionist screamers -- and at the top of the list is James "I'm king of the world" Cameron. Watch me feast on his bloated ego as he directs the over-stuffed "Avatar."

The Chef swings a bat to bring home the bacon from Best Picture nominee Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds." And fitting for a Tarantino-style shocking scene, the Chef serves up a dish that will have tongues wagging.

And finally, the Chef gets serious with an endearing, beer-soaked turn as Best Actor nominee Jeff Bridges in "Crazy Heart." And he serves up a Southern soul-satisfying dish.

Each of The Chef's performances is paired with an entree. Which one is deserving of a Golden Whisk? Well, you don't have to be a member of the Academy to vote: just leave your comment, and The Chef will tally the votes and announce the winning entree (with step-by-step cooking instructions) in a follow up blog-post.

Vote for an Oscar-worthy entree, including: Beef Bourguignon, Chicken-Fried Steak, Sunny Side Up Eggs, Bunny Burger Royale with Cheese, & a Whopper Jr.

That chicken fried steak would sure be good with some biscuits, uh huh.
