Get ready for awards season viewing parties

Mini Asian crab cakes

Awards seasons is nigh upon us: the Grammys, Oscars, and Golden Globes will be here before you know it, so you need to get your viewing party menu set now. (Alas, it is difficult to host viewing parties for the fast-approaching and vitally important cookbook awards). As Yahoo! Foods Joanna Prisco says, "Whether you've watched every single film and miniseries that's been nominated this year or are mainly planning to gawk at the gowns on the red carpet, one thing remains certain: Appropriate viewing-party food is a must." You can see the slideshow of Joanna's ideas for great appetizers and cocktails.

The EYB Library also hosts a bevy of bite-size goodies and creative cocktails sure to make your Oscar or other viewing party a success. Try one of these talked-about recipes, all available online:
