Without unions, there would be no Oscars. The thousands of men and women who bring Hollywood’s most decorated films to life – in front of and behind the cameras – are proud union members, and this weekend’s Oscar ceremony will showcase their work. In honor of Tinseltown’s biggest night, we offer a light-hearted list of union-made items inspired by the eight Best Picture nominees.

“Black Panther”

As evolved as those Wakandans are, we figure they can come up with some killer words. (“Vibranium” gets you 16, with no bonus spaces.)


Bacardi Rum
Director Lee would appreciate a little something to “spike” the punch.

“Bohemian Rhapsody”

When the Mercury climbs too high, you’ll need something to cool the fever.

“The Favourite”

Remington Arms
Rachel Weisz’s Lady Sarah Marlborough never actually uses her rifle on her scheming cousin Abigail, but she could handle the weapon.

“Green Book”

Steinway and Sons pianos
Put Mahershala Ali’s Dr. Don Shirley in front of one of these babies and those ivories will sing.


Maytag washers and dryers
To make housekeeper Cleo’s job just a little bit easier.

“A Star is Born”

Puffs Facial Tissue
Bring plenty when watching this movie, and just try not to run through them.


See’s Candy
We can’t speak for anyone else, but these yummy chocolates are certainly our vice.
