Hollywood Peeps: 15 Oscar-Winning Films in Marshmallow

Highlights from The Washington Post's Peeps Show diorama contest.

2. West Side Story

The final scene from the Broadway musical/film "Peep Side Story" was a collaboration by Stacey Rathbun of Arlington, Virginia, and Maree Martinez and Nick Johnson of Greenwich, Connecticut. The street lamp is a working book light! It was a semifinalist in WaPo's 2010 competition.

4. The King's Speech

Also from WaPo's 2011 contest, "The King's Peep" by Carolyn Prince Racich and Claudia Tielking portrayed the Academy Award-winning movie in royal marshmallow bunnies. The double-barreled diorama is quite faithful to the film.

7. Silence of the Lambs

This version is called, of course, "Silence of the Peeps, " and depicts FBI agent Clarice Starling interviewing Hannibal Lecter behind protective glass. Creator Sadea Ramsay built this diorama, which made runner-up for WaPo's 2011 competition.

8. The Wizard of Oz

"The Peep Behind the Curtain" is the name of the diorama from Karen Roberts and Ali Nabavi that illustrates the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.The giant head is probably not made of marshmallow.

9. The Grapes of Wrath

The diorama called "The Peeps of Wrath" may be based on the John Steinbeck novel or the 1940 movie adaptation, which won a couple of Academy Awards. The movie poster in the scene leads me to believe it's the latter, so it can be included in this list. The work of Diane Page made runner-up in the 2009 WaPo competition.

10. Thelma and Louise

The 1991 film Thelma and Louise won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and the candy version "Peeps on the Run" won runner-up status in the 2009 Washington Post competition. The entry was from Karen Schroll. The Barbie sunglasses are a nice touch!

12. WALL*E

"PEEP*E" was created by Michael Chirlin and Veronica Ettle for the 2009 WaPo contest. In this scene, the robot PEEP*E shows Eve the sprout he planted in a boot.

13. Amadeus

The 1984 Mozart biopic Amadeus won eight Academy Awards. In 2008, "Peepadeus" was a semifinalist in the Washington Post diorama competition. Sarah Hoff and Jack Hsu designed it as a triptych depicting different parts of the story.

15. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

"Crouching Tiger, Peeping Dragon" by Karen and Mike Wolf-Branigin, made semifinalist at the 2008 competition. In the Peeps version, you can see the strings, but that's okay -we knew they were there in the movie as well.

Bonus: Mommie Dearest

Kathye Hamilton created "Mommie Peepest: No More Wire Hangers, " for WaPo's first diorama contest in 2007. It is a Peep parody of the 1981 film Mommie Dearest. No, Mommie Dearest didn't win any Academy Awards, but I included it because the film won five Razzies! The recreation is faithful from Faye Dunaway's makeup to the rubber duck.
