The James Beard Awards will be presented on May 6 with a theme of "Lights! Camera! Taste! Spotlight on Food & Film." Stanley Tucci (of Hunger Games fame) will be the master of ceremonies. The James Beard Awards were once dubbed the "Oscars of the food industry" by Time magazine- a comparison that is especially fitting as this year is a celebration of both food and film.
