Popcorn, a beloved movie snack, dates back to the Aztec empire. Here, 5 great ways to enjoy popcorn during the silver screen's biggest night.

1. Traditional. If you're going the standard route, there's nothing wrong with sea salt or butter toppings.

2. Spicy. Chipotle-spiked caramel drizzled over popcorn balls adds terrific heat.

3. Cheesy. Upgrade popcorn with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

4. Asian-inflected. Use Japanese seasonings like togarashi (a chile blend) and crumbled nori (dried seaweed).

5. Truffled. Toss with truffle salt or truffled butter for a deliciously rich, earthy flavor.

6. Tangy. For piquant popcorn, mix in pickling spices like coriander seeds and dill weed.

7. Healthy. Add nutritional yeast for extra protein and a fantastic cheesy, nutty flavor.
