Real life gets more and more like the Hunger Games each day: Actor, author, director, and all-around food guy Stanley Tucci will host the 2013 James Beard Awards ceremony on May 6, and the theme of this year’s ceremony is the very cinematic-sounding “Lights! Camera! Taste! Spotlight on Food & Film.” The always awesome Ted Allen will host the organization’s James Beard Foundation Book, Broadcast & Journalism Awards Dinner on Friday, May 3.
