Just how plastered do you want to get?

Ah, the Golden Globes… the fashion! The celebs! The food! The drinking.

Sure, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have created their own drinking game. But it doesn’t leave much room for those that don’t want to get completely wasted. Below, broken down into three different levels of desired inebriation, find our customizable version that’s still plenty of fun.

Level One: You still want to be able to rhapsodize on the art of film and acting.

Take a drink when:

  • Joaquin Phoenix shows up.
  • Poehler and Fey change their dresses.
  • Diane Keaton accepts the Cecil B. DeMille Award on Woody Allen’s behalf.
  • Michael Douglas brings up an uncomfortable topic.

Bonus Round: Take a drink with your pinky up if Downton Abbey wins.


Level Two: You don’t mind that it’s a Sunday night. That’s what Monday coffee and cold showers are for.

Take a drink when:

  • They cut to a reaction shot of Jack Nicholson.
  • Anyone takes a jab at the Hollywood Foreign Press.
  • Sandra Bullock does her signature “I’m gonna cry” jazz hands move.
  • Matthew McConaughey starts a speech with “all right.” (Note: You are guaranteed at least three drinks here, seeing as he usually says it three times in a row.) He generally plugs his organization, “Just Keep Livin,” so take a drink then, too.

Level Three: Wait, it’s a Sunday night?

Take a drink when:

  • Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Voight or anyone else gets choked up.
  • They cut to a reaction shot of someone–anyone–in the audience.
  • Anyone wins anything.
  • Someone thanks their mom and dad.
