What’s Oscar night without a little bit of booze? Here at Los Angeles magazine we’ve created a helpful drinking game to enliven your Academy Award-watching experience.
Keep a drink handy, this year’s telecast is sure to be full of toast-prompting moments.
Take A Drink When:
-A red carpet reporter describes a celebrity’s outfit as a tribute to “Old Hollywood”
-Each time Billy Crystal breaks into song
-The camera cuts to Uggie, the canine star of The Artist
-Someone mispronounces a title in the Best Foreign Film category
-Any time an award winner begins their acceptance speech with “I didn’t prepare a speech…”
-Someone makes a joke about the length of the telecast
-An award winner thanks more than ten people
-After a joke, the camera cuts to a reaction shot of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, or Ryan Gosling
-Each time Billy Crystal makes a joke about any of the following:
The 2012 Presidential election
Girls with dragon tattoos
“Money” or “balls”
Enjoy your Monday morning hangover!
