It’s the Oscars! Time For a New Drinking Game
Posted February 22, 2015on:
Good Sunday, Widdershins, The Academy Awards presentations will begin shortly, and the red carpet if flush (pun intended) with beautifully dressed Hollywood royalty. There are some interesting nominees this year, but as usual, basically of the white and male ilk. (I have to wonder how they manage nominees for Best Actress categories. It must be painful.) Anyhow, what better time for a drinking game then how? I must confess that this is not original. I am not sufficiently savvy about the culture to do a decent job, so I will reprint the one from Cloture Club. Should you wish to add to or amend the rules, feel free to do so. And, as always, please drink responsibly.
– Drink 1 whenever host Neil Patrick Harris breaks into song. – Tap your glass and drink one to J.K. Simmons’ tempo if he wins for WHIPLASH. – Drink for as long as the music plays a winner off the stage – Yell Hack the Planet and Drink 2 if the Sony leak or “hacking” is mentioned. – Be the dominant. Make someone submit to taking a drink if Fifty Shades of Grey is mentioned. – Don’t drink… anything… if someone makes a joke about Bill Cosby. – Drink 1 and squawk if Birdman wins any award. – Drink if the much-deserved frontrunner, Patricia Arquette, pulls out a prepared speech. Finish your drink if she surprises everyone and speaks off the top of her head. – Nurse your beer if the fake baby from American Sniper gets a shoutout. – Each time you hear the theme song for Boyhood, take a drink for every year that elapsed during filming. (Hint: it took 11 years to finish the film).
This is an otherwise open thread.
