It had to be done.
hours about 15 minutes of research, we have come up with could quite possibly be the ULTIMATE OSCARS DRINKING GAME EVAH!*
So pour a glass/crack open a bottle of your favourite tipple (or soft drink – we don’t discriminate) and brace yourselves!
TAKE A SIP WHEN:
Someone on the red carpet is wearing Marchesa, Elie Saab or Reem Accra (all of them fabulous designers, might we add)
On the red carpet someone has brought their mum
On the red carpet, Ryan Seacrest says something stupid/unfunny… (might want to set aside a whole bottle for that one)
…and the person he is interviewing reacts in a “What the hell?” kind of way
On the red carpet, Giuliana Rancic says “Oh my God you look so beautifuuuul!” or something similar
On the red carpet a man is asked “who he is wearing”
P Diddy shows up
TAKE TWO SIPS WHEN:
Ellen DeGeneres starts a dance party
Ellen DeGeneres makes a joke about Leonardo DiCaprio not winning an Oscar
Ellen DeGeneres makes a joke about Pharrell Williams’ mountain ranger hat
There is a shot of Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse (just to remind us all that YES HE IS TAKEN)
There is a shot of Benedict Cumberbatch smiling/laughing/waving (on the red carpet and/or during the ceremony)
There is a shot of Michael Fassbender rocking that beard (on the red carpet and/or during the ceremony)
KNOCK IT BACK WHEN:
Leonardo DiCaprio wins
Lupita Nyong’o wins
There is a standing ovation
Ellen DeGeneres makes a Shia LeBoeuf joke
Someone’s speech goes on for too long and the music starts playing
That someone makes a comment that the music has started playing
There is a shot of Jennifer Lopez (on the red carpet/and or at the ceremony), seeing as she always turns up to these things
Jennifer Lawrence does something apparently “adorkable” (again, you might need a whole bottle)
None, some or all of these things might happen, but whatever does happen, we hope you have fun trying this out – and don’t worry, we’ll be doing it too!
What else could we drink to?
*OK, maybe not ever. I was drunk when I wrote that part.**
