T-Minus 12 Hours...
The Oscars can be a long, long night. You're up all hours of the morning waiting to see who will win best picture and unlucky for us, the academy knows exactly what it's doing as it's the very last award to be given on the night. That means you have to sit through 23 other categories plus musical performances before the award you're interested in is announced.
Granted the Oscars has already been an unpredictable event with the decision to not have an official host and the many Oscar snubs amongst this year's nominees. While we definitely couldn't have predicted either of those happening, we have a funny feeling that God, The Academy and Bradley Cooper will all be thanked in this year's acceptance speeches.
So here's how to prevent that inevitable Oscar snore...
(Please remember to drink responsibly, and remember that the game works just as well with non-alcoholic beverages.)
Take One Sip When:
Someone struggles to open the envelope
A movie you haven't seen wins
An actress walks the red carpet in a pant suit
A joke about the Oscars not having a host is made
Someone takes their mam as their date
An actor/actress wins their first ever Oscar
The Academy is thanked
Take Two Sips When:
More than 10 people on stage
Lady Gaga looks like she's in love with Bradley Cooper
You've never actually heard of a category
Someone says "I'm sure I'm forgetting someone"
You spot an empty seat
There's PDA on the red carpet (down that drink if it's from Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton)
Things get political
Down Your Drink When:
A man wears something other than a black tux on the red carpet
A film you've actually seen wins an award
Music cuts off a winner's speech
A joke actually lands
Kendrick Lamar and Sza actually show up to the Oscars. (Pour that drink and down again if they also perform)
You actually manage to stay awake for the entire show
