Drinking games are too easy. People don't need any encouragement to imbibe during awards shows; liquour vanishes without assistance. So we play more complicated games at the Oscar party. One of the biggest hits each year chez moi is a game involving the characters from the year's movies. Brave volunteers draw character names from a hat and during the lengthy commercial breaks, they have 90 seconds to reenact a famous moment.
This year, I'm going to experiment and tweak this game to try to keep things fresh. If the experiment succeeds, I'll share the story here. If it doesn't... this is the last you'll hear of it!
I'd love to collect "best moment" stories from your Oscar parties tonight. Or even photos... like we did with those reader costumes for Halloween. So if you have something you just gotta share... |send it my way with "oscar party" in the subject line, and I'll share a few alternate festivities right here next week.
