Raise Your Glassies, Don Your Dressies

The Unofficial Drinking Game for the 2013 Oscars

There is no getting around the fact that no matter how much you popcorn you make, no matter how many times you take that “one last trip” to the candy table, no matter how many live-tweeting parties you view, the Oscars are just sort of boring. Over the last few years, the games have been running at around 4 hours. Add in 2 or so hours of pre-show-red-carpet-shenanigans and you’ve got yourself one freaking ridiculously long night.

And what better way to pass that than with a little drinking game? With the help of the folks at the Huffington Post, nextmovie.com, and a few ideas from my own little brain, I’ve compiled the official Unofficial Drinking Game for the 2013 Oscars. Hit the jump for prompts to keep your night interesting, informational and classy. And please, please, please … be responsible.

On the Red Carpet take a drink every time:

• A celebrity evades a question.

• Someone says they are "so excited to be here."

• A celebrity is photobombed.

• A celebrity is asked who they are wearing.

• You see a celebrity who brought a parent/family member as their date.

• Someone wears a truly hideous dress (yes, we'll leave that up to your own discretion).

• A man wears two-toned shoes with a suit/tux

During the Oscars take a drink each time:

• Someone thanks their parents and/or God.

• Someone acknowledges Meryl Streep.

• A loser begrudgingly smiles to the camera.

• Someone says they didn't have a speech prepared.

• Seth MacFarlane cracks a failed joke.

• Seth McFarlane does a cartoon voice.

• The camera cuts to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.

• The band tries to cut off someone's speech.

• Someone cries.

• Someone curses on stage and is bleeped out.

• Someone says, "I couldn't have done this without … "

• J-Law says something “charmingly unscripted.”

• A winner uses their speech time as a political/environmental/humanitarian platform.

• Someone says they didn't have a speech prepared.

• Someone mentions the Grammy wardrobe restrictions

• Someone winks at the camera

• A cartoon character is shows wearing Oscar-worthy clothing.

Finish your drink if:

• Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress and the camera pans to Meryl Streep.

• One of the cast of Les Misérables sings.

• Adele gets a standing ovation after singing “Skyfall.”
