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.

Make dead celebs’ dishes the life of your Oscar party
Liberace’s sticky buns. That’s Frank DeCaro’s favorite recipe in his freshly published Dead Celebrity Cookbook (HCI Books, $19.95), and the reason has nothing to do with taste—although DeCaro says the packaged crescent rolls doused in rum, butter and enough seasoning to spice a pumpkin pie are dangerously delicious. “It just kills me,” says the Sirius Radio talk show host and former “Daily Show” film critic, “but only if he’s in on the joke. If he’s not in on the joke, it’s just sad.”
