It’s a time-honored tradition: On Oscar night, when Hollywood pats itself on the back again and again … and again, average folks around the world watch the broadcast and mercilessly pick apart their idols. After all, what’s better than questioning the sartorial judgment of people much more attractive and much wealthier than you are?
And if you’re going to do it anyway, why not make a game of it? Here, we’ve collected some of the sights you’re bound to see at the high-brow Academy Awards and paired them with that very mass-market pastime — bingo.
Cut out the cards, distribute to your Oscar-night guests and discuss the rules beforehand. Will a player only win with horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines? Or can you do four corners? Does the pre-show coverage count, or only the actual awards show?
Players MUST call out clues for them to count. Decide whether everyone gets to mark their board when they see a clue on TV, or just the first person to call it out.
