Oscar Party Activities

Hey Ya’ll,

On Monday, I shared my PEOPLE mag spread of festive Oscar party ideas but today I’ve got even more ideas to take your viewing party up a notch!

First, The Oscars are all about what a celebrity is wearing, that is why the pre-show is almost as long and in-depth as the actual show! So rather than having your guest dress up in their finest designer duds, suggest that all your guests come dressed wearing a costume from their favorite movie…

For example, someone might dress like a baseball player inspired by the movie MoneyBall while another guest might come in a hula skirt or Hawaiian shirt and shorts–like George Clooney’s character says in The Descendants, “the wealthiest people in Hawaii look like surfers and bums”. A few more fun costume ideas include dressing like “The Help” or wearing a vintage 50’s June Cleaver dress or a soldier uniform, or for the really creative: WARHORSE! Regardless of which movie inspires them, costumes are a fun way to get your guests chatting before the show.

If costumes seem like too much work, you can always make your party more interactive by having your guests play games! If you have time, make custom BINGO boards by changing it to OSCARS:

O – can be (5) of the Best Picture nominations in random order
S – can be the (5) Best Actor nominations in random order
C – can be the (5) Best Actress nominations in random order
A – can be the (5) Best Supporting Actor nominations in random order
R – can be the (5) Best Supporting Actress nominations in random order
S – can be the remaining (5) Best Picture nominations in random order

Rather than using a bingo blotter, give everyone gold star stickers to place on the name or title when announced. You can also click HERE to visit a blog called How About Orange, where you can print out 20 different Oscar inspired BINGO boards for free.

Or, you can create a crossword puzzle or one of the many other puzzles at: www.discoveryeducation.com/puzzlemaker. There are a number of fun ways to incorporate the nominees into a puzzle and it is a fun activity for guests to have to figure out.

I hope these activity ideas help you create an extraordinary experience for your Oscar-fest guests this weekend.
