We Made a Special Bingo Card for Your Oscars Viewing Party

Oscar night is fast approaching—it's this Sunday!—and if you're throwing an Oscar party you're going to have a lot of time to fill. Let's face it, this award ceremony goes on and on forever and snarking on clothes and eating cupcakes can only last so many hours. So why not dazzle your guests with TV.Com's Oscar Bingo? Or at least distract them from wondering out loud whether they should get a Rooney Mara colonic/Rooney Mara's haircut.

The rules are so simple that even a wide-eyed first-time awards presenter could explain them to you: Put a penny or button over each square after the action or object described within it appears in the telecast (or take a refreshing sip or shot of a favorite beverage—in my case, peppermint schnapps, it tastes clean!). The first person to notice a whole row WINS! Or puts on a lampshade on their head and jumps around the room screaming, "Body like Arnold and a Denzel face!!!" depending on whether or not I'm at your party.

"But if our cards are all the same, won't we all get bingo?" It's all about being the most eagle-eyed, guys! The more creatively you interpret each square, the better the chances! So enjoy Oscar night!!! And be glad you don't have to hold your breath for four hours trussed up in a gown three sizes too small like those poor millionaires attending in person. (Don't feel too bad, they all get, like, ambassadorships in their swag bags.)



The 85th Annual Academy Awards air LIVE on Sunday, February 24 at 8pm Eastern on ABC.

Not enough tittays, sore losers, no-shows, Randy Newmans, formal scarves, foreigners in big wins, crying, family guy voices, cirque, statement gowns, teleprompter fails, guyliner, wigs, or thanked agents. I can't speak to handler freaks or revealing celeb tweets. Corny host is arguable, I'd say no.

Only 1 AV cutting off speech (and right when they wanted us to know that 1 thing... oh well); a few really harsh silences to jokes both from the host and others; one or two angers in responses to jokes; a couple anorexics; just a little crying and really old people; a few wasted A-listers (lookin' at you Kristen Stewart, and maybe Adelle). So I think bingo was not achievable on this card, surprisingly!

I would definitely watch The Walking Dead over the Oscars if I lived in the USA.

"Tittays", really Lily? And that image. Too funny though, the whole thing is right on the money, there are going to be a lot of drunk people if they take shots playing this game. I can almost see watching just to see how many of these DON'T come true - that sounds like a good challenge, which will not happen?

The Oscars are a joke. Every movie for Best Picture has done nothing barely in theathers. but yet the Top 3 movies of 2012 The Avengers, Skyfall, and The Dark Knight Rise (which all made over a Billion dollars) are not nominated for the major awards. Give me a break. Get rid of all the old people at the oscars.

Since when does commercial success have to do something with artistic value? I mean, have you ever looked at the music charts in the last decades? Or as someone once put it: "Eat sh*t, because millions of flies can't be wrong!" ^^ (BTW: I like all three of the movies you mentioned very much.)

It's not about money.Look at the acting in those movies compared to the acting in the ones nominated and tell me there ain't a difference.Those movies are good but the oscars aren't about big crazy action from a comic book.And Adele will be performing "Skyfall" at the oscars so theres that.I love the avengers and Dark knight rises but they don't deserve the oscar IMO.They get nominated for other awards in the category's they belong to.

I thought Skyfall and The Dark Knight Rises were a bit of a disappointment and while I did enjoy The Avengers it was most certainly was not the stuff of legend - different strokes...

I have this dread feeling Seth is going to bomb this. If he starts reaching into his Giant Bag of Anti-Jew Jokes, it's all over.

That's what I'm hoping for!
I mean, turning it into a travesty that is.

American idol, what a joke. Good talent got passed over for a side show. The judging by the whinnying blonde next to Keith was awful. She worried more about their availability (single or not) then their talent. What happen to the show.
I really thought it lost a lot of it's professional quality.
I think Meriah wanted to crawl under the table at some of the talent that was picked tonight.
Please bring back the some dignity to the show, there is good talent. It's a talent show, not a side show.

Is this perhaps a sign that Lily will photo recap the ceremony in Price's absence?

I hope someone will (but will it ever be the same without Price?) because while this is funny, it actually requires watching the Oscars, which is a deal breaker for me!
