Make the Oscars more interesting with a drinking game

If you wouldn't dream of missing the Oscars, but dread the tediously long ceremony of gushing celebrities and awkward jokes, we've got a suggestion for you. Alcohol.

Now before you start running for the liquor cabinet, let's take a moment to remember that while a beer or two will definitely make the Oscars more interesting, multiple shots of whiskey will likely lead to things you'll regret in the morning.

All together now, drink responsibly!

Ok, now that's out of the way, check out GamesRadar+'s rules for drinking during the Oscars. Feel free to share your rambling thoughts and outraged opinions in the comments below as the night progresses...

Take a drink:

Every time The Revenant wins anything

John Travolta is creepy

The orchestra tries to play someone off stage

Chris Rock makes a #OscarsSoWhite joke

You claim an animation nominee is “brilliant” even though you’ve never seen it

When you nod off

When the camera catches someone nodding off

When you really wish things like Snowpiercer got nominated

Every time you remember how good The Force Awakens was

One of the losing nominees shows clear signs that they were robbed

The camera cuts to some old guy no one has any idea about

Someone pauses for a second with a look of blank terror on their face because someone/thing has missed a cue

Down your drink:

When Mad Max: Fury Road loses, obviously

Leonardo DiCaprio actually wins Best Actor… finally

Someone trips J-Law style


Someone says a naughty word and the bleep police are too slow

It's finally over

No drinking:

If Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't win (again), you must pour your drink out in his honour

No red carpet invite? Here's how to watch the 2016 Oscars...
