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