Congrats to all of the People's Choice Award winners which kicked off awards season! As exciting as the People's Choice, SAG, and all the other awards shows are, the one we're all waiting to tune in for is the Academy Awards. Have you seen the 2012 Oscar nominations that just came out? I haven't seen a lot of the movies yet, so I'm looking forward to some movie nights before I'll voice my opinions. You can check out the complete list of nominees here.
This year, the Oscars will be on Sunday, February 24th. If you interested in throwing an Oscar party, check out these official tips from the Academy itself complete with star-inspired recipes for drinks and appetizers like deviled eggs with caviar and truffle grilled cheese. Talk about fancy! You can even download an Oscar ballot to predict the winners or play Oscar bingo. If you're looking for some more adult fun, because let's face it, the entire show is boring except the last 15 minutes, go for a drinking game. This one is inspired by the Huffington Post) Drink if/when...
