It's the time of year for Oscar parties...and we are not talking about Oscar the Grouch. We're talking about the golden boy, THE OSCAR, given out by the Academy for excellence in the film industry. The Academy Awards, this year, will be held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and hosted by Hugh Jackman. It is the 81st annual Academy Awards presentation.

The History of The Academy Awards

The first Oscars were given out in 1929 at the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood. These first awards were given to honor the outstanding achievments in film for the years 1927 and 1928. The very first hosts were William C. DeMille (Cecil) and Douglas Fairbanks. Every year since The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has given recognition to the professionals who work in the film industry.

Vote Just Like The Academy

A fun party game for Oscar Night is to prepare voting cards in advance. Hand them out as your guests arrive and ask them to fill the cards out. Write on the Cards:

  • Best Picture
  • Actor in a Leading Role
  • Actress in a Leading Role
  • Actor in a Supporting Role
  • Actress in a Supporting Role

You get the picture. Write down as many categories as you like, make copies of the cards and make sure to hand them out right away. You've got to collect them before the ceremony begins. When the awards are over you can check all the cards to see who has the most correct answers. That is the person who is chosen as "Movie Fan of the Year", and the prize of course, is an Oscar of their very own.

Since this party theme is all about the Academy Awards Ceremony, these two party games should be more than enough. You and your guests will be watching and discussing the Awards on TV, so you won't need much distraction.

You can have an elegant Hollywood Red Carpet Experience for your fellow movie lovers. You can choose to host a jeans only Oscar party. Choose whichever describes your crowd best. Either way, you will be sure to win the award in the "Best Party" Category.
