The time has come once again for America to gather around the TV and watch actors win awards for movies you may or may not have seen. On Feb. 26 at 7 p.m., Jimmy Kimmel will host the 89th Academy Awards on ABC. There’s only one way to handle this attention-grabbing insanity: a quality drinking game.
For the apathetic crowd, watching the Oscars is just as much about sipping on drinks as it is about who wins. Whether you’re in the do-care camp or the do-not-care camp, grab your drink of choice and follow VinePair’s Oscars drinking game for people who don’t care about the Oscars.
