The (Very) Unofficial 2018 Academy Awards Drinking Game

March 1, 2018


Sunday is a day for movie lovers as the 90th annual Academy Awards prepares to take flight. With Jimmy Kimmel set to return as host, anything is possible during film's biggest night. Likewise, there's no better way to honor such an occasion than by playing a drinking game that's guaranteed to get you drunk.


Grab a mixed-drink, six pack of beer, bottle of wine or champagne, and play along while watching Hollywood's biggest night unfold.
