January can be kind of a drag. Between the weather and the never-ending talk of resolutions and change, it is easy to get stuck in the doldrums. However, one fun thing about the beginning of the year, especially if you are a movie lover, is the awards show circuit! From red carpets, to never-ending speeches, to heartfelt moments, awards shows are plain old fun…so what better way to enjoy them than with a small party? Here are some fun ideas for the BAFTAs, the Razzies, the SAGs, or the Oscars!
- Have every person bring a dish that represents their favorite movie this year (for example: Hawaiian salad for The Descendants, Black & White Cookies for The Artist, etc.)
- Make small scorecards in which everyone can fill out who they hope or think will win…the winner can get a small prize!
- Stick with the theme of the awards show–Old Hollywood glam for the Oscars, fun & playful for the Razzies, and so on
- Make plans to re-unite and watch the top-winning movie when it comes on DVD
Whatever your plans, make sure to enjoy the big night!
