The Official JAJ Oscars Drinking Game (2012)

Take 3 drinks any time…
- …someone’s acceptance speech gets interrupted by the orchestra playing them off.
- …someone makes a (conservative) political statement.
- …someone makes a reference to The Tree of Life being weird, experimental, pretentious, etc.
- …there’s a mention of Michael Fassbender getting screwed over in these awards.

And the part of the game that will really test your resilience: For every award being given, before the winner is announced, say 1.) Which nominee you want to win, and 2.) Which nominee you expect to win.
- If the winner is the nominee you want to win, congratulations! Take 1 drink!
- If the winner is the nominee you expect to win, you’re so smart! Take 2 drinks!
- If the winner is a nominee you neither wanted or expected to win, learn from your mistakes! Take 3 drinks!
(if you want and expect the same nominee to win, you only need to take 2 drinks if it is, in fact, the winner)
