Guests will love a pre-Oscar Party the night before, the weekend prior, or the afternoon of the awards.

Guests come in character and debate which films and film stars should win an award.

Each guest brings a movie-theme food from their favorite films.


A Game Show setting with prizes for the winners ... Guests take turns as contestants to answer "A, B, C, or D" to questions about nominated films and film stars.

(Glamorous Glitz Attire-- Feather boas, long gloves, sequin bow ties, bling!)
