The (un)Official Drinking Game of the 2016 Oscars

The 2016 Oscars will air this Sunday at 7:30 Central and the world is can barely contain it’s excitement!

Okay, that’s not really true. Most people are apathetic about this year’s nominees and the #OscarSoWhite controversy threw even more cold water on everything. I thought I’d spice things up with a good old-fashioned Oscars Drinking Game, so we’d have something to do when we weren’t making fun of everyone’s gowns and make-up choices. Before we get good and drunk though, I think we should address the old, white elephant in the room with our very first rule.

RULE #1: Take a shot of plain water anytime emcee Chris Rock makes a joke about the lack of diversity amongst Oscar voters and nominees. I suspect he’ll be at it all night, so this would be a good opportunity to hydrate. Continue reading →

ON YOUR RADAR: “Sicario” & “Master of None”

So many new TV shows and movies are coming down the pipe, it’s hard to keep track of all of them. I’ve been digging through the press releases and picking out the ones that I personally am most pumped about. Take, for instance, Sicario from Director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Sheridan plays Deputy Chief David Hale on the FX series Sons of Anarchy. He’s apparently a writer in his spare time and a pretty damn good one, as well.

Sicario is about an anti-drug-cartel task force and stars Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt is at the heart of it all, playing an FBI Agent who is drafted into the group. When I saw Blunt’s name attached to Sicario, my first thought was, “What is SHE doing here?” I asked the same question about her role in Edge of Tomorrow though, and Blunt absolutely killed it in that movie. There’s already Oscar buzz around this one, specifically for Blunt’s performance so let’s keep our fingers crossed for her. Sicario will open in theaters September 18th. Continue reading →
