Bitchy Critics Discuss Oscar Drinking Games

Former LA Weekly television critic Robert Abele and this fishie are watching the Oscars together- via IM- and have been trying to settle on a drinking game.

Pandora:
We have to take a shot every time Mickey Rourke mentions his dead chihuahua Loki.

Robert:
How about a shot for every time they cut to a famous person in the crowd obviously embarrassed for Hugh Jackman?

Pandora:
But if we do that, we’ll be wasted within 20 minutes.
We need something else.

Robert:
hmmm
Holy shit it’s about to start.

Pandora:
C’mon
Ideas. You’re my Idea Man.
You’re the professional critic

Robert:
Not anymore, dearie

Pandora:
Couldn’t they have taught Hugh Jackman to speak English for this event?

Robert:
Kate Winslet got referred to as “range”

Pandora:
How about we take a drink every time we find ourselves wishing Jackman was Jon Stewart?

Robert:
I don’t think turning the Oscars into the Tonys is going to help the ratings.
