And the Academy Award for the best viewing party of 2014 goes to…YOU!

This year, putting out some chips and inviting all your friends over to watch celebs win big just won’t cut it. It’s time to seriously step up your game!

Using these five simple ideas, you’ll be on your way to an epic viewing party in no time.

Upon their arrival, give your guests a paper ballot to fill out and predict who they think will win big—bonus point for crafting it yourself! Make this easy version. [Studio DIY]

 

2. Star Straws

Make straws for all the best actor nominees, and tell your guests to pick the straw of who they think will win. It’s the easiest way to find out who is on “Team Amy,” or “Team Jen!” To make them, you’ll need a printer, scissors and  — no surprise here — straws.  Instructions here. [Cupcakes and Cashmere]

Thanks to this game of bingo, watching the red carpet has never been so fun. The bingo spaces include funny and cheeky sayings like “Actor named Matt or Matthew,” “Non-black tuxedo” and “Backless dress.”  [Lauren Vennell.com]
