Oscar night will be here soon and it is a good time to gather friends together for your own celebration of movies. There are numerous movies that have been nominated for the Academy Awards that have been released to DVD already and what better way to prepare for the award show then by hosting a screening party. A week before the Oscars is the perfect time to gather family and friends and view some of those nominated films and have the guests critique and pick their favorites to win on the big night. Test guests with movie trivia or Oscar trivia before the show.
One of the wonderful parts of the Academy Awards is the Red Carpet. When throwing a party for the Oscars, have your guests walk a red carpet on the way into the party and request your guests to dress up for the event as well. It is a great way to capture the fun of the night.
This year the Academy Awards will air on ABC March 2, 2014 with Ellen DeGeneres hosting the show. There will be a night of laughter as well as sadness, especially when watching the Memorian portion of the show. Bette Midler, Pink, Idina Menzel, Pharrell and U2 will be performing on the show as well. Presenters include Kim Novack from Alfred Hitchcock's movie 'Vertigo' and Anne Hathaway.
However you enjoy the night of the Academy Awards, it will be full of interesting performances, remembrance and award winners.
