Fun Oscar Party Planning Ideas

And the Oscar for "Best Party" goes to....You! Make it an award winning party, even something simple can make an impact on your friends and family. It's all about the details and special touches. Here are some ideas to make sure your party gets nominated.

    Interactive - Make sure your guests get involved!
  • Oscar ballots are a great way to make sure everyone's vote gets heard. Print some ballots out at Oscars.com. Have the ballots and pencils ready for your guests upon arrival. Tally up the scores at the end, and the winner can receive a bottle of Moet - the official Oscars Champagne!
  • If you and your friends enjoy the red carpet as much or more than the actual awards ceremony, then you can create your own Fashion Police Squad! Create ballots for best and worst dressed both male and female and see what everybody thinks!
  • Recreate the Stop & Repeat - as your guests arrive have them strike their best pose for the paprazzi. If you have someone to help, you can print the photos out and give them to the guests as party favors.
  • Gather together all of the movie posters that are nominated for Best Film and hang them around the viewing room. In terms of a color scheme, gold, silver, and black will keep it glamorous...and don't forget the red carpet! A long piece of red felt can be fixed to your front walkway or hallway - your guests will feel like they are arriving in style!
  • Arrange the viewing room so that everybody can see the television. You may need to clear away or rearrange furniture to make the most comfortable and functional viewing area.

Finger food is ideal for any party that revolves around watching TV. Just pick it up and pop it in your mouth so that you don't miss your favorite actor's speech! If your theme is Hollywood Glamour and your guests are going to be dressed to the nines, try something like:


Truffled Scallop Ceviche
With lemon, sweet corn and caviar

Mini Kobe Burgers
With caramelized onions, organic applewood smoked bacon and Tillamook Cheddar Cheese

Butter Poached Lobster
Served in a tasting spoons

If you wanted to go the more casual route, try:

Flavoured Popcorn served in individual movie popcorn boxes

Mac 'n Cheese Croquettes

Mini BBQ Chicken Sandwiches served on a soft bun with tangy slaw

You can set some things out for your guests to help themselves, and others can be tray passed to keep the elegant touch and allow your guests to mingle and watch the show. Also have fun naming your dishes - use titles and characters from the nominated films.
