We’re going to be completely honest with you: we have seen less Academy Award nominated films this year than ever before. The only best picture nominee we saw was Juno, which confirmed our suspicion that we like the idea of Diablo Cody more than her writing itself and was, at any rate, only the second best comedy about accidental pregnancy that came out in 2007. The fact that we never even considered seeing No Country For Old Men or There Will Be Blood, however, has not stopped us from wanting to watch the Oscars socially. Tomorrow morning, we’ll discuss throwing an Oscar party at home, but for the less domestically-inclined, here are four local Oscar soirees.
•UpStairs on the Square always throws a great party. Their Oscar night fête starts at 5pm and will feature themed eats and drinks, a predicting contest, and prizes for the most glamourous outfits of the night.
•Club Cafe will be rocking the Oscars starting at 6pm with dancing, prizes (including a travel voucher worth $250!), and, thank god, “Joan Rivers” on the red carpet. Awesome.
•Lir will play host to awesome interactive celebrity gossip site Fafarazzi’s Oscar bash at 6pm. There will be free food and prizes aplenty.
•Women’s networking society GlamBoston will be holding their Oscar bash at Cafeteria at 7pm. We suggest getting dressed to the nines for this one.
