2019 Oscars | Red Carpet BINGO

February 23, 2019 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

There’s plenty to watch at the 91st Academy Awards this Sunday. After controversy over old tweets, appointed Oscars host Kevin Hart dropped out, and the ceremony will not have a host. A Netflix film is nominated for Best Picture—NETFLIX! The guys who used to mail you DVDs might win Best Picture! And here at PorchDrinking, there’s a drinking game for the ceremony. Play along!

But before the ceremony begins, there’s some fun to watch on the red carpet! We’re bringing you Oscars BINGO for watching the (seemingly endless) hours of coverage of beautiful people showing up to celebrate each other. Who will the stars of Hollywood be wearing? What will the color of the year be? Will Spike Lee wear a hat? How much small talk about the freakishly cold LA weather this weekend will E! hosts be making with celebrities? Find out at your Oscars viewing party, as you play PorchDrinking Oscars BINGO during the Red Carpet with your friends! Read More

PorchDrinking’s 2019 Oscars Drinking Game!

February 22, 2019 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

The 91st Academy Awards is sure to be one for the ages. Every single step of the event has been marred in some form of controversy ranging from what awards will be shown, who is going to host and if we’ll even get musical performances this year. There’s usually one faux pas from each year from the classic La La Land/Moonlight mix up from two years ago to Jack Nicholson’s reaction to Crash winning Best Picture. Who knows what will go to go down at this year’s broadcast?

Whatever happens this year, one thing is for certain is that a drinking game will make the experience even sweeter. So whether you’ve obsessively followed the nominees or you saw only five movies in a theater as per the national average, the Oscars should be fun for you too!

The 2019 Academy Awards will go without a host this year (the first time in 30 years), but that doesn’t mean they shall go without beer. As the finest in film-making are popping bottles of Champagne to celebrate their Oscar wins, beer-loving viewers can enjoy these brew pairings fit for this year’s Best Picture nominees. Who needs a nervous comedian to tell jokes when you’ve got a glass of a quality beer to sip?

Oscars 2018 | Red Carpet BINGO

March 3, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

This weekend, the stars will be out in Los Angeles to celebrate the 90th Academy Awards. The ceremony starts on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. Pacific). But starting at 5 p.m. Eastern (2 p.m. Pacific), E! will bring you all the red carpet coverage you could possibly want – and then probably another hour or two after you’ve had your fill.

This year’s red carpet coverage will be a bit different. Not just because the forecast in LA is calling for clouds and rain. There’s also the fact that E! has a couple scandals on its hands (Catt Sadler left the network over pay inequality, and Variety has reported on sexual misconduct allegations against red carpet host Ryan Seacrest.) And in the era of #TimesUp and #MeToo after the amazing reporting on Hollywood’s epidemic of sexual harassment and assault… there’a a lot more on people’s minds than who they’re wearing.

Pop Culture Week in Review: 1/10 – 1/16

January 16, 2015 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

While summing up a week in pop culture, it can be difficult to sift through the abundance of gossip and trumped up fanfare that litters the entertainment news landscape. This week, let us ignore the tales of misbehavior and drama, such as Miley Cyrus posing nude for V Magazine, and Chris Brown getting his probation revoked, and instead let’s focus on the actual medium of TV and Film. There are so many trailers to debut, not to mention the announcement of Oscar nominees, that we may as well take one week to enjoy the final products that get us so hungry for news about the players.

Amarcord – La Putena

February 14, 2013 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

It’s February and that means, it’s the beginning of award-season. Since the 2013 Grammys have come to a close, we can all start getting over Taylor Swift’s uncomfortable attempt at a fake British accent, JLo’s risque mid-life crisis dress, and the return of LL Cool J. Ok, I was a little excited about the return of LL Cool J. Anyway, it’s time to move on and get ready for the Oscars. In honor of award season, I am introducing an interesting, yet delicious, foreign brew from Italy: Amarcord’s La Putena. This beer is named after the Oscar Award-winning film “Amarcord,” which was directed by the late Italian film director Federico Fellini, who won four Oscars during his lifetime. Read More

Oscar Nomination Predictions (UPDATED!)

January 9, 2013 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

In perhaps my least snarky PorchDrinking article to date, I’m going to take some shots in the dark and guess who will be nominated for the Academy Awards. PD is looking forward to bringing you some great Oscars coverage, but here now is one guy telling you what he thinks (and hopefully having something to brag about once nominees are announced tomorrow). I’ve marked movies I’ve seen with ***asterisks***, so you can know I’m not full of it. Watch nominations come out, then keep coming back to PorchDrinking.com for more Oscars coverage from our team of amateur pop-culture experts.

UPDATE: Oscar nominations were announced this morning (Thursday). A few surprises, especially in the directing category. I’ve added some additional commentary, partly in the interest of giving you the most information possible, and partly because I’m proud of how close I was in a lot of cases.

Below, I’ve bolded the predictions that were accurate.

TV Is Back! … I Didn’t Say Good TV.

This is actually my scaled back fall TV preview. I was lucky enough to participate in PorchDrinking.com’s first ever Google hangout, where our pop culture team discussed fall TV at length. I’ll spare you most of the things we said there and end my plug with that.
