PLAY: The Oscars Drinking Game on DailyEdge.ie

It’s a school night though, so probably best if you play with some minerals or refreshing water.

THE ACADEMY AWARDS are on this Sunday night, which can only mean one thing.

It’s time for an Oscars drinking game.

Obviously we at DailyEdge.ie don’t condone the over-consumption of alcohol, so we suggest you grab yourself some fizzy pop or a nice glass of water, and bunker down.  This is a marathon, not a sprint.

The rules are simple: we’ll start on the red carpet then get to the main event.

If you see any of the following, you must drink.
