No matter exactly how you plan to celebrate the night of the Academy Awards, we have a Top 10 list that will fit in with your style.
- If you’re a DIY foodie type, well, more like if you’d like people to think you are, the Vancouver Province has 10 simple but dazzling party foods you can make yourself
- If you prefer to leave the planning to other people and throw yourself into watching and/or partying — and if you’re in Toronto — look into BlogTO’s top 10 Oscar parties in Toronto for 2015. Some of them are even free.
- If all you want to do is see how much Oscar history trivia you know, CBC News has 10 questions from Academy Awards gone by in an interactive quiz.
If you score low enough on that quiz (never mind how we know this), you’ll get a result saying you’re obviously there just for the gift bag. So why not have a look at what’s in those bags, here at Hello. It includes a gift card for the Rocky Mountaineer; once again, Canada reaches deep into Hollywood.
CTV reminds us Canada has produced scientific and technical Oscar winners, and looks at whether it’s actually changed their career trajectories in any way.
CBS has a downloadable ballot for your party — or workplace pool, if people where you work are into that kind of thing. We guess it’s better than playing the lottery with your Oscar bets, which the BC Lottery Corporation will actually let you do, though that’s just our opinion . . .
