The 90th Academy Awards will happen next week, on Sunday, March 4, and you should definitely host a party!
The Oscars will be back for their 90th edition on March 4 with Jimmy Kimmel running the show! Even if you’re not the biggest cinema lover and haven’t been following the award season since the beginning of the year, you can’t stay indifferent to the Oscars. And, if like us, you are absolutely addicted to the Hollywood and cinema world, you want to plan the best Oscar themed party of all times, and make all your friends have a great time next Sunday, right? Here are some tips on how to do it with style…
1. Get your snacks
For any party to go right you have to nail at least two things: the food, and the beverages. Don’t make it too complicated, and go with a few simple, but delicious tapas. Don’t forget your vegan friends, and make both vegetarian and meat-packed snacks so that everyone can enjoy them and have fun watching the 90th Academy Awards!
2. Don’t forget the popcorn
And… an Oscar party is not an Oscar party without some popcorn… Add a few M&M’s in to make it even more fun! Gummy bears are also always welcomed to the menu, and your friends will be happy if you hand them individual popcorn buckets, because the truth is no one likes to share…
3. Oscar party? I thought you said ‘pizza party’
Our last food item is… pizza! If everything seems like it’s not going the right way, pull an Ellen, and make it a pizza party! Remember how back in 2014 Ellen genuinely ordered pizza to the actual Academy Awards and everyone loved it? Make sure to live up to Ellen’s legacy.
4. Don’t be shy on the champagne
First drink of the night… champagne! The most celebratory drink of them all, champagne is a must in any Oscars party. Go with a few nice bottles of champagne and let your friends know you mean business when talking about the Oscars 2018!

5. … and neither on the cocktails
