Planning the Perfect Oscar Watching Night

The Oscars are right around the corner, and if you are a fanatic like me, you’ll want to be prepared come Sunday night!! Whether you are DVR’ing it for later, or hosting all your gal pals for a fun night of red carpet watching, you will want all of these necessities come Oscar-watching time! I’ve put together a little list of what you need this Sunday night in order to maximize the fun!


It’s the end of the weekend, and all the indulgences are going to stop come Monday morning, so why not ring in the end of the weekend with some awesome pig-out-worthy food!? My go-tos for watching movies and awards shows are below (hint hint: popcorn is a must).

The best part about staying in and watching the Oscars from the comfort of your own home is you can get cozy! This includes sweatpants or pajamas, slipper socks, messy bun, a big fuzzy blanket – whatever you need to be at your most comfortable! The best kinds of nights are ones where you can relax, put your feet up, and criticize all the red carpet looks!

This is not super essential, but definitely comes in handy when watching the Oscars and staying in tune with what’s going on! Of course, you can always go to the Oscars Nominees page to grab a list of all the categories and nominees, but I find that looking for some fun printables are a great way to engage with your girlfriends, or even just keep tabs yourself!

With those three key things, you will have a GREAT time watching the Oscars! It’s always fun to gather together and watch with your girlfriends, but I’ve spent years watching with family, and even by myself when I don’t have time to watch live! However, it is a night to starwatch, pig out and have fun!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for a printable surprise…Oscar related of course!
