The Academy Awards are always exciting, from the red carpet fashion to the meme-worthy moments. But like most award shows, everything's more fun when you spice things up a little bit.
Whether you're betting against your friends with our printable Oscars 2017 ballot or drinking yourself silly with our official Oscars drinking game, these party activities are guaranteed to make watching the award show bearable — even if they run over (and they always do).
