Oscar bingo: 2011 edition

Update: Looking for 2013 Oscar bingo? Get it right here.

The Academy Awards draw nigh! Due to popular demand, I've updated Oscar Bingo for 2011. Download and print twelve different bingo cards. Give one to each of your party guests and race to see who can mark off five squares in a row on February 27. The annual disclaimer still applies: My psychic powers are weak, so I have no idea if it will be possible to win ten minutes into the telecast, or if there will be a winner at all. Good night, and good luck.

Dang it, I pasted in the old link and thought I'd fixed it before anyone clicked it. You're too speedy! Try it again.

Grandma G said...

I had a blast with this last year. We used them at a party and people who never even watched the Oscars was playing and having a great time. Thank you for doing them again! I love the categories!

I was looking for ways to round out our Oscar party, and then found this. It's awesome--sooo much nicer than the official version. Thank you!

Hi Jessica - Hope you don't mind but we posted a link to your Oscars Bingo on our facebook page, facebook/mazehomestore. MAZE is a home furnishings store in Winnetka (we'd love to have you come visit) and online (mazehome.com), and we are sponsoring a gift suite at the Oscars this week, so I thought our followers would love your game. We are also giving away one of our celebrity swag bags ($150) and a leather handbag ($575) by Chicago designer Maggie Wilson. Your readers are welcome to enter, just need to post a comment on our facebook page by 5:00 central on Tuesday, March 1 (random drawing). Don't mean to advertise on your site and hope you can moderate this out if you don't approve, just wanted to thank you for the game and give your readers a chance to enter. Thank you for your constant inspiration! sara@mazehome.com

Hi!

I created a page that automatically generates as many pages you need and makes each one unique.

http://hiimandy.com/projects/oscars-bingo/

If you're tech savvy, you can download this zip and add custom spaces to the array (around line 47)

http://hiimandy.com/projects/oscars-bingo/oscars-bingo.zip

It'd be best to use Firefox or Chrome when you print it to get the page breaks right.

Hope this helps someone!

Hi, just wanted to let you know how much my 13-year-old and her friends enjoyed your Oscar Bingo cards last Sunday. It was her first Oscar party (mine too!), and she didn't really know how long and uneventful parts of the evening can get. Also, being young teens, they hadn't seen all the movies, and weren't even familiar with most of the actors. But they LOVED spotting Oprah, Buzz Lightyear, et al, hearing presenters flub their lines, telling their kids to go to bed, etc. It really livened up the proceedings, especially during the less exciting moments... Thank you for making our first Oscar party a success! Skimom3

Jess said...

Wow, that's great! Thanks for the story! :)

HAO: Thanks so much for the BINGO and ballots. They were a huge hit and already looking forward to next year. Perhaps a Red Carpet version?

Hello,
I'm a French blogger and my subject is parties, adults and children, friends and family.
I have adapted your gorgeous idea with some bingo cards about our French ceremony. We call it "Cérémonie des César". I made hypothesis with French films. I Thank you very much for giving us all this. Best. Claire.
