Host an Epic Golden Globes Party with Apartment Guide
Are you looking forward to the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 8th, 2017? From the red carpet all the way to the glorious sarcastic jokes, the Golden Globes is often seen as a precursor and prediction for the Academy Awards. If you’re planning a party for your friends in your apartment, there are several games you can play, as well as some great snacks and drinks to serve.
Game: Golden Globes Bingo
Sure, anybody can guess who’s going to win. But what about the stuff that goes on during the show? From drunken staggers to our free square featuring the Foreign Film You’ve Never Heard Of, our downloadable bingo game will keep you entertained even through the most boring of long speeches. Download Apartment Guide’s Downloadable Golden Globes Bingo Card.
Game: Guess The Winners
Who doesn’t love out-guessing their friends when it comes to the winner’s list? We’ve got you covered on that too. Visit People Magazine’s downloadable and printable ballot card to get in on the betting action. Maybe you’re far away from your cattiest friends? Why not try setting up a Facebook Group and inviting your friends to make their predictions, comment on red carpet disasters or just chat during the broadcast?
Drinks: The Fuel of the Party
Though January generally becomes a dry month for many people, an awards ceremony is the perfect excuse to kick up your heels and let your hair down. Obviously champagne is a must-have for any self-respecting celebrity, but you can also make beautiful cocktails out of it. Check out last year’s official Golden Globes cocktail, which features champagne, vodka, lemon juice and a red raspberry and tarragon shrub. Fancy!
Nibbles: Food Good Enough for the Stars
Though the press recently revealed the menu that the stars will be dining on during the awards, there’s no need for you to spend a fortune to have a good time. Keeping things simple will ensure you have time to spend with your guests (and not miss out on that all-important red carpet fashion fail). Make it easy by picking up some pre-cut veggies and dip, slice up some cheese with crackers and try a few easy-peasy hot appetizers from our friends over at Buzzfeed.
The 74th annual Golden Globes are on January 8th, 2017 on NBC at 8pm EST / 5pm PST.
