2018 Oscars Bingo
Even though the Oscars are later this year than normal, it’s already time to get parties prepped for this year’s big night! I’ll be the first one to admit that I haven’t seen all of the best picture nominees this year, but I have seen a handful of them, and it was definitely a good year for movies! Tons of war movies this year intermingled with my favorite movie of the year – The Greatest Showman!
I love watching the Oscars either on my own, with my family, or with girlfriends who come over! This year we’re going low key but if you’re hosting an Oscar party, make sure to check out these Oscar party ideas! They’re perfect for this year’s big night! And I have a handful more from my favorite bloggers at the bottom of this post you don’t want to miss!
I created these Oscar bingo cards specifically for this year’s big event with the nominees from the major categories as well as a couple of my favorite categories like best original song, best animated feature, and best animated short (come on Lou!) And I made 20 different unique cards you can use for your party so not everyone bingos at the same time!
How to Play Oscar Bingo
There are two different ways you can play this Oscar bingo game.
First, you can have people cover up the spaces when the celebrity or movie is mentioned/shown on camera OR you can have people only cover up the spaces when that celebrity or movie actually wins an Oscar. If you’re doing the latter version of the game, make sure people know ahead of time so they can choose their card based on who they think is going to win. It definitely makes things trickier and more fun!
Just note that I didn’t put the names and movies on the cards in any order, so it’s possible that none of the best actor nominees for instance are on one given card! The printable file also includes a blank version of the cards if you’d rather let people look at the nominee list and choose what to put on their cards! So I guess really there are three versions!
Decided which way you want to play and tell your guests. Let people choose their cards (or just hand them out if that’s easier) and give them markers like these candy stars to cover up spaces when it’s time. The first person to get five in a row horizontal, vertical, or diagonal wins!
