2020 Oscars Bingo
Can you believe 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 did love Ford vs Ferrari, so I’m voting for that one!
One quick note – the Oscar bingo cards HAVE been updated for the 2020 nominees, but the photos in this post are still from last year’s awards. I didn’t see the need to redo all of the photos. Cards look exactly the same with the new nominees!
Many of my favorite movies were shafted this year when it comes to nominations (hello Avengers: Endgame and Frozen II), but I’ll still be watching like I do every year!
I love watching the Oscars either on my own, with my family, or with girlfriends who come over! We play bingo, vote for our favorite winners (get printable 2020 Oscar ballots here) and talk about some of these fun Oscar trivia questions!
I created these Oscar bingo cards specifically for this year’s big event with the nominees from most of the categories – just excluding a few.
How to Play Oscar Bingo
There are three different ways you can play this Oscar bingo game.
1 – See or Hear
The first way to play is to cover up spaces when the celebrity or movie is mentioned/shown on camera.
This is the easiest version and will get spaces covered the fastest because movies are mentioned and shown way more often than people actually win or talk about the nominations.
2 – Award Only
Another option is to have people only cover up the space when a celebrity or movie is actually mentioned as part of an awards nomination – e.g., the nominees for Best Picture are XYZ.
3 – Winner Winner
Finally, the most challenging option is to have people only cover up the spaces when that celebrity or movie actually wins an Oscar.
If you’re doing this 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!
One caveat to version #3 – it’s possible that no one will bingo depending on who wins. If that’s the case, figure out how you’re going to determine a winner or just put all the cards in a bowl and pull out a random winner at the end of the night.
Decide 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 candy stars to cover up spaces when it’s time.
The first person to get five in a row horizontal, vertical, or diagonal wins! Free space counts!
