And the Oscar Goes To…


Whether you’ve managed to see all the best picture contenders by now or not, you know you’re going to watch the Academy Awards this Sunday night.  It’s also inevitable that you are going to have strong opinions on the winners, Billy Crystal’s jokes, the length and boringness of various segments, and, of course, the red carpet fashion. Sure, you can take the festivities in from your couch, but wouldn’t it be more fun to discuss it all with like-minded friends at one of the many Oscar-viewing parties taking place at a variety of Brooklyn’s best venues? There’s something for everyone this year: oenophiles can enjoy themed snacks and cocktails at the Brooklyn Winery; comedy buffs can head to the The Bell House for a screening hosted by Seth Hertzog and featuring topical tweets by the comedians of; serious film aficionados can don costumes and enter trivia contests at Nitehawk Cinema; cheese lovers can dig into fondue at Bar Halyards; if you want to pile into a photobooth and document your own Oscar fashions, head to Mullanes; and sideshow fans can watch the envelope openings at the Coney Island’s Freak Bar. The awards ceremony officially begins at 8:30pm, but you’ll want to get to your destination early to catch some of the red carpet arrivals.
