This year’s Academy Awards is, unfortunately, less than inspiring when it comes to diversity, so to get you through yet another very white male year of Oscars we’ve got the perfect drinking game. If you need a quick rundown of what’s going on tonight, here’s my take — a lot of white dudes are nominated for best director, the HFPA loved 1917 but I have no interest, and the true winner of the night will probably be whatever Billy Porter wears, if he attends. So pour yourself a quick glass of Johnnie Walker Gold or perhaps a Goldschlager soda (cue the Superbad nostalgia), and get ready to watch, drink, repeat.
Quick note: please take these rules with a grain of salt and drink responsibly. Just like the pirate code, these are guidelines, not laws.
