Drinking games became a lot more exciting after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler devised their own drinking game for the 2013 Golden Globes. This year, the funny ladies are back-- for the third time-- to host 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. Awards show are already entertaining, but what better way to get involved than sloshing a few cold ones back? After all, the celebrities get to do it, so why don’t we? Plus, things are a little more comical with the aide of booze.
In past years, Fey and Poehler shared their drinking games with The Hollywood Reporter, but this year they appear to be leaving viewers on their own. For those who would still like to continue to drink and watch the Hollywood Foreign Press Association pick their winners, continue reading. Anytime a celebrity does one of the following, take a sip of your beer or wine, or a shot of your favorite liquor. For those under age or prefer not to drink, take a sip of a milkshake or "shot" of a shirley temple.
It’s a live show and there’s no edits. There are bound to be a bunch of circumstances where a reporter or celebrity says something they probably wish could be edited out. Whether Giuliana Rancic words a question painfully awkward or-- gasp-- Meryl Streep fumbles over her words, take a sip.
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, the clumsy girl who won the hearts of millions, is not up for any awards at the Golden Globes this year. In her honor, since she famously tripped on her gown when she accepted the Oscar for Best Actress, and continues to make endless faux paus on the red carpet, take a shot whenever a celebrity stumbles, trips or falls.
Celebs spend hours and who knows how much money getting ready for these glamorous Hollywood events, and then to some of our delights, there’s a wardrobe malfunction of some sorts. Host Tina Fey even suffered a mini-accident of her own at the 2013 Golden Globes. Any time there’s a wardrobe malfunction, take a shot.
Here’s an easy one. For those who want to get a good buzz going, take a sip anytime someone says thank you. If you want to get to work on-time Monday, you might want to take a small sip.
The recognition that comes along with winning an award can be pretty emotional, and celebs are known to shed a tear or two when they claim an accolade. Anytime someone cries, take a shot.
Tina and Amy are real life best friends, which could be one of the reason these ladies do such a spectacular job hosting the Golden Globes. Any time they make you wish you had a friendship like theirs, or are grateful for the already spectacular one you have, take a sip.
