Throughout the year, our own Kevin Carr has been dedicated to one thing: drunkenness. He has been slowly turning each and every one of our readers into a stumbling drunk fool with each week of movie releases. And as we close out our coverage of movies in 2007, we take a look back at some of his most ridiculous drinking games — some of which will definitely lead to death if done correctly. Also, as a bonus, we’d like to offer up a special drinking game for Awards season, which can be played while watching any movie that earns an award nomination between now and the Oscars.

Enjoy! And please for the love of all that is holy — have a safe and Happy New Year!

The Award Season Drinking Game

While we all like the holiday season in the multiplexes because of the cool-ass blockbuster films being released, there are a few of us who also like the arty flicks being rolled out for award season. But those movies can be a bit hard to get through. So why not make them easier with a couple drinks.

These rules should apply to most of the award films of the season. The only thing we request is that you only play this game with films that have actually received a nomination. If you feel that you’re not drinking enough, make up some more rules, or check the site for your movie in our existing Drinking Games.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t laugh too hard if it’s a serious movie.

TAKE A DRINK IF…
A character speaks with an accent
You feel the movie is running too long
Any social issue is addressed
An actor has been in a nominated film before (one drink for every nomination)

TAKE A DRINK WHEN YOU SEE…
A cameo
An “Oscar clip”
Nudity
A recognizable special effect shot

TAKE A DRINK WHEN SOMEONE SAYS…
“God”
“love”
overwritten or quirky dialogue
any curse word

CHUG YOUR DRINK IF…
You see a long, pretentious tracking shot
Your movie was not released in your city prior to December 31
Your movie hasn’t made more than $100 million
