Skinnygirl Shows You How to Throw an Oscars Party
Yes, we're stereotyping a bit here at Clean Plate Charlie, but women right now are preparing for the biggest evening in television...the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
On Sunday, February 24, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will host the awards, hopefully channeling Stewie Griffin the entire time.
We can't wait to see the gorgeous gowns and the faces of the losers when the camera pans to them as their names aren't called to the stage.
Skinnygirl Cocktails, the pre-mixed, low-calorie alcoholic beverages created by former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel, is making sure we're set for the Oscars with a host of cool stuff.
In what's clearly a spoof of Superbowl mania, the Skinnygirl Facebook
page invites you to start a celebrity fantasy league where you and your
friends can attempt to guess which starlets will shine on the red
There are also downloadable ballots for Oscar night
predictions, printable labels that can be slapped onto bottles of booze
(presumably Skinnygirl brand) to be used as mock trophies, and our
favorite -- a downloadable Skinnygirl step-and-repeat so that you can
twirl your way down your own private red carpet.
If only a real red carpet will do, Skinnygirl is also giving away a trip to Hollywood to attend the both the Fashion Police: 2013 Academy Awards Special and the E! After Party.
Add in a host of low-cal drink recipes, and you've all set to root for Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway to take the win.
Here's a drink recipe, compliments of Skinnygirl to get you started:
1 1/2 parts Skinnygirl cucumber vodka
2 parts club soda
splash of cranberry juice (no sugar added)
Build into a tall ice-filled glass.
