Bottoms up! New rules for the Golden Globes drinking game
MANILA, Philippines – What sets the Golden Globes apart from other red carpet events? Cocktails.
Each year, the brightest names in Hollywood gather in designer couture accessorized with sparkling jewelry, and drinks in their hands. The Golden Globes may be one of the most respectable award-giving ceremonies in Hollywood, but with liquor available for the stars' consumption, who knows that mayhem may ensue.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who are set to return as hosts on Sunday, January 12 (Jan 13 MNL), deceided to extend entertainment to folks watching from home through a drinking game. This year, US television's top comediennes have added several new rules to the game, said The Hollywood Reporter.
"Any time you see a gown with sleeves, you're going to drink. Any time they cut to Tom Hanks for a reaction shot, do five push-ups and you will be ripped by the end of the ceremony," said Fey.
"Every time I drink, everybody at home should drink," added Poehler.
Ever the comedienne she continued, "And if Bryan Cranston speaks, everybody has to do a little bit of meth. Just a touch, because that's all you need, just a touch."
Add those to last year's rules, and maybe a few of your own:
- Drink any time an actress cries in a speech.
- Drink any time you see a person actively not listening to someone onstage.
- Drink any time someone says, "I didn't prepare anything!"
- Eat a meatball sub any time someone thanks Harvey Weinstein.
- Take off an article of clothing any time they show Judi Dench.
But as they say, everything in moderation. Best Actor nominee Leonardo DiCaprio says 3 drinks are enough.
"You don't want to go above 3," he told MTV News. "Two takes the edge off; 3, you're going up onstage and doing something silly." – Rappler.com
