Watching the Oscars can be exasperating. When a film that should have won didn't, or an actor who shouldn't have won did, the temptation to scream can be enormous. But screaming at a TV in an empty apartment is an exercise in futility, and can't be good for relations with the neighbors. The boisterous, opinionated, and generally sarcastic have a better option: the Up the Oscars Benefit Bash. It's an Oscar party where "the little guy strikes back by yelling stuff at the big screen." Organizers say they will provide free refreshments, but due to the length of the show, attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks as well. They're also encouraged to bring "high heels and a bad attitude." We'll probably skip the heels, but will definitely bring the attitude to root for American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, or anything but The Wolf of Wall Street for best picture.
