Organizers are hurriedly completing the finishing touches on the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the 85th Academy Awards premiering tonight at 8PM. The rest of us are readying our Oscar-themed cocktails so we can survive the never-ending event and walk (ok, crawl) away mostly unscathed. We’re counting on host Seth MacFarlane for unscripted hilarity. In the words of RuPaul: “Good luck, and don’t f**k it up.” You’ve agonized and argued over your ballot predictions and the Oscar shocks, snubs, and surprises, but when the red carpet rolls out, we hope you’ll settle in with our official 2013 Academy Awards drinking game. Try not to hurt anyone or anything, and join us here tonight as we live blog the ceremony. … Read More
We’ve been squirmy with anticipation for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story: Asylum ever since the announcement was made that season one star Jessica Lange would be reprising a role in the FX series.
This time around she’ll be playing the formidable nun, Sister Jude. Lange stars alongside returning alums Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson inside the mental institution, Briarcliff Manor. The now abandoned hospital was a former tuberculosis ward purchased by the Catholic Church in 1962. James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes, Lizzie Brocheré, Chloë Sevigny, and Ian McShane are amongst the newcomers joining them. We can’t wait for more over-the-top scares, pervy encounters, and dysfunctional drama.
To add to the insanity, we’ve created our official American Horror Story: Asylum drinking game, complete with recommended cocktails. Grab a glass, and say a few Hail Marys before heading past the break to play along with us. … Read More
The 38 winners of the 71st annual Peabody Awards were announced this morning, and among those being honored for being “the best in electronic media,” we were thrilled to see a bunch of great new TV shows (Portlandia, Game of Thrones, and Homeland) alongside longtime favorites like Parks and Rec, The Colbert Report, and of course, Jeopardy! The winners pool also includes CNN’s coverage of the Arab Spring, HBO’s gut wrenching documentary about the legacy of genocide in Rwanda, and PBS’ fascinating look into the life of Charles and Ray Eames, The Architect and the Painter. See the whole list of Peabody recipients after the jump, and give yourself a gold star for each of these programs that you’ve watched (or in some cases listened to) and enjoyed, you smartypants you. … Read More
All across Hollywood, things are a-flutter: Gray hairs are being dyed, “escorts” are being arranged, gowns are getting last-minute alterations, meals are being skipped, nominees are trying to decide whether to leave that sonofabitch agent of theirs out of their acceptance speech (5% of net? You tryin’ to bankrupt me, Murray?). Yes, kids, it’s Oscar time.
The Academy Awards Ceremony is this weekend, with plenty of red carpet gawking and awkward interviews at 7pm EST and the big show at 8. If you’ll be watching the show (as we will) and drinking (as we certainly will), we humbly offer up our official 2011 Academy Awards drinking game. Enjoy at your own risk — and make sure to join us here at tonight as we live blog the ceremony. … Read More
In the past, Flavorpill has brought you drinking games for some of our favorite shows, from True Blood to Mad Men to Glee. But even Don Draper would admit that there has never been a TV series that needs its own drinking game quite as much Skins. MTV’s American take on the controversial British series — which features teens doing drugs, having casual sex, and occasionally committing felonies – premieres tonight. We know that, in the spirit of these wild young things, you (and by that we mean, of course, those of you who are over 21) will want to be pretty intoxicated while watching it. Read the rules to our game after the jump, and be advised that hangovers tend to worsen as you age. … Read More
[Editor's note: This post was originally published on July 30, 2010, and has been updated for getting your buzz on during tonight's finale.] While watching True Blood last week, we had an epiphany. The entire show is about drinking. Vampires drink from humans. Humans drink from vampires. And don’t even get us started on the werewolves… So we wondered, if literally all of the characters are drinking something, why aren’t we? After the jump, check out the Official Flavorpill True Blood Drinking Game®, watch the preview of the second half of Season 3, and feel free to write additional rules in comments. … Read More
Still undecided about whether you’re watching the Emmys on Sunday night? Our friends at Vulture are predicting an epic showdown between the Goliaths (such as 30 Rock, Mad Men, and Lost) and the Davids (like Glee, Modern Family, The Good Wife, and Nurse Jackie), and we totally agree. We’d also like to suggest that like any other major sporting event, enjoyment of this awards show showdown will only be increased by your inebriation.
In that spirit, we present Flavorpill’s Official 2010 Emmy Awards Drinking Game. Join in, but be warned: We are not responsible for how you feel come Monday morning. … Read More
When Bravo TV’s reality series Work of Art: The Next Great Artist debuted in June, we wondered if it was a show with a future. All it took was one episode, though, and the proof was in the pudding (or, more accurately, in the paint): with its vast array of characters ranging from the boring-as-wallpaper Amanda, who was the first person eliminated, to Miles, the pretentious, OCD shoe-in for a winner, we were hooked. With things coming to a close tonight, we’re going to need a stiff cold one to make it through the nail-biting season finale (featuring celebrity guest judge David LaChapelle), wherein we’ll discover which of the remaining three contestants will win a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum. Raise a glass with us, then, and join in our Work of Art Season 1 Finale Drinking Game. … Read More
At long last Mad Men is back, and we’re looking forward to the return of the best reason for cocktails on a Sunday night (other than work on Monday). Now we can find out what it would be like to run your office out of a hotel room (like Suite Life of Zack and Cody, but with more cigarettes and adultery). And to celebrate the season four premiere, we’ve created a Mad Men drinking game. Not that you weren’t planning to throw back a few already, but because everything is more fun if you’re doing it competitively. Haven’t you read The Fountainhead like Bert Cooper told you to? … Read More
This Sunday marks the two and a half hour Lost finale extravaganza, and we at Flavorpill are feeling a little conflicted. We’re giddy with excitement (think of all the answers we’ll FINALLY get!) but we’re also sad because we’ll no longer have an excuse to ogle Henry Ian Cusick every week. So to combat this ambivalence, we’ve devised a drinking game for our fellow Losties to both drown our collective sorrows and reward us for having the patience and tolerance to stick with the oh-so cryptic show until the end. But be warned: this game might make your liver hate you forever. So grab a case or two of Dharma beer and peep the Official Flavorpill Lost Finale Drinking Game® rules after the jump. As always, feel free to suggest your own additions in the comments. … Read More
