My wife and I have thrown an Academy Awards party for more than 14 years. I say "more than" because she, for some reason, doesn't count our first year. We've held the party 15 times. She thinks this makes it 14 years. Whatever. Mike has been to everyone of the parties. He has never won the Oscar pool. It is getting hilarious.
For some thoughts on how to throw a great Oscar viewing party and to see just how far my wife takes it, head on over to her blog post about the 2013 Academy Awards HERE.
