Is that why you watch the Oscars?

What’s the key to a good Oscars party?

You have a few weeks to figure it out.

The Academy Awards show is Feb. 24.

I know it is mostly about the movie clips and looking at attractive people. But how do you keep partygoers from talking during parts of the show you actually want to hear?

Possible reasons to watch the Oscars

A) Cleavage. B) Trying to guess who/what will most freak out red state conservatives. C) Film clips. D) The chance to learn of a documentary you might not have known about. E) Lots of talk about dresses. F) Watching the losers show that they really can act. G) Cleavage. H) The chance to be reminded that though you have long thought your own industry is incredibly self-congratulatory, it can't really hold a candle to the wonderful folks saving the world through motion pictures. I) Cleavage. J) That rare well-done acceptance speech. K) Chance to see the latest in plastic surgery. L) Other.
