Oscars Bingo ideas needed

OK, so co-hosting an Oscars party this year and we have decided to do Oscars bingo cards. I have been perusing Oscars bingo cards from previous years and picked out some of the better space ideas and made a list, but I am definitely interested in some interesting suggestions any of you folks might have. I also figured this might be a useful thread for anyone else considering doing the same thing.

I want each space to consist of something that is likely/possible to happen but not guaranteed to happen. To that end, I don't want spaces for specific awards being awarded since that is a guaranteed occurrence.

I am also interested in some spaces that might be specifically catered to this year's broadcast but the list I have compiled below are more general items so far.

1. Someone wearing sunglasses indoors (Jack Nicholson or otherwise)

2. Speech pulls speech notes out of jacket/purse, etc. while in stage.

3. Crying by winner

4. Political statement in speech

5. Music cuts off winner's speech

6. Standing ovation

7. "God" mentioned in acceptance speech

8. Winner thanks The Academy

9. The "importance" of Hollywood is mentioned unironically.

10. A loser is caught on camera with look of obvious disappointment.

11. A foreign winner apologizes for his/her English.

12. Someone makes joke about the length of the show.

13. Winner apologizes about forgetting people

14. Winner thanks his/her spouse

15. Winner doesn't smile when name is announced

16. Winner initially attempts to exit stage in wrong direction.

17. Winner comments about the weight of the statue.

18. Winner puts on glasses in order to read acceptance speech notes

19. Five or more people go on stage to accept an award

20. Yellow/gold dress.

21. Green dress

22. Tuxedo with dominant color other than black

23. Winner tells their kids to go to bed

24. Someone on stage speaks with a French accent

25. Profanity from someone on stage (bleeped or otherwise)

26. Oscar statue is kissed

27. Winner honors another nominee in the same category

28. Movie trailer during commercial break

29. Car commercial during commercial break

30. Beer commercial during commercial break

31. Winner holds statue over head (entire statue must be higher than top of head)

32. On-stage hug (both arms involved)

33. Broadcast runs past 11:00pm

34. Reference to military personnel

35. "Honor just to have been nominated" or similar

36. Strapless dress

37. Thanks parents

38. Flubbed teleprompter read

Re: Oscars Bingo ideas needed

sounds boring.

How about you just fuck the other guy's wife (w/ his knowledge) when someone wins that he didn't think would win and just call it a day?

"10. A loser is caught on camera with look of obvious disappointment."

I wouldn't include this one, personally. The losers are usually only shown for about a second after the winner's name is called, and it could cause some debate in your group as to whether a "look of obvious disappointment" actually happened or not.

Re: Oscars Bingo ideas needed

Somebody comes on stage wearing a trash bag like Bradley Cooper in SLP.

A technical award gets a dumbed-down introduction, with an attempt at humor.

An animated character from a film makes an "appearance." This could be from a live-action film.

BTW, a French accent may be guaranteed if Jean Dujardin is announced as a presenter (for Best Actress, of course).
