This year’s crop of Oscar-nominated films is undeniably D.C.-centric. From “Zero Dark Thirty” to “Lincoln” to “Argo,” there’s lots to root for Sunday when the proceedings get underway. Whether you’re in the mood to celebrate with red carpet glitz and glamour or just in your pajamas, Academy Awards watch parties in the region are ready to accommodate. Here are four places to watch it all unfold:
Watch the Oscars on two large flat-screens, with specialty cocktails such as the “Honest Abe” and the “Red Carpet Cosmo,” as well as Les Miserableu burgers with blue cheese crumbles, all priced under $10.
Wear your PJs to this Oscar watch party at the U.S. Navy Memorial’s Burke Theater. In addition to watching the Oscars on the two-story big screen, the event includes drinks by mixologist Gina Chersevani, as well as snacks to munch on. Tickets are $50, but for $50 more, you get an open bar, a buffet, a hefty swag bag and passes to see the Oscar-nominated shorts.
Film critics Bill Henry and Tim Gordon host the DC Film Society’s annual watch party at the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse, featuring the Academy Awards broadcast on the big screen.
