March 7, 2010

I'm sure by now you've all heard the news: Alec Baldwin is hosting next years Academy Awards (with Steve Martin).

I really, really, really want to have an Oscars party, but Jay doesn't think we know the right kinds of people. People who a.) want to get dressed up in their Oscars best to come to a party at my pet hair filled house and b.) wouldn't be offended when I shout things such as "Shut the fuck up. Alec is speaking!"

So yeah, save the date and RSVP by February 1.

Tammie said...

Of course you were my first thought when I heard that news.

I've only been to one Oscar party and it was a blast. You should definitely have one. And...I'm guessing your friends will know to shut the fuck up when Alec is speaking.

I'm in. I went to one once where this woman was asking everyone, "what are you wearing?" as you entered their home. It was a hoot. We were not dressed up - that is what is funny. It was a pj party complete with popcorn and candy type party like watching movies at your home. Even hubby wore his pj's. Great fun.

We all had a ball and it was one of Billy Crystal's time of MC'ing.

I also read Tammie that Alec will be getting a new love interest on 30 Rock....Julianne Moore is what they are hinting at. Or is it really Tammie?

Tammie said...

mag: you are probably right.

peggy: a pajama party idea sounds great!! although i love the idea of getting gussied up, pjs are probably more my style.
and thanks for alec/30 rock tidbit. i didnt know that. (i try to refrain from googling his name more than once a week.) although i did just watch the trailer for his new movie, that i have to admit gave me an almost orgasmic amount of joy.

I have a friend who used to have an Oscar party every year. She would do an Oscar pool a few weeks in advance, then announce the winners at the party. All the food had movie-themed made-up names and everyone dressed up. It was really fun. Although i'm surprised you aren't just renting yourself a hotel room for the night so it can be just you and Alec...

Tammie said...

daphne: obviously that's what id prefer....

(you know me well.)

I heard about this on the radio on my way to work this morning...of course I immediately thought of you :)
You should have the party...that would be a blast.

Mari said...

Fun! Wish you lived closer!

Barefoot_Mommy said...

I would totally come if I lived closer and I wouldn't be offended at all when you told me to shut up. LMAO

Penny said...

I don't share your love of Alec Baldwin but I do love cursing and drinking so if I lived closer I would be there!

Tammie said...

i didnt want to share him anyway!

Not Your Aunt B said...

Totally fun. You should do it. Make it more of a making fun at the Oscars party (with no making fun of Alec)...horrible sequined dresses, tux t-shirts, cheesy acceptance speeches, and of course, getting drunk with bad papparazzi (aka blackmail) photos. We've been to a few of those and they were a blast!

Apron Thrift Girl said...

I've be there in a heartbeat.

Dani said...

When I heard this you were, of course, the first one I thought of. Actually you were the only one I thought of. I'd put on my finest (translation: I wouldn't wear my Sloggers) and party at your pet hair infused home.

Maria Rose said...

Oh man, I think you should host an Alec Baldwin party...then people would know what they were in for.

Daphne said...

If you can't rent a hotel room, you should at least have everyone come to the party wearing an Alec mask.

hester said...

I'll be there and will not be offended when you say "Shut the fuck up...Alec is speaking". And I'll bring Kipper to add some cavalier dog hair to the mix.

Crystal said...

Oh man. I would totally be there is all my Oscar regala. Why must we live so far apart!

'Shut the fuck up, Alec is speaking' is exactly why I love you so much. That made me smile and giggle.

Betts said...

I'd so go! I promise I would speak when He was speaking, and I wouldn't say anything if you started kissing the tv. It looks like you know the right people... they just don't live in the right place.
