Oscars 2010: Academy Award Bingo Cards

By Liz Kelly

Get your big markers ready. (TWP)

Lucky you. Not only will you be able to spend Sunday night with me in a marathon online Oscar chat, but thanks to our fabulous design department we can all have a little bit more fun at Hollywood's expense with this year's brand spanking new Oscar night bingo cards.

Will Mickey Rourke again sport a regrettable outfit? Who will forget to thank his or her spouse from the podium? And who, pray tell, will be the first performer to go over his or her allotted speech time? Honestly -- who cares? As long as any of the above happen, you'll be well on your way to completing Oscar bingo.

We've provided three different versions so you can compete against friends, family and me. Download them now and I'll see you online Sunday evening, when we kick off our online Oscar party with full coverage of the red carpet hoopla at 6 p.m. ET.

Way to steal someone else's idea!

Googling "Oscar bingo cards" brings up almost 70,000 returns.

"Stolen". Right. This is a unique and precious idea that hasn't existed for years upon years, and been used by everyone from random party hosts to the Academy, which includes bingo cards as part of its "Oscar Party Kit". Keep working on that righteous indignation, it's fun to watch.

@ Bawlmer51

If it brings up 70,000 returns on Google, doesn't that mean it was someone else's idea?

But, it's no more "stealing" than writing a haiku in 5-7-5 format is stealing from ancient Japanese poets. Think before you call someone an idiot, moron.

Uh, no. You never heard of "independent invention"?

If there are 70K of them already, it's not stealing, it's called being unimaginative or uncreative or lazy or.....
