Picture yourself attending the 85th Academy Awards: You’re rocking the finest clothing, photographers clamor for your attention, and, of course, you win a fabulous award. Make this fantasy a reality (with only a few minor differences) at the annual Murray Hill Oscar Party. Hosted by local comedian Murray Hill at downtown landmark Joe’s Pub, this party encourages guests to dress like celebrities and gossip about Hollywood, and, instead of an Oscar, fight to take home the coveted “Three Sheets to the Wind” award for the most intoxicated guest. Get in on Oscar ballots, trivia, audience Fashion Police, and themed drink specials as Murray offers his signature witty commentary during commercial breaks. A variety of comic guests will also join in, performing nominated film reenactments, recreating the best and worst acceptance speeches, and generally making fun of everything.
