Going for the Gold

Oh sure, you can make your guesses for the 2010 Academy Awards winners and toss them into that office contest, and then watch at home, hoping you win a double lunch hour. Or, you could walk a red carpet into a historic theater, watch the broadcast (as well as pre-show red carpet coverage) on the big screen and throw your guesses into a contest that will get you more of what you love--film. Red Carpet Crash, the MungleShow and BigFanBoy.com are combining forces to host the 2010 Dallas Big Gold Statue Awards Watching Party at the Lakewood Theater starting at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free, but VIP tickets are only $10 (available at Oscars2010.EventBrite.com) and earn you premium seating, a drink ticket and--this is worth it--complimentary Lone Star Beer for the duration. You can wear what you like, but no one will complain if you strut your best digs down the red carpet strewn with paparazzi...or if you wear your comfy pants because you are a. Serious. Oscars. Watcher. And don't forget to fill out your winners ballots. First place (most correct guesses) wins a pair of Star Passes to the Dallas International Film Festival (panels, screenings, star studded events and opening/closing galas!? Choose your winners wisely, friends). Other prizes (by category) include a bunch of DVDs you should probably go buy if you don't win them--just sayin'. Visit redcarpetcrash.com for more info.
