2014 printable Oscar bingo and ballot


My 2014 Oscar ballot and bingo game are done! Get set to enjoy Sunday's Academy Awards with friends. It doesn't matter if they watch movies or know who the actors are; anyone can play bingo and it's a good excuse for a party.

Download the Oscar ballot PDF
Download the Oscar bingo PDF

Save the PDFs to your computer, open them in Adobe Reader, and print.


To use the ballot: print one for each guest and have them mark their predictions before the show starts. The person with the most correct guesses wins.

To use the bingo cards: 20 different game cards are included in the PDF. Print out the number of pages you need for your guests. Then fan out the sheets, close your eyes, wave your hands over them, and put your finger on a card. This one is meant to be yours. Your party guests can fight over the rest of the sheets, but they're not going to win. You are. As you all watch the telecast, the first person to mark off five squares in a line wins. It could be a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line. (This year I removed the center "free" space to make you work a little harder.)

Movie theater gift cards, boxes of popcorn, candy, or little Oscar statuettes from a party store make good prizes.

Has anybody tried to play with friends long distance? You could each claim a page number to print out and text when you get a bingo.


Like every year, a disclaimer: Maybe someone will get a bingo ten minutes into the telecast, or maybe your group won't have a winner at all because my psychic powers have failed this year. Best of luck!

Eniko said...

Jessica, this is amazing! However, when I try to print out, the page is not centered on the paper, but more to the right & the bottom is cut off. Any suggestions?

Jessica Jones said...

In your print dialogue box try checking an option to "center" the page. And then if your printer is still cutting off part of the page because it needs really wide print margins, try checking the "fit to page" option. Are you printing from Reader?

Thank you for these, I am doing a post on the Oscars and I am including a link here for my readers!

Kelsey Watson said...

Thanks again very much for another great bingo card!!D Can't wait for sunday :D

Ben said...

I'm here every year for this. You're the best.

Unknown said...

Really appreciate your Oscar bingo.
We've used them for some years now and it brings lots of fun to our Oscar night. Plus it helps to stay alert and awake at 4am, along with the fruit-salad which is one of the other traditions at our oscar nights.

Thanks
Lisbeth

I completely forgot about the Oscars until my 13-year-old reminded me just now. I rushed to your site and was so happy to see that you've made the ballot again! Thank you!!

Julia Torrente MorĂ³n said...

Hey! I used your ballot last year and it was so much fun (and also I WON!!! YAY), so obviously I'm using this year's one as well! I'm from Spain and my parents don't speak English, so I made a translated version of your ballot (https://mega.co.nz/#!I8VGSQTJ!l98S8F8VuOZ1iAfdjLukx6TktlfpJQDMQpki65uoLAk). Thank you very much! x

Cat said...

I love this (and linked to it since I was writing a post about it anyway!). I'm going to play against some online friends via Twitter. Thanks for the fab idea!

monique said...

I want to thank you as our family looks forward to this every year. My teenaged kids want to spend an evening with me!! Thank you for putting this together and emailing us the link and providing us with a wonderful family night.

Jessica, thank you for making ballot again! You are a winner! And the Oscar goes to you! xo, Katy

Brigette said...

We used to have live Oscar parties but changed to an online one last year so that we could have overseas friends join us. And although we don't play the Bingo online, we do play it here at home while we watch. We also always put a link to it for anyone else who would like to do the same. The only thing I would suggest is to make the "commercial airs" more generic for those of us who don't live in the U.S.

Thanks for doing this again!!! Great :)

Jessica Jones said...

You're welcome!

Dianne Put said...

Last night's Oscars were... boring. To say the least. Your Bingo and ballots were a god send! Kept the night exciting and upbeat. Thank you so much for all your efforts.

Flor from Nordic Days Blog said...

I was thinking that maybe I shouldn't be a quiet reader this year :) So thanks you, you've helped to make our Oscar night a success, third year in a row now. The only reason we in Europe are able to stay awake at six in the morning ;) Thanks :) -- Flor

You are a seer.. (or do you have inside information on the oscar's setup and organization?)
I was at an independant theater and gave out 15 our 20 sheets to strangers. It was fun! I liked how almost everyone yelled "bingo" during the Superhero segment!

destoo said...

For the "sprint advertisement", we substituted it for any generic canadian cellphone ads. (and there were none. haha)

Jessica Jones said...

Ha! I love your comments, guys! So interesting to hear what happens with these!
