Hennessy’s Irish Pub Hosts Red Carpet Affair for Oscar Night

An Oscar statuette walks into a bar, and finds seven of his friends arguing about who will take them home on Oscar night.

“I say Steve McQueen,” announces the Best Director statuette.  “I loved him in Bullitt, and I’m really glad he’s making a comeback.”

“You idiot,” scolds the Best Actress statuette (who is always right).  “That’s not the same Steve McQueen.  You’re thinking about Steve McQueen the actor, who’s been dead for 34 years.  Didn’t you learn anything in film school?  Anyway,” she continues, “My money’s on Cate Blanchett or Meryl Streep for Best Actress, both of whom are very much alive.”

Best Actor chimes in.  “Meryl Streep has won, what, 27 Oscars already?  They’re not going to give her another one.  Same with Judi Dench.  Those two are done.  Now my guys are all Oscar virgins (except for Christian Bale, who won Best Supporting Actor for The Fighter in 2011).  My money’s on Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club.  Anyone who can lose 45 pounds for a role is worth a statue in my book.”

The newcomer, who has been silent so far, pipes up.  “You guys don’t choose the winners, you just get to go home with them, so all this conjecture is pointless and a waste of time.  I just stopped by to tell you that Hennessy’s Irish Pub is hosting an Oscar party on Sunday March 2, and that we should all be there to get the real scoop, as it’s happening, in real time.  What’s more, they are offering a prize for whoever can predict the most winners, and judging from the level of discourse around here, you guys are flat out of the running.  They are also offering prizes for the best dressed attendees, for which we are also disqualified, since all we ever wear are these stupid swords.”

Silence settles on the group as this new information sinks in.  The newcomer speaks again.

“The ceremony starts at 6, so we should probably get there around 5 for the red carpet interviews and photo ops.  And if you’re submitting a ballot, you’d better do it before the winners are announced, or those winners will be automatically crossed off your ballot.  Okay, so here it is in a nutshell:

  • Hennessy’s Irish Pub, Paseo Montejo between 41 and 43, Sunday, March 2.
  • Red Carpet ceremony begins at 5, Awards begin at 6
  • First prize for predicting the most winners:  Weekend getaway at Hacienda San Jose Pachul
  • Collect the official ballot at the door or print the one shown here and bring it with you
  • Enjoy!
