Plan your “Moneyball” Oscar party now!

13 Comments

“Moneyball” was nominated for several Academy Awards, and over at the website Buzzsugar, they give some advice on how to throw a “Moneyball”-themed Oscar party.

The upshot:

  • Serve beer and peanuts!
  • Wear baseball jerseys!
  • Decorate the room with gloves, caps and memorabilia!

I wonder what these captains obvious suggested when “Revolutionary Road” was nominated. That would have been a party!

I shouldn’t snark at them, though. At least they’re positive. More positive than my sabermetrician friends and I. Our plans for rallying around “Moneyball” on Oscar night: making arguments about how box office gross is a far better indicator of movie quality than actually winning the Best Picture Oscar due to the larger sample size of the ticket-buying public compared to the Academy.

Take that, “The Artist!”
