If you're looking for proof that gambling makes things more interesting, you need look no further than the Oscars. I avoid this awards ceremony whenever possible, which isn't hard since I rarely see new movies and have no interest in celebrity culture. Usually I'm not even aware the Oscars happened until I start seeing movie trailers boasting how many Oscars they'd won. But this year I'll be watching as part of an Oscar party. I'm not sure what an Oscar party entails, but if anyone shows up in gold body paint things are going to get weird. No, for this event, the thing I'm looking forward to is the Oscar pool. How do you set one up? I have no idea, but where there are people with money and boring TV to watch, I will find a way.
