Ah, the Academy Awards. The gowns. The glitz. The glamour. And the guzzling we'll be doing on our couches this Sunday night.

We'll be glued to the TV, waiting for the special moments that make the Oscars unique. And luckily for us (and our guests), we've found a 2015 Academy Awards drinking game that will make the show even more entertaining, called The Theory of Drinking (get it?) from the folks at David Atlanta.

It's a printable board game, and its simplicity will make getting sloshed perhaps a bit too easy: Just choose which character you'd like to be (an enraged Michael Keaton in Birdman, perhaps, or Her Royal Highness Meryl Streep in Into the Woods). Then advance and hand out drinks (or take one yourself) when certain inevitable scenarios come to fruition: a winner thanking God, for instance, or someone tripping up the stairs to the podium (sorry, J. Law). You may get Whiplash (heh) from circling the board and doing a bunch of shots, but that's sort of the point.

Of course, we recommend you put out a spread to soak up all the booze. And even if you don't "win" the game, remember: It's an honor just being nominated.
