If you really want to gage your status in Los Angeles, Oscar night is the perfect way to do it. To celebrate the Academy Awards this month, I have provided a handy list to let you know exactly where you stand in this town, based on where you are when you watch the Oscars.
#7 Watching it alone with a pint of Haagen Dazs
#6 Watching with friends or family.
#5 Watching at an Oscar party run by straight people
#4 Watching from an elaborate Oscar party, hosted by gay dudes
#3 Watching from a star-studded party, filled with drunk and angry B-listers
#2 Watching from wherever, and scoring an invite to the Vanity Fair post-show party
#1 You're at the Academy Awards
I started as a #7, but have social climbed to #4...and counting.
