Awards season is well underway, with the Oscars ceremony set to take place next month on February 9th.
Movie buffs are in their element, knee-deep in prediction bets over who will win at the Oscars, who will be snubbed, who will make an inappropriate joke etc.
Ireland’s own Saoirse Ronan is in the running this year. Her fourth time to be nominated, she’s up for her portrayal of Jo March in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women…but I’m sure you already knew that.
If you find yourself caught up in the whole affair and are looking for an outlet, then the Oscars-themed table quiz at Pálás is the one for you.
Galway’s resident arthouse cinema and cultural space, it’s your one-stop-shop for all things movie-related in the City of Tribes.
Taking place on the night of the actual ceremony, team registration starts at 7pm with the quiz kicking off shortly after.
The event listing on Eventbrite reads:
“Ninety-two years of the Academy Awards means a lot of different winners, nominees, and categories: Best Pictures, Best Actors, Best Actresses, Best Directors, Best Screenplays…
So, it would be best to get down to our Oscars-themed table quiz and put your hard-earned movie wisdom to the test to have a chance at winning some awesome prizes!”
You’ll still bag yourself some complimentary grub, even if your niche movie knowledge isn’t up to scratch.
All organisers ask is to keep your speeches short and sweet:
“We would ask that the winners’ speeches be kept nice and short. The orchestra that we hired to play you off charge by the note”.
€20 will cover a team of four and you can buy tickets online (here) or for a fiver per person at the door – subject to availability.
