I'm not a big football follower, but who can be opposed to a day of delicious nacho cheese dips, clever (and expensive) commercials, and a now-annual Puppy Bowl!? (Thanks, Animal Planet). It's even been proven that Americans consume more on Super Bowl Sunday than any other holiday.
For the Oscars, however, I used to dress up, invite friends over, and force everyone to fill out their own prediction ballot—no matter how little we knew about the Coen brothers. I would eventually learn that there was a load of other movies to see that aren't formally recognized by The Oscars.

Whether you're betting on Super Bowl Squares or Best Cinematography—may the envelope bearers be with you.
