The Golden Globe games

Embark in this time-honored tradition and join us for a toast ... or two ... or three

By Deanna Barnert
Special to MSN TV

The Golden Globe Awards show is known as Hollywood's most unpredictable party, and with good reason. It's the one event of the year where the stars get to just hang out together and, er, "have a good time" -- or perhaps more accurately, the one time we regular people get to watch celebrities get drunk on TV! You can thank Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin for the laughs, not to mention the awkward moments. The Rat Pack hijacked the Globes back in 1958, turning the once typical award show snore-fest into the boozy, TiVo-worthy fiesta it is today. In recent years, we regular Joes have made a tradition of piggybacking on the party by coming up with our own at-home drinking games. Just because we didn't get an invite doesn't mean we can't join in on the fun!

Whether you're watching with your crew or celebrating on your own on Sunday, Jan. 13, MSN TV has created the perfect Golden Globes drinking game to help you throw a few back with the A-listers, while poking a bit of fun at them at the same time. With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting instead of Ricky Gervais this year, we can't just drink to the insults, so we had to get a little bit more creative.

The rules of the game are simple: Take a drink if ...

Meryl Streep wins. All is right in the world. We're not playing favorites, but this is the Golden Globes, after all. What would the awards show be without one of her inspiring speeches?

Another win for "Homeland"? Now that's a shocker. Not.

Connie Britton gets some gold. There's an upset we won't complain about. Cheers to country music and southern divas!

Hottie alert: Are you all about Bradley (Cooper)? Or is it Sofia Vergara who catches your eye? If your Hollywood crush shows up on the screen, you know what to do!

A winner is truly surprised and gives a Sally Fields-worthy "You really like me!" speech -- this deserves a chug for humbleness. But if it seems fake, two swigs only!

The winner thanked someone you've never heard of and doesn't explain.

You haven't seen two or more of the nominees in a category? How embarrassing.

You hear a scripted double entendre on par with "Saturday Night Live" sketches like Colonel Angus? That's so Tina Fey.

Cameras catch Julianna Margulies, Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington, Judi Dench, Jon Hamm or any celeb in the audience throwing back a drink. You deserve one too.

Someone stumbles, slurs or commits a drunken party foul a la Elizabeth Taylor's famous Best Motion Picture Drama presentation.

You have no idea what that rambling winner just said or what he or she was talking about.

A winner pulls a Christine Lahti/Renee Zellweger and gets caught in the ladies room.

You're still smarting over the "Mad Men," "The Walking Dead," "New Girl" or [insert your favorite TV drama here] snubs during the Best Television rounds.

Your favorite American badass, vixen or hero from TV or the movies takes the stage and speaks with a lilt, brogue or foreign accent of any kind.

You catch an FCC finger bomb or bleep.

Someone plugs an upcoming project. Cheap move.

Someone creates an awkward moment onstage. Did he or she really just say that?!

Alec Baldwin or a Golden Globe winner gets political. (One drink if you agree with the message, two if you don't.)

If you see an awareness-ribbon color you've never seen and have no clue what it is for. If you feel like it, you can look it up later.

And of course, show some respect during the memorial montage: Pour one out for Michael Clarke Duncan, Whitney Houston, Dick Clark, Larry Hagman, Sherman Hemsley and all of the film and television stars we lost in 2012.

The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
