The 3rd Annual Death to Hollywood Oscar Contest Giveaway!



With the Oscars this coming Sunday, Hollywood is all abuzz with excitement and road blocks! My entire purpose in life for the next week will be trying to avoid Hollywood Boulevard since they are setting up for the show and bringing all of their A-list,  self-absorbed, money-making, inconvenience with them. But let’s face it, this is what Oscar night is all about; receiving awards for being over-paid and pretty. Is it wrong to win an award for that? If so, I don’t want to be right.

If this is your first time participating in the contest, just read the rules and answer the questions below.

Here are the rules:

Each day there will be two Oscar-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. At the end of the week a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Saturday 3/1. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook. The prize is always a surprise and Hollywood/Oscar related.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons)

2. You have to live in the United States because I don’t ship internationally, sorry.

3. You have to answer two Oscar related questions as a comment on the blog.

4. It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen any of the nominated movies or if you get the questions right.

5. No purchase necessary (not that there’s anything to buy… legally I have to say it)

Is that simple enough for you?


1. Who is your Oscar prediction for Best Director?

American Hustle (David O. Russell)

Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)

Nebraska (Alexander Payne)

12 Years a Slave (Steve McQueen)

The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese)

Have you seen any of these movies? I saw them all but Gravity and Nebraska. Did you like the direction?

2. If you were forced to live in a place like Nebraska, would you do lots of methcrystal meth to keep yourself busy (apparently crystal meth is plentiful in Nebraska)?

Fun Fact: The guy who invented Kool-aid is from Nebraska.

Bonus question:

3. When was the last time you drank Kool-aid? kool

Be sure to comment to enter and have a great Monday!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    Hi Celeste!!!! (and Kris)
    12 Years a Slave… “No” and the last time I drank Kool Aid was when I was about 10. I will try and comment something funny or witty next time. xoxo

  2. Susie McKernan says:

  3. Susie McKernan says:

    (continuation of previous post) hate typing on an iphone

    of college baseball

    koolaid- had some this past summet

  4. Mary says:

    Good to hear from your blog again! I think American Hustle – it was a really good movie. Plentiful or not, no to the crystal meth – I wouldn’t want to look like her! Kool Aid is not that bad if you use vodka as the base…

  5. Brian says:

    1. Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)
    2. No meth for me.
    3. Probably in elementary school.

  6. Josephine says:

    “Twelve Years A Slave,” no, no meth but definitely more alcohol and I haven’t had Koo-Aid since I can’t remember when. We usually had Yoo-hoo and regular soda. (If you can believe it, we actually had a guy come to the house who delivered a case of soda once a month.)

  7. Stephanie says:

    So. I think 12 Years a Slave will win fo sho. And who wouldn’t do meth to look like that hot chick? Pretty sure the coworker who stole money from my wallet on multiple occasions is on meth… Although now that she doesn’t have access to my wallet, I don’t know how she’s funding her habit. Well, I don’t want to know, actually. Also, it’s been so long since I had Kool-Aid. So so long.

  8. Natalie says:

    1.I only saw American Hustle and I don’t think it will win– too long for me anyway.
    2. I want to say no but I’ve also never been to Nebraska..
    3. I can’t remember the last time I drank it but it makes a pretty fun hair dye

  9. Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón) and he deserves the honor for the most beautiful film I have ever seen. I’ve seen all of the best picture nominees and most of the other nominated films in other categories. I loved all of the films, but Gravity was surreal for me. I really felt like I was there in space and a few times I couldn’t breathe.

    Say NO to drugs. You can lose your chompers to meth. I’ve never tried drugs and I don’t plan to. I love myself.

    The last time I drank Kool-Aid was in high school.

  10. Kris says:

    1. 12 years a slave–Steve McQueen
    or Wolf with Martin S.
    2. Yes for meth…. so I can look as good as he/she 🙂
    3. Kool- Aid…yum!

  11. John Huerta says:

    1.Gravity Will Win the Oscar For Best Director-Alfonso Quaron.

    2.I Have Been to Nebraska But No it’s No Meth For me.
    3The last time I Drank Kool-Aid Was When I Was in My Teens.

    1) Alfonso Cuaron – “Gravity.” You asked if they have gravity in Nebraska. I doubt it. It seems like something you’d have to drive to Kansas for … As Stephen King said in “Children of the Corn,” Nebraska “is proof that Heaven and Hell are both full and the dead walk the earth.”

    2) I would only do Crystal Meth if it would turn me into the Kool-Aid Man. Because I like the idea of being mostly liquid … yet also being able to bust through walls. Wait, I have had weekends like that.

    3) Last had Kool-Aid in either late 2013 or early 2014. You know getting the sugar content right in Kool-Aid is probably more difficult than 90 percent of the cocktails you could make.

  13. Kal says:

    1. Steve McQueen. Partly because older Academy voters will think he’s the Steve McQueen from the 60s and 70s, and vote for him because they loved him in The Magnificent Seven.

    2. If I were forced to live in Nebraska, I think I’d keep myself busy trying to undermine the federal authorities that somehow turned Nebraska into a forced relocation camp.

    3. Hmmmm….post-Jonestown, I haven’t really been big on Kool-Aid.

  14. Paul e says:

    I would sell whatever gets you off meth:) and smoke a bunch of weed!
    drink the stuff all the time
