Feeling a little down at the prospect of putting on a classy new cocktail dress just to watch Sunday's Academy Awards in your living room? While there aren’t a whole lot of Oscar events around town, we’ve got the goods on a few solid options — and the lack of parties is all the more reason to check out CL’s Oscar coverage.

Prepare mentally for the showdown and check out all five Best Picture nominees in a single day at the AMC Best Picture Showcase this Saturday.

Oscar Nights® America - Atlanta, Atlanta’s only official Oscar party, features cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dessert, as well as a silent auction, cigar bar and WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore as emcee. Proceeds benefit the Center for Family Resources, which helps low-income families find employment, education and housing — so the warm and fuzzy feelings won’t solely be the result of Hugh Jackman on the big screen.

Women in Film and Television is holding a slightly more laid-back party at STATS. With five bars and lots of TVs, STATS is a good place to relax and network while watching the festivities. There’s also an Oscar prediction contest with prizes.
