Oscars night is just around the corner. There’s approximately one more week to watch all the nominated films and place your bets in the office pool.

To help prepare you for the big night, “Dinner Party Download” co-host Brendan Francis Newnam joined the show to explain some of the do’s and don’ts of throwing a successful Oscars party.
