Prepare MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Shiny-and-Chrome Popcorn for Your 2016 Oscar Party

It’s the biggest night of the year for movies and we’re ready to celebrate! Gather the troops and root for your favorite nerdy nominations by throwing your very own geeky Oscars party. Themed treats and fancy decor are at the ready, so bring on the shiny and chrome statues!

Furiosa, Max, and the War Boys will have to scrape together their Sunday bests for your upcoming Oscar party, because Mad Max: Fury Road has an impressive 10 nominations at this year’s Academy Awards, second only to The Revenant.

What a lovely day to make a batch of candied shiny-and-chrome popcorn served up in a makeshift War Rig. Riding along side, fill glasses with Citadel Guzzolene, a.k.a. champagne, and add DIY metronome poles complete with teetering War Boys hanging from the rim. Each sip promises to take you closer to Valhalla.

Follow these party ideas on Oscars night and your guests will surely ride eternal!
