Oscar Watching Party 

When: Sun., March 7, 5 p.m. 2010
Phone: 389-6607
Price: Free

The producers of the Academy Awards admit they're trying to give viewers more reasons to watch this year. They've upped the number of Best Picture nominees from five to 10 (including blockbusters like Avatar) and nearly enrolled Sacha Baron Cohen as this year's host until the Academy nixed the idea. Too "unpredictable." Still, there should be a few surprises, so join the Colorado College Film Union for hors d'oeuvres, desserts and a free Oscar Watching Party beginning at 5 in the Worner Campus Center (902 N. Cascade Ave., 389-6607). And if you're craving a dose of broad comedy (sans Cohen) beforehand, take the family to see local clown Jim Jackson in the NASA-themed A Nose for Space at the Manitou Art Theatre (1367 Pecan St., themat.org). Tickets are $10 for shows at 1 and 3. — Jill Thomas
