Our picks for Vancouver’s winning Oscar parties.

It’s Hollywood’s biggest night — as they say. The 89th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday, airing on ABC and CTV at 5pm. (Red Carpet starts at 4pm). Here are our top picks* for a little Tinseltown glamour here in Hollywood North.

*They’re all licensed ’cause watching +/- 19 hours of fake small talk, acceptance speeches and the comedy stylings of host Jimmy Kimmel isn’t nearly as enjoyable without a good, strong buzz.
