This is one of my favorite giveaways that we’ve ever done. This Oscars season, Heather and I have gotten really into Champagne Piper-Heidsieck, and have put together a VIP box of treats, to make your Oscars night a memorable and glamorous experience, even if just from your sofa. We’re thrilled to be able to give away one of these boxes to Fug Nation. (We’re going to have some other fun coverage here next week about what, exactly, the celebs get to eat and drink at the Academy Awards, and Governor’s Ball, so stay tuned. We are obviously always very curious about that subject.)


The box includes:

  • A Piper-Heidsieck Popcorn Ice Bucket
  • A $50 gift card to so you can get your own bottle. (It’s served at everything from the nominee luncheon to the Oscars themselves, to the swanky Governor’s Ball afterward; this is basically in service of allowing you to drink like Cate Blanchett.)
  • White Truffle Parmesan Popcorn, for maximum snackiness.
  • A MAC lipstick in Russian Red (which is my own personal favorite, thanks to many many recommendations from Fug Nationals), and a MAC nail polish in Diva Fierce.

THE TASK:  As always, I will pick the winner at random — just one this time, so cross your fingers. To keep it fun, please comment and tell us who you’d bring to the Oscars as a date, if you got to go.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you.  (Winners must be 21 or over.  Contest open only to residents of Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Florida, Louisiana,  Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington D.C, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.)
