How to win the Oscars

Oscars Pinterest

People don’t just watch the Oscars on TV—they also save and discover all things Oscar on Pinterest. 


Keep in mind that film buffs aren’t the only ones excited about the Academy Awards. Pinners have saved over 2.4 million Oscar-related Pins on a huge variety of entertainment content, ranging from movie quotes and celebrity photos to red carpet dresses and popcorn recipes. 


Ready to get in on the lights, camera and action? Here are 4 ways to Pin for the Oscars: 

  • Food & Drink: For folks throwing viewing parties, try creating boards with snack ideas and recipes, like BuzzFeed and Epicurious.
  • DIY: Grub is great, but no Oscar party is complete without favors and decorations. Check out how Brit + Co and Julip Made are helping Pinners host at home. 
  • Style: With 4.7 million red carpet Pins, it’s clear that Pinners love fashion as much as film. Entertainment Weekly and The Zoe Report both have curated boards with their favorite award-show looks. 
  • News: Movie lovers not only watch movies, they read about them too. The New York Times and Variety do a great job taking advantage of this by sharing behind-the-scene videos and articles about the 2015 nominees.

Worried that your content doesn’t fall into one of the categories above? Don’t be afraid to get a little creative and sprinkle in some extra movie magic, like Kansas City Public Library, which made a board of books that inspired movies, or Skyscanner, a travel search site that made a board showing where nominated movies were set.
