The Emmys are tonight, and whether or not you love awards shows, a bit of alcohol sure goes a long way when it comes to getting through the three-hour celebration. Here’s the definitive drinking game for tonight’s ceremony!

  • Take a shot every time someone is wearing a dress.
  • Take a shot every time NBC bleeps out the word “Dinklage.”
  • Take a shot every time you share both a first and last name with one of the winners.
  • Regardless of who wins Guest Actor in a Drama Series, take a sip of your drink and say, “Aw, good for him.”
  • Chug for five seconds every time Manny from Modern Family somersaults uncontrollably down the aisle.
  • Take two shots any time the orchestra’s first chair violin plays an augmented fifth chord. If you hear a suspended fifth chord, finish your drink!
  • Take a shot right now for fun.
  • If at any point Aaron Paul mouths the word “bitch” into the camera, you don’t have to drink, but you can raise your glass in acknowledgment. It’s a little distasteful, but ultimately, we’re the ones who rewarded him for it.
  • If, during a commercial, a man extends his arm through the screen and asks you to join him in “The Realm Of Static Being,” do not obey. Take a shot instead.
  • Man, they better get the Robin Williams memorial just right. This isn’t a drinking rule, but it better be tasteful and reverent. The world is watching, Emmys.
  • Take a shot any time someone in the room laments out loud that Tina and Amy would’ve crushed this.
