Celebrity 20 Questions Party Game

Celebrity Twenty Questions is a great party game that is easy, fun and thought provoking!

This game is fun to play at Oscar or Hollywood themed parties.

To Play:

The person starting the 20 Questions game will think of the name of a famous person. The other guests can ask up to 20 "yes" or "no" questions to try to figure out the name of the famous person.

Play continues until each person has had a turn to field twenty questions.

After everyone has had a turn thinking of the name of a famous person, whoever correctly guesses the most names is the winner.


Give the initials of the celebrity as a clue at the start of each round - this will make the game a bit easier.


I think it can be a really good idea to set rules/limits on who your celebrities are at the beginning of the game. Otherwise you'll get the "I didn't know we could do (insert type of celebrity here) celebrities!" Save yourself some trouble and set some ground rules first.

Some ideas of "types" of celebrities could be:

  • Living Celebrities
  • Dead Celebrities
  • Actors (TV, Film, Stage?)
  • Movie Characters
  • Musical Artists
  • Visual Artists
  • Writers/Authors
  • Dancers
  • Reality Stars
  • Sports Figures
  • Historical Figures
  • Local Figures (your school, community, church)

Celebrity Twenty Questions at an Oscar Party

This could be really fun!

If you are playing this game at an Oscar Watching Party, one suggestion is to use characters or actors having to do with the films from that year, or perhaps do Oscar winners and nominees from the current and all previous years. There are plenty of celebrities there to choose from, and some will be very famous and others will be more obscure!
