EVEN OSCAR IS GOING DIGITAL, so why wait for co-workers to fill you in on pre-ceremony awards gossip and hype? Start handicapping the nominees early with E! Online, a Web site (www.eonline.com) that lets movie buffs scan a complete list of nominations and download ready-made ballots for the office pool. Or visit shop.eonline.com's Oscarama, devoted entirely to Oscar-abilia such as T-shirts and videos of every available Oscar-winning film.
On oscar.com, Hollywood fans can flip through pages of weekly updates on what the stars will be wearing and take an insider's look at rehearsal weekend.
Still not satisfied? On Oscar night, oscar.com will broadcast live video of the red-carpet arrivals, transcripts of acceptance speeches, and backstage interviews--stuff you can't get on TV. So this awards night, why not pull out the Jiffy Pop and hunker down in front of your computer?
