THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: Tinseltown is polishing up as it prepares to hand out dozens of golden statuettes, after they found them in the trash of course, this weekend.
LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: If they can hang on to them that long, they will give them out.
CNN Interactive correspondent Allison Tom joins us with a preview of where you can find all the Academy Award action on-line.
Allison, what's up?
ALLISON TOM, CNN INTERACTIVE CORRESPONDENT: That's right. Hi, Natalie and Lou.
Millions of people will be tuning in on Sunday to the Internet to find out what kinds of things that they can find out. The first that we are going to go to is Oscar.com. Here you can find a whole listing of all the different nominees. You can find the latest in the fashion trends, and you can also find out what kinds of things are going to be happening and who will be there.
On the site, you will also find out on Sunday, you can watch a live ceremony here as to who is coming in. So you will actually see the red carpet arrivals.
What you are seeing right now is actually last year's event, but of course on Sunday you'll see Sunday's event. So you can watch all of the arrivals who are coming in on Sunday, and see what they're wearing, as well as what times they're getting there.
You won't actually be able to see the entire cast in the Internet, that will only be televised. But what you can see afterwards is that you will be able to find out what kinds of comments people have said after they have won their awards and they'll give you a backstage preview on the Internet.
Another site, if you would like to cast your vote as to who some of the winners might be, is to go to hollywood.com/oscars. Here the site will give you a whole listing, again you can find out the latest news, you can find the backstage -- and also, like I mentioned here -- you can find a number of different games that are interactive for you to participate in, and you can cast your vote as to who might be some of the winners for either actor or for the best picture. And if you're interested in some of the short films, you can go to atomfilms.com. This site lists 10 of the nominated films for short film category. You can find some of the animations, as well as some of the short films, and you can also see any of the directors' comments in their director's chair area on this Web site. So here you can see the interview that they might be talking about.
And there is a number of different sites that you can go to, but these are three of the top ones.
Natalie, back to you.
ALLEN: Can you say Oscar fever? Thanks, Allison.
