Weekend To-Do List: Oscars Edition

155113__stewart_l_1I’m not even going to ask if you are aware that the Academy Awards are on Sunday night (ABC, 8 p.m. EDT). You’d better be! Here are a few tips to keep your weekend as golden as Hilary Swank’s favorite bookends:

-In the spirit of shameless self-promotion — not to mention in the hopes of sweeping your Academy Awards party pool — check out EW’s Oscar odds.

-Already seen every major honoree on the big-screen? Then try investigating a few lesser-known gems from your favorite nominees.

-If you’re itchin’ to find out whether newbie host Jon Stewart (pictured) will be able to fill Billy Crystal’s shoes, this link might give you some indication.

-Once the big show begins, thwart your mid-ceremony ennui with a game of Oscar-night bingo.

-Don’t forget to visit EW.com during the Oscar ceremony for up-to-the-minute live blogging from Josh Wolk (he of Amazing Race TV Watch fame). Gary Susman will be backstage at the Kodak Theatre talking to all the winners. (And I’ll be doin’ a little somethin’-somethin’ on the telecast’s best and worst moments too).

-And finally, stock up on Chicken in a Biskit. As I’ve said before, nobody likes a party without at least one high-calorie treat. And I mean nobody.

    I just read an E! online story about the Oscars, and here’s something that made me laugh laugh laugh.
    After all the revolting Robin Leachy press on the absurdly overstuffed, $100,000 plus goody bags the nominees and presenters will receive, the IRS is “reminding presenters and performers that “six-figure goodie bags…qualify as taxable income and must be reported on tax returns.”
    Hahahahaha the IRS – the great equalizer.
