week: Movie websites.
by visiting these three sites:
Oscar.com: The official
site of the Oscars, hosted on WABC, has lots of information
on the current nominees, plus, of course, previous winners,
trivia and more.
This is the best movie site for keeping track of movies and
learning about more than 500,000 actors, directors, etc.
This gossipy site has become one of the most popular movie stops
online. Find out in advance what's going on at movie sets and
what the buzz is.
of Bacon: You know a site called the "Oracle of Bacon"
(Kevin Bacon, that is) is going to have some unusual material.
Based on the "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" game (trying
to link a Hollywood actor to Bacon in the shortest number of movies),
the Star Links game allows you to connect any two actors or actresses
to each other. For example, I tried to connect Clint Eastwood
(one of my favorite Hollywood action hero) with Amitabh Bachchan
(Indian cinema's biggest star). They were connected in two steps:
Bachchan was in Lagaan (2001) with David Gant. Gant was in Firefox
(1982) with Eastwood.
