Most Oscars events are invite-only, but there are still a few you can crash even if you don't have any connections or a nominated film.
Many celebs who can't get into the Dolby Theater for Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony will attend the Night of 100 Stars Oscar Viewing Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The event includes dinner and an open bar, but tickets are limited (and very expensive).

While his music industry cohorts were patting each other on the back at the Grammy Awards last night, Kanye West spent the weekend in Brazil with Kim Kardashian and Will Smith.
After last night's Emmy Awards, nominees, presenters, and winners were invited to visit the Emmys Gifting Suite, where companies like Aquaswiss, Tivo, and even Black & Decker were happy to exchange their products for some publicity.
Clare Danes, Damian Lewis, Hugh Bonneville, Tina Fey, Glenn Close and Ed O'Neill all took advantage of the gifting suite to score free gold and diamond pendants from the Hot Rock Jewellery, toys made by Beanpatch, New Balance running shoes, Matrix One Tablets, and lots more free swag.

Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin, Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer may have won big last night at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, but Oscar or not, all of those nominated will be taking home a swaggy gift bag filled with $62,000 worth of goodies. As usual, travel freebies are responsible for many of those zeros, and as we do every year, we're highlighting them.
The 2012 gift bag isn't near as awesome as those of the last two years, which included items like Virgin Atlantic status, Virgin Galactic space flights, a Montana ranch experience and 4 days at a Maldives resort, but stillthe celebs aren't doing too badly for themselves with these items:
Once again, AMC Theatres across the country are presenting all nine Best Picture Oscar nominees on the big screen in two full-day marathons.
The event is designed to let movie fans catch up on all of the best picture nominees just in time for the Academy Awards, which will take place on Feb 26.
On Saturday, Feb. 18, participating AMC theatres will feature four of the nominated films: “War Horse,” “Moneyball,” “The Tree of Life” and “The Descendants". The one-day pass costs $30.
Though she looked calm, cool, and collected at last night's Emmy Awards, Julianna Margulies had some drama getting from New York City to Los Angeles on Saturday.
During a red carpet interview, the Emmy winner told Ryan Seacrest, "There's a long story of how I got here, our flight was canceled, my husband (Keith Lieberthal) and I ended up in coach, sitting in the middle, away from each other...but we made it, and now we're having a good time." In an attempt to pay The Good Wife actress a compliment Ryan said, "You look as if you flew first class" and Julianna quickly replied, "no I like to fly coach...but y'know what, that should be everyone's problem."

While the rest of us were scrambling for days trying to rearrange delayed flights out of New York and New Jersey, The Jersey Shore cast got a free ride out of the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday, courtesy of MTV.
The network wanted the cast in Los Angeles for Sunday night's VMAs so badly that they chartered a private jet as area airports were canceling commercial flights thanks to Hurricane Irene. "We had to get out here for the VMAs," Vinny said after arriving in L.A. "MTV did whatever they could to get us out here. We wouldn't miss it for the world."

Okay, we have a problem. When did crashed airplanes become cool?
Last night during the MTV Video Music Awards, Winner of best R&B video Nicki Minaj premiered her newest video, Fly, featuring Rihanna. We were like, oh coolit's called "Fly," so let's see. And then about two seconds into the video, we noticed she's dancing all around the charred shell of a Boeing 747. What the heck?
According to MTV News, the concept for the video revolves around the apocalypse, which Minaj and Rihanna have survived. They're in a neighborhood, complete with suburban homes, except there's now the addition of burnt and crashed cars, the 747 andcrazy as this soundssome sort of rocket or space shuttle.

Now that the Academy Awards are over and the celebrities have fled to their vacation homes to bask in the glory of a owning a statuette or wallow in self-pity for losing, we can talk about what everybody at the Oscars got regardless: the swag bag. Winners, losers...everybody gets gifted with free stuff! Last year's gift bag was valued at $91,000; will this year's top it?
The answer to that is YES, and in only the first item! Natalie Portman, et al., were handed a chance to go to space with Virgin Galactic along with a scale model of the craft. The orbital space flight gift is worth $200,000. We wonder who'll redeem that voucher? Colin Firth in spaaaaccceee...
Even though the Academy Awards have all been handed out and some celebrities are back to wearing their pajamas, you might still need a little more of an Oscar fix over the next few days. There’s no Oscar Museum yet—they’re working on one—but you can always visit the home of the award ceremony at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. There won’t be any famous faces or thankfully any hosts—was it just us, or were Franco and Hathaway just awful?—but there are plenty of the golden statues.
The theatre is still hard at work cleaning things up after all of the weekend’s festivities, so you have to wait to take your tour until this Saturday. Once the tours open back up, you can expect a 30-minute tour through the facility where you can stop to in the George Eastman VIP Room and other spots where the in-crowd hangs out before and after the show. If you’re lucky they might even let you walk out onto the stage, but just remember not to start in with your acceptance speech.
If you missed any of the ten films nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award, AMC Theatres is giving you one more chance to see them all on the big screen.
More than 100 AMC Theatres around the country will show all 10 movies, split between the next two Saturdays, February 19 & 26. Though you won't be able to bring in your own food, they will be giving everyone a gift card to use on concessions throughout the day and they will also being holding movie-related contests between movies.
