Actress Cate Blanchett is picking up style ideas for the upcoming ACADEMY AWARDS from an unusual source - the internet.

The 35-year-old screen star has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator, but she admits she's so far been forced to search for her glittering gown for 27 February's (05) ceremony in cyberspace.

She says, "I'm going through that horrendous pressure of choosing a frock.

"I can't go to Paris or Milan (with the kids), so I shop on the internet."
