The Oscars offers red carpet and backstage access online
Tuesday 22 February 2011
The 83rd Academy Awards will offer a new online experience for US audiences during the Oscar live telecast and before the show on February 27 beginning at 5 pm PST/7 pm EST.
Red carpet celebrity arrivals start at 3:30 pm PT/6:30 pm ET, offering fashion previews and interviews with nominees and presenters prior to the awards presentation.
During the telecast, the Oscar Access Pass will allow an online audience to go backstage to see winners speak to the "Thank You Cam" and continue their acceptance speeches. It will also provide a look in the press room as winners are interviewed by journalists.
Also during the telecast, users are given views behind the scenes in the production truck and backstage, with 24 cameras throughout the venue.
A premium experience allows viewers to watch the Kodak Theatre receptions, hair and makeup room, and a glimpse at the Governors Ball, the Academy's official celebration following the awards show. The upgrade to access costs $4.99.
The Oscar Backstage Pass App offers also an insider's view for iPad, iPhone and iPod users, downloadable at the App Store for $1.
The 2011 Academy Awards, on February 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, will be televised live on ABC Television and in more than 200 countries worldwide.
