Viewers will be able to stream the entire Oscars show for the first time this year. ABC.com, the ABC Player app, Hulu and Hulu Plus will provide the show for a limited time this week. The show will also be available via ABC On Demand.
The Oscars will be available to stream beginning Monday, Feb. 25th at 6:00 a.m. EST. through Wednesday, February 27, at midnight EST. "Our goal is to give fans as many ways to enjoy and engage with the Oscars as possible and this will provide another great opportunity for them,” said Christina Kounelias, the Academy’s Chief Marketing Officer.
Viewers can also watch behind the scenes and additional footage on Oscar.com's “Backstage Pass.” There are 20 plus exclusive live cameras placed on the red carpet and backstage of the Dolby Theatre providing every angle of action for fans to see. Fans can enjoy the action in “Watch” mode, or control the cameras they want to see in “Direct” mode. Hosts included in the Backstage Pass show are: “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd, television personality Cameron Mathison, “Modern Family’s” Rico Rodriquez, Entertainment Weekly’s Jess Cagle, and PEOPLE’s Peter Castro.
Pass will also include the Red Carpet Digital Lounge Jake Whetter, POPSUGAR’s Alison McNamara and Mashable’s Brian Hernandez. They will report on the most popular trends on social media using multi-media monitors run from Samsung Galaxy tablets and smartphones.
What did you miss during the Oscar's show? Not much really, just a surprise performance by Barbara Streisand, a celebration of Movie Musicals with Jennifer Hudson and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Adele singing the Oscar nominated theme song from Skyfall-no big deal right?
