The 85th Annual Academy Awards air live on ABC tonight at 7 p.m. EST — and yes, they’re even live for the west-coasters, so make sure you’ve got your champagne popped by 4 p.m. PST.
The live broadcast will allow everyone, from coast-to-coast, to live-tweet, so beware of spoilers if you’re counting on your DVR to catch the show!
If you’ve grown accustomed to extra digital content, Oscar.com is live-streaming extra content during the broadcast, for fans who are into getting a second-screen experience. “Whether it’s a jaw dropping musical performance, a memorable acceptance speech or that joke that hits, Oscar.com will bring viewers select ‘Real Time Oscar Highlights’ almost instantly after airing live,” ABC promises in a press release.
Oscar.com will have 20 live cameras strategically placed on the red carpet and backstage at the Theatre — and fans can either sit back and watch all the action, or actually control the action. You can also participate in an interactive “My Picks” ballot.
And if that still isn’t enough for you, you technophile, snag the iPad or iPhone app from iTunes to get even more live content!
