Oscars iPad App Brings the Red Carpet to You

OscarsLights! Camera! iPad App! The Oscars are an exciting time for Hollywood and almost as exciting for those of us who love movies. The awards show doesn’t happen until February 26, but you can grab the iPad app anytime now and get yourself ready for that red carpet evening.

ABC Digital wants to make you an honorary virtual member of the academy with this app, giving you unrestricted access to “complete nominee lists, trailers, buzz worthy videos, hosted specials on fashion and nominated films and actors, and more.”

If you are a fan of the awards ceremony (or even one of us… the type that love to watch with friends and share a few libations along with our predictions), this is exactly what you need to supplement your evening (and the weeks beforehand as you fine tune your scorecard).

The Oscars® app promises an insider view with all of the information you need to be informed and ready for the ceremony itself. On the night of the awards, the real magic of the app will unfold.

Whether you choose to be the director or just sit back and enjoy the live broadcast held within the app, you will have access to more cameras than anywhere else with more views and more interviews (not to mention a backstage pass to the ultra A-list after party and the Governor’s ball). Imagine if you have this handy on your iPad while you are also watching on television? You’ll be the best informed movie-fan(atic) out there!

The only trick is that in order for that last bit to work, you will have to have an active Internet connection from a US (or US Territory)-based provider and be running iOS version 4.2 or higher on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

You can download this app and get ready for the big night for free from the App Store!
