The Oscars are the second-biggest TV event of the year (after the Super Bowl), but this year they're truly a multi-screen event.
This year the Oscars are going high tech, a push to get a bigger, younger audience.
For the first time the behind-the-scenes and after-party of the Academy Award ceremony will be streamed live online to Oscars.comand ABC.com, giving movie fans a more in-depth experience on their laptops than they'd get on the flat screen in their living room.
And if you want more access you can buy it. A 99 cent IPad and iPhone "Oscars Backstage Pass"app includes live footage from cameras on the red carpet and backstage during the show at the Kodak Theater. A $4.99 "all access" app includes more live streams, including the governor's ball, and the option to switch between multiple cameras.
Those are the official Oscar apps, organized by the Academy, but there's really an Oscar app for everyone. If you want factoids about the nominees and films there's "Vanity Fair: Oscar Edition." Fashionistas can click on E! Network's "Live from the Red Carpet."Those two are free, while a game about Oscar trivia, "Obsessed with Hollywood,"will run you $1.99 on the Itunes store.
