If you’re a fan of the annual Oscar awards show by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that will take place this weekend, you’ll want to check out the Oscar Backstage Pass app. Released last week, the app will show live behind-the-scenes video streamed from the red carpet, the Kodak Theater where the show will take place, and the Governors’ Ball held after the show.
Oscar Backstage Pass is a universal app for both the iPhone/iPod touch and the iPad. An internet connection is needed and users must be running iOS 4. The 83rd Academy Awards ceremony will start at 8:00 p.m. ET /5:00 p.m. PT on Sunday, February 27. It will be broadcast on the ABC network in the U.S. and a full list of broadcasters in other countries can be found here.
