If you’ve got an Android phone, iPhone or Kindle, download the Official Oscars® App and get ready for this Sunday night’s big show! Not only does the app give you exclusive content like backstage interviews with your favorite actors (Meryl Streep! Daniel Day-Lewis! Hugh Jackman! OMGIjustpassedout), you’ll get Oscar party tips, red carpet fashion extras, video of rehearsal and – most importantly for a lot of you, I’m sure – a chance to pick winners with your Facebook friends! (There’s an online version of “My Picks” as well.) A friend of mine runs an Oscar pool every year, but she just had a baby and is putting the finishing touches on her first book so she can’t do the pool this year, so “My Picks” should do nicely in her stead for those of us who would otherwise miss out.
My 7-year-old loves watching awards shows with me, but this year is the first year she’ll have seen any of the films being honored at The Oscars besides those in the animated feature category, so she’ll be psyched to check out the special interviews with the stars of her current cinematic obsession, Les Miserables. Can’t wait to see who wins!
Go here now to download the FREE app, and don’t forget to watch The Oscars Sunday night, February 24th starting at 7 pm EST on ABC! I’ll be live-tweeting the live show, so follow me on Twitter for jokes and genuine joy when my favorites win gold!
