ABC Digital Launches Official App For The Oscars

The Oscars are airing on February 24th and to help you get excited about it, ABC Digital has launched the official Oscars app 2013 to support the event.

The app includes profiles on the nominees, as well as movie trailers for the films up for awards. It also includes exclusive photos and videos, including hosted specials on fashion, nominated films and actors. Users can play along and cast virtual ballots with the MyPicks tool to vote on their favorite films, actors, directors, composers, and costume designers.

On Oscar Sunday, the app will include more than a dozen live video streams of the event from the red carpet to backstage. The app is available for iOS and for the first time, it is also available for Android devices this year. It requires a U.S. Internet connection to work.
