Awards season enters the home stretch tomorrow as the nominations for the 81st Academy Awards will be announced at 5:30 a.m. (ET). Unlike last year, the nominations won’t be live-streamed, but video of them will be available on Oscar.com at roughly 6 a.m., along with trailers for each of the films. But Oscar isn’t entirely leaving video out in the cold.

Oscar.com will feature The Road to the Oscars, a hosted daily show that will cover all the events leading up to the events. Backstage at the actual Academy Awards ceremony there will also be a “Thank You Cam,” which will let long-winded stars continue their appreciation after they’ve been booted offstage; the “Backstage Cam,” offering exactly what you think a backstage cam would; and the “Press Room Cam,” capturing all the excitement of hearing the question “How does it feel to win?” being asked over and over and over.

The Academy Awards show happens on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. (ET).

  1. I think those are GREAT ideas!

    The Thank You Cam, in particular, for the long-winded people, but to be sure, some of them have great stories to tell, and I get upset when the “good talkers” get booted off. It was so great in 2008 when Jon Stewart called back Markéta Irglová, who co-won for Best Original Song (Falling Slowly from the movie “Once”). She deserved to get her time in the limelight.

    Hopefully all those CAMs will be able to be viewed for some time, even after the Oscars air.
