Oscar.com is pulling out all the stops with their online pre, during and post-Oscar coverage. Last week we looked at their "Road to the Oscars" and now they announce new online features that will give fans the chance to follow their favorite stars and get as much access as they can stomach to the show, behind-the-scenes and post-awards celebrations.

Designed as a companion to the live Oscar telecast, Oscar.com's "Second Screen" experience will offers coverage/access to everything from nominations morning to post-awards celebrations for online viewers. There will be a Backstage Cam, and Thank You Cam, Control Room cam and Press Room cam, each offering a different perspective on the awards. You can also pay for premium "All Access" in which you can track your favorite stars minute-by-minute and use a "360 cam" to choose and control multiple cameras for the Red Carpet, Awards ceremony and the Governors Ball on February 27th.
