Get Ready For The 2012 Oscar Digital Experience!

I couldn't be more excited to be joining The Academy and ABC once again as host of their digital experience for the 84th Academy Awards. This year, we're adding another component to the online experience- What's Trending will be producing "Oscar Dailies" livestreams and specials leading up to Hollywood's biggest night.

It all starts on Tuesday from noon-1pm pt with a nominations special livestream. An all-star lineup of film critics and personalities will join us in studio and over Skype to look at the nominees announced that morning. We will then be airing special panels every week after that with Oscar winning actors, directors and producers to discuss their favorite movie moments and what it was like to take home the statue.
