Only a few hours remains before the Oscars, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is ramping up its web series The Road to the Oscars in anticipation for the big night.

With its goal of being “the most interactive awards show of all time,” the 83rd Annual Academy Awards has launched The Road to the Oscars as a part of its You’re Invited campaign, an unprecedented shift from its usual closed doors of exclusivity. In addition to its pay-per-view Oscars All Access show, which takes viewers live behind the scenes on the red carpet, at the awards show, and at the Governors Ball, the Academy has released an app for the iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes store.
