GetGlue Gets Glam with The Academy, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and E! for Oscar Night

We’re so excited about our partnerships for the Oscars that we’re tempted to make a 45-second speech thanking our mothers, agents, and high-school drama teachers, but instead, we’ll stick to this blog. GetGlue is partnering with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to create stickers for the biggest awards show of the year: The Oscars, airing Sunday night at 8p/5p on ABC. Users who check-in to the 83rd Annual Academy Awards before and during the show through Oscars.com or our apps have the opportunity to earn these A-list stickers.

GetGlue-OscarsIn the days counting down to the Academy Awards, you can watch a trailer for the show to be hosted by top talent James Franco and Anne Hathaway. You can also choose between the year’s best films such as The King’s Speech, The Fighter, and The Social Network, and check-in with your vote for Best Picture from now until the end of Sunday’s telecast.

The fun begins before the first award is given out, so be sure to watch and check-in to Oscars Red Carpet Live at 7e/4p on ABC. Once Hathaway and Franco make their grand entrance onto the stage at the Kodak Theatre, start checking-in through our apps or our widget on Oscars.com, where you’ll get awesome backstage access to the show. Check-in throughout the show to share your thoughts on the winners and losers.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! After the Academy Awards

We’re also partnering with Jimmy Kimmel Live! on their HUGE annual post-Oscars show. Keep your remote on ABC after the awards and your local news air for more fun. Check-in to Jimmy Kimmel Live! and keep an eye out for this year’s hilarious video, “Hottie Body.” which is sure to be just as cheerfully contagious as last year’s laughfest “Handsome Men’s Club.” Give a shout out to the video in your check-in for an extra reward.

E!’s Live From the Red Carpet and Fashion Police

After partnering with E! for the Grammys and the Golden Globes, we also have a sticker especially for their Live From the Red Carpet coverage of the Academy Awards, hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic. Check-in through our apps or our site when live coverage begins at 6e/3p, and the fun returns Monday night at 10pm with the post-Oscar special of Fashion Police with Joan Rivers and catty company. Check-in share who you think looked great–and who didn’t–to have a chance to earn all the fantastic Fashion Police sticker swag.

We can’t guarantee you’ll win your Oscar pool, but at least you’ll have plenty of stickers as your reward for watching and checking-in to the year’s biggest awards show. Catch all the GetGlue gossip when you follow us on Twitter.
