The Academy Awards honor some of the best and most inspiring actors and films of the year. Whether it’s animation, comedy, drama or adventure that interests you, this is the time to organize all the movies on your watch list, and to get into the spirit of Oscar night by studying up on all the nominees.

Download the official Oscars app and get up to speed on all things Oscar. This app gives you access to information on nominees, movie trailers, exclusive videos, and photos. You can also watch hosted specials on fashion and nominated films and actors. Cast and share your virtual ballot with My Picks feature.

If you haven’t seen some of this year’s nominated films and want to watch them before the big night, Viewdini will scan content providers like Netflix, Hulu Plus and Crackle, to help you find many of the top movies. For some nominees, there’s still time to make it to the theater. Check Fandango for movie times, trailers, and tickets. If you can’t make it to the theater, search the Rotten Tomatoes app for reviews from moviegoers and critics.
