With Hollywood's most celebrated night less than a week away, Oscar.com, the official site for the 80th Annual Academy Awards, will provide movie fans with more video than ever before, including exclusive behind-the-scenes content, a sneak peek into Oscar preparations, as well as online sweepstakes, interactive games and a chance for fans to upload their own acceptance speeches.

The style headlines will be articulated by popular trend watcher Tom Julian, now entering his 13th year as fashion commentator. On Oscar.com, Julian was the first to chronicle the world of couture fashion on the red carpet of Hollywood's biggest night of the year. He will give fans an up-close-and-personal look into red carpet style and take fans back in time with the "Evolution of Style" page. Julian continues to act as Senior VP, Strategic Director of Trends for McCann Erickson.

New to Oscar.com this year will be a live blog during the show by humorist and Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein. Stein will be blogging live from the red carpet during arrivals and then backstage during the show with up-to-the minute commentary.

Do you have your Oscar speech planned but no one to give it to? Now fans can get into the Oscar spirit by uploading their own acceptance speeches on Oscar.com.
