Billy Crystal’s Oscar Hosting Behind The Scenes: ‘We’ll Have a Good Time!\'

The 84th Academy Awards has just launched their official online home: Oscar.com. And it’s worth a trip over there for many reasons, and one of those reasons is Billy Crystal.

Oscar.com includes behind-the-scenes footage of Crystal preparing for his hosting duties. In the clip, Crystal muses:

“The Oscars: Not just an awards show. Okay, it is. But it’s the best one!”

And just from that snippet, you know Billy is going to be back--as charming, adorable, and funny as ever.

The site is also kicking off with an interactive timeline for counting down to the 84th Academy Awards. It also features daily content including red carpet fashion, stylist tips, and advice on how to host an awesome Oscar party.

"Last year our team set the bar high in terms of interactive second screen experiences," said Karin Gilford, senior vice president Digital Media, ABC.com. "This year we are taking the best of what we learned and are building on it. Beginning today we'll take visitors on an unparalleled journey all the way through Oscar Sunday."

On Oscar Sunday, the website will have live camera shots everywhere from the red carpet to backstage to the Governer’s Ball. And you can watch it from your iPad, iPhone and/or iPod touch.

January 24 is Oscar nominations morning. But if you’re like us and just can’t wait till then to get geared up for the Oscars, I strongly suggest checking out there site. It’s all Oscars, all the time!
