Roughly two weeks after giving its blessing to an unofficial Oscar-themed app, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is rolling
out one of its own.Oscar  

The Academy has unveiled the official Oscar app will let
iPhone users access the complete list of this year’s nominees as well as view trailers
for Best Picture nominees and predict winners in each category. Those
predictions can be shared via social networks and SMS texts.

In many ways, it’s a less robust application than The Oscars
Guide
, but it does carry the Academy’s full backing. And it could be a quick
way to get up to speed on the plethora of Best Picture candidates before the
awards on March 7.
