Got a question for an Oscar nominee?

Movie fans, your opportunity to ask Oscar nominees and presenters a question on the red carpet has arrived. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is inviting fans from around the world to submit questions via Twitter (@TheAcademy) and Facebook (/TheAcademy) for possible inclusion in “Oscars Red Carpet Live,” the show immediately preceding the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday, February 27, 2011.

Questions will be posed to Oscar nominees and other celebrities by “Oscars Red Carpet Live” co-hosts Robin Roberts, Tim Gunn, Krista Smith and Maria Menounos. Fan questions, answers and photos will also be posted throughout Oscar Night on Oscar.com, the Academy’s Twitter feed and Facebook page.

Facebook fans can post questions to the Academy’s fan page Wall. On Twitter, fans are encouraged to submit questions using the celebrity name with hash tags #ask #Oscars. Technology provider Mass Relevance will be working with the Academy to collect and select fan questions.

“Oscars Red Carpet Live” will provide viewers with an expanded red carpet experience featuring interviews with nominees, presenters and guests as well as behind-the-scenes glimpses into the Oscars. It will air on ABC at 7 p.m. EST, immediately preceding the Oscar telecast.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood and Highland Center, and televised live by ABC. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.
