Oscar.com will boost its online video output before and during this year's February 22 ceremony, giving movie fans a real treat.

The site will stream continuous backstage footage during the show, along with a live feed from the press room where winners answer questions after giving their acceptance speeches.

Oscar.com will also offer the "Thank You Cam," a live video feed which allows winners who run out of time to finish their speeches. (Gee, thanks. There's a reason those windbags get cut off.)

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- which sponsors the award -- is also presenting "The Road to the Oscars" beginning one week before the bash.
