NEW YORK ““ The Associated Press, the world’s leading source for news and information, brings online viewers the excitement of the Oscars, Grammys and the Golden Globes with coverage of the 2011 Awards Season on AP Live, which offers two months of entertainment news, interviews, and live streaming from the red carpets of Hollywood’s three biggest award shows.
AP Live 2011 Awards Season, powered by Livestream, is available two ways: online at www.livestream.com/aplive and as a widget embeddable on any website. Coverage kicked off last week with news about the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations and runs through March. Red carpet coverage begins two hours before the Globes on Jan. 16, the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 13 and the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 27. AP Live coverage also includes a multimedia interactive, on-demand video, reactions from the nominees, fashion commentary, and a behind-the-scenes look.
Viewers can send in their questions through Facebook (www.facebook.com/APLive) and Twitter and AP correspondents on the red carpet with handheld devices will relay the information directly to celebrities.
“AP Live is the single source for the best coverage of the Golden Globes, Grammys and Oscars for online viewers and our customers,” AP Global Director of Entertainment Products Michael Dutton said. “We’re giving viewers the kind of access they can’t get anywhere else by allowing them to interact directly with journalists on the red carpet in real time.”
