On Facebook, fans will be able to submit questions to the hosts and talent on “The Oscars: All Access” in real time. In addition, Facebook will present exclusive video footage of this year’s Oscar nominees, including Pharrell, Ruth Negga, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Damien Chazelle.

The internet stream of the 89th Oscars telecast itself, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will be available only to subscribers of participating pay-TV providers via ABC’s apps and ABC.com, and limited to markets with ABC-owned local stations and Hearst Television affiliates.

“The Oscars: All Access” — which ABC formerly called “Oscars Backstage” — includes “Good Morning America” and ESPN correspondent Chris Connelly, who returns as the official greeter of the Oscars red carpet.

Actor Troy Gentile (“The Goldbergs”) and ESPN commentator Adnan Virk will provide dispatches from various locations.

The digital show will feature footage from 20 cameras on the red carpet, backstage and in the audience of Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
