ABC has your VIP ticket to experience a first in the history of the Academy Awards: Katie Couric takes movie fans of all ages inside the vast Oscar archives to witness the greatest moments in the show's history and to see rare behind-the-scenes footage and home movies of some of Hollywood's most iconic stars.

Several of this year's nominees like Bradley Cooper, Sally Field, Jennifer Lawrence and Denzel Washington, and stars including Billy Crystal, Marisa Tomei, Whoopi Goldberg, Cuba Gooding, Jr., as well as Dawn Hudson, Academy CEO, all help Couric celebrate the Oscars. "Mad About Oscar with Katie Couric," a Special Edition of "20/20," airs WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The special will feature the most memorable and moving Oscar acceptance speeches of all time, the most hilarious monologue moments, unscripted and surprising Oscar moments, and the red carpet fashions. Also, with unprecedented access to the Oscar vault at the Pickford Center in Hollywood, the broadcast features recently unearthed early film of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball; unique behind-the-scenes footage of Marilyn Monroe shot during the filming of "The Misfits," "Bus Stop" and "The Prince and the Showgirl"; and rare home film shot behind the scenes of "Gone with the Wind".

John Green is the executive producer of "Mad About Oscar with Katie Couric," which is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound.
