Those without a television can watch the red carpet festivities via the Oscars website,, or the WATCH ABC app on mobile, tablet, and streaming devices. All three options require authentification and logins from a cable provider.

Another option for red carpet coverage without a TV is the E! Online's AT&T livestream, which begins at 5:25 p.m. ET via the cable channel's website. For that digital show, Jason Kennedy and Carissa Loethen will host behind-the-scenes celebrity gossip and details along with a cast of movie experts.
