The 87th annual Academy Awards presentation will consist of three hours focused on the best filmmakers in Hollywood getting statues, but everybody knows the fun part will be on the red carpet before the show Sunday night. Stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Emma Stone and others will show off their fashionable sides, and the interviews with them can generate sound bites that people will talk about for days. Luckily, there are plenty of options for watching the 2015 Oscars red-carpet arrivals online or on television.

The “E Live From the Red Carpet” special is an all-day affair. The behind-the-scenes scoop begins with the “E Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2015 Academy Awards.” The special will be shown on the E network from 1 to 5:30 p.m. EST.

Although the E coverage is highly popular, the network isn’t the only one on the red carpet. ABC will present both the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony and its own preshow. “Oscars Opening Ceremony: Live From the Red Carpet” will be hosted by Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Michael Strahan. The preshow on ABC will begin at 7 p.m. EST and end at 8:30 p.m. Viewers with login information furnished by their cable providers can watch ABC live here.

Those without login information furnished by their cable providers can still live-stream Oscars red-carpet footage via ABC. “The Oscars Backstage” promises to not only explore the red carpet but also show what’s happening backstage during the show, giving audiences their first glimpses of the winners right after they receive their awards. The cameras will “catch the winners’ first thoughts as they step backstage after their acceptance speeches,” according to ABC. The special will be shown online, starting at 7 p.m. EST.
