You have a few options for the red carpet action

First of all, as is always the case during awards season, E! gave you a front row seat, with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic chatting to the nominees and other A-list guests as they made their way into the event.

There was also a somewhat more official red carpet stream available to watch on the Oscars’ Twitter page (@TheAcademy), presented by journalist Louis Virtel and former Disney star Laura Marano.

If you prefer your coverage with a more British slant, though, you can also catch up on Sky’s dedicated Oscars channel, which is also available to NOW TV customers.

But what about the actual ceremony?

Well, British film fans will be pleased to note that, unlike the Golden Globes and Grammys, the Oscars is one awards show that you can actually cactch here in the UK.

Sky’s dedicated Oscars channel – also available to NOW TV customers – screened the event live on Sunday night (or Monday morning, depending on which way you look at it). They’ll also be showing the ceremony ‘as live’ the following day.

But if you’re not keen on sitting through the whole thing, you can read all the highlights from this year’s ceremony and red carpet on our dedicated Oscars page.
