The 87th annual Academy Awards take place Sunday night, and if you want to catch all of the action while on the go, here's how you can stream the Oscars live on your iPhone or other device.

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."  You can also catch their coverage on the E! web site or mobile app, along with a pre-show at 1:30 p.m.

The Oscars are airing on ABC at 8:30 p.m. ET, so the network's accompanying site will provide a live-stream of the award show.

Viewers who cannot watch on traditional television can tune in to the live stream on Watch ABC and the Watch ABC app in select markets -- Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco.

For viewers who are going to be mobile during The Oscars, your iPad (or tablet) is your best friend. Much like the website from above, the Watch ABC app provides the same coverage as ABC.com. Unfortunately, the same restrictions apply, but if you fit the bill, you can just tap on over to "Watch Live" during the show and watch away.

Another alternative is following the show on Twitter. With updates on winners, speech quotes, and videos of acceptance speeches, readers will follow live events from the Oscars.
