If you want to watch for all the best-dressed celebs with other fashion-obsessed fans, make plans to attend Ocean Prime's Red Carpet Watch Party.

The restaurant, known for seafood and steak, will offer happy hour specials from 6 to 8 p.m.

There will be $10 small plates, including beef sliders, crab cake sliders, calamari and ahi tuna tartare, as well as $1 East Coast oysters and $3 shrimp cocktail (per piece). 

To drink, enjoy $10 wines by the glass and $10 cocktails named for some of the Best Picture nominees.

• "Roma" — Corzo Silver Tequila, fresh-squeezed orange and lime juice, agave nectar
• "Vice" — Woodford Reserve, Carpano Antica Vermouth, Nonino Amaro, rosemary-grapefruit peppercorn bitters
• "Green Book" — Bombay Sapphire Gin, muddled fresh cucumber, hand-squeezed lime
• "Bohemian Rhapsody" — Gentleman Jack Whiskey, Hennessy VS, honey water, hand-squeezed lemon and orange

While watching the TV, you may want to also pull up Twitter on your phone. That's where "Oscars All Access: Red Carpet Live," which features red carpet highlights and insider coverage, will be streamed live exclusively this year. 

You'll be able to submit questions on Twitter using #OscarsAllAccess for a chance to have them asked on the red carpet in real time.
