Tonight at 8:00 p.m., I will be joined by my live-blog partners Marc Hirsh and Mark Blankenship, and we'll bring you the lowdown on all this year's festivities. If you want to comment, feel free to leave your comments right on this post, just as you normally would — we find that feeding them into the chat stream directly is kind of like a thousand people trying to instant-message each other simultaneously. But do share your thoughts, and do join us to see Billy Crystal sing, George Clooney smile, and Meryl Streep wear something that says, quite understandably, "Not this again."

We no longer support commenting on NPR.org stories, but you can find us every day on Facebook, Twitter, email, and many other platforms. Learn more or contact us.
