Tonight a 8:30 pm Eastern, ABC will host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The Oscars, the most prestigious awards in the film industry, will feature some of the biggest names in Hollywood, both on the red carpet and up on stage, collecting their trophies.

This year's Academy Awards will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, making his Oscars debut. He's rumored to be kicking off the show by performing a song written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, of Frozen fame. Adam Levine, Tim McGraw, Common, John Legend, and Rita Ora will also perform.

Please join Vox's live blog covering the event. The live-blogging begins at 7:00 p.m. Eastern and will continue until the program ends.

Will Birdman beat Boyhood for Best Picture? Will Bradley Cooper finally get to give a speech? Will a celebrity trip and fall? Will John Travolta pronounce another celebrity's name inaccurately? Only time will tell.

These questions and many others will be answered, beginning at 7 pm Eastern tonight. Follow along as we live-blog the extravaganza.
