Tanya Pai heads the standards team at Vox, focusing on copy editing, fact-checking, inclusive language and sourcing, and newsroom standards and ethics issues. She’s also a founder of Language, Please, a free resource for journalists and storytellers focused on thoughtful language use.

The 88th Academy Awards, the biggest entertainment awards show of the year, are going down tonight at 8:30 pm Eastern. You can watch them on ABC; you can also tune in to the ABC website for a live stream of the show, though you'll need a login from your cable provider. And Vox will be live-blogging the whole celebrity-packed spectacle right here.

Will host Chris Rock's monologue tackle #OscarsSoWhite? Will Spotlight surprise everyone and win Best Picture over the heavily favored The Revenant? Will Leonardo DiCaprio finally win one of those damn gold statues?

Culture editor Todd VanDerWerff, deputy culture editor Jen Trolio, culture writers Alex Abad-Santos and Caroline Framke, and copy chief Tanya Pai will be discussing these questions and much more throughout the show. You can find our live-blog here or just follow along below. Happy Oscars night!
