With this year’s Oscars ceremony moments away (the ceremony itself is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC, but you can catch lots of earlier red carpet action here), we’re kicking off our live blog.

Besides the drama of the awards themselves, this year’s ceremony will also prove a test of whether the 85-year-old show can appeal to a younger audience. In an effort to "modernize" the proceedings, producers have a number of changes in store. Not only are they dropping the more formal “Academy Awards” from the program’s name, and rebranding it simply as “the Oscars,” but the production team has also said it hopes to liven up the show and inject more humor into it.

For that responsibility, they’ve tasked “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, who will be hosting the show, held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles.

"Seth provides everything that we were looking for in terms of the host because he is relevant to an audience today and he's funny, charismatic," co-executive producer Neil Meron said of MacFarlane. “He has great charm. He embodies kind of a post-millennium host in that tradition of Johnny Carson, Bob Hope and Billy Crystal. He is the next step in terms of making the show current.”

Let’s hope MacFarlane can rise to the challenge!

Below is a list of the 2013 nominees in the most anticipated Oscar award categories, which will be  updated live throughout the night as the winners are announced.
