Don’t worry about buying a tuxedo, because GalleyCat will be covering the event. Senior editor Ron Hogan will be twittering about the event and editor Jason Boog will handle the good old fashioned blogging duties. There may even be some web video surprises.

The dinner and ceremony will be held at Cipriani Wall Street. The event will be hosted by author, comedian, and actor Andy Borowitz. Read all about the NBA finalists here.
