Music’s ultimate parody writer posted to his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts that the ceremony will be taking place on August 27th at 11:30 a.m., at a location right across the street from the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd.

“The time has finally come,” Yankovic posted, along with the informational where/whens:

Various celebs chimed in on the announcement, all proclaiming the honor well deserved.

We’re looking forward to seeing what Lin-Manuel Miranda has to say, as well.

Congrats, Mr. Yankovic!
