SANTA MONICA – On Saturday, in an aircraft hanger that has hosted more famous faces than arguably any aircraft hanger in the world, Viacom put on the 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards. This pundit was on hand to take in a three-hour production that was widdled down to a two-hour telecast for your enjoyment this evening. Like all awards shows there were highs and lows and, luckily, if you wanted to partake this one provided a wide assortment of alcoholic beverages and snacks.
Having attended the Golden Globes, Independent Spirit Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Britannia Awards and various other awards ceremonies, there is no denying MTV puts on a good party. Most of the general seats were comfortable and the seats for the talent (who were placed at tables) had to be the nicest I have ever seen (they were pretty close to office desk chairs). MTV knows they are asking people to spend a long time in the venue and the only participants who really got a raw deal out of it were the “fans” who stood for over four hours on either side of the stage. Getting a high five from some of the industry’s biggest stars hopefully made up for it.
Winners - Someone - Night - Winners - List
As for the winners, well as I responded to someone much later that night, “Does it even matter?” You can find the winners list here, but there was little tension in the room. Most of the stars on hand were clearly told they had won at least one award. Publicity-shy Sandra Bullock ain’t showing up just to sit in the audience all night.
Keeping all that in mind, here are some takeaways and behind-the-scenes observations from the production.
