Since pretty much the entire MTV News department is in LA right now, getting oxygen facials with Shia LaBeouf in the lead-up to the MTV Movie Awards (live! this Sunday! 8pm!), we will continue to mock them for being horrible Hollywood sycophants. (Seriously, we love it here in Times Square. You could not tear us away. Go ahead and drink mochatinis with Jake Gyllenhaal at the Chateau, Josh Horowitz. We. Do. Not. Care.)
Case in point, here’s a roundup of the “work” the News department put in yesterday:
· Tim Kash tackled Rodeo Drive and In-N-Out Burger. Tough.
· MTV News snuck these two Movie Award shorts out of the edit.
· Josh wrestled “Transformers 2” casting news out of The Rocker and Rainn Wilson.
· The LA team got World Extreme Cagefighting Featherweight contendors Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver to handicap the Best Fight nominees.
· And some hard-working producers got William Shatner to explain his 1992 MTV Movie Awards Spoken-Word Performance.
· Oh, and somehow Kim hasn't gotten around to taking the Studio Tour yet, but it's not a total loss.
This is all building up to MTV News’ “Coming Attractions” pre-show, airing this Sunday! right before the Movie Awards! at 7:30pm ET! And you will not miss this, of course, because Tim Kash can easily figure out where you live.
