The team of lighting technicians, engineers, stage designers and riggers all worked overtime and well into the night to create what is, in my opinion, the best-looking stage we’ve ever had here at the Movie Awards. From the massive, sweeping staircase that the presenters and performers walk down to the two giant robots onstage and the massive screens and thousands of lights, it looks amazing — and it’s not even finished yet!
Andy Samberg just walked onstage to start rehearsing so I couldn’t help but stick around for his opening lines. If his opening monologue is anything to go by, he’s going to be very, very, very funny!
But what I’m really looking forward to is the Eminem rehearsal. It will be his fourth time performing at the awards (a record!), and no doubt it’s going to be a performance you are not going to want to miss!
The red carpet is slowly coming together, as is the afterparty area. We’re nearly there … the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET!
