Liveblogging the MTV Movie Awards

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

MTV, the network whose prescient forays into reality programming placed it in the vanguard of youth-oriented television, has decided that since this little ole thing called the Internet is catching on big with the kids, the way to capitalize on the immediacy of Web 2.0 is to brodacast the annual Movie Awards* live and (more importantly) allow schlubs like me high-stakes online journalists to live blog the event.

This means that you'll get to see and read about every nipple slip, cuss word and catfight you normally wouldn't hear about. And for all off this, we have to say thanks to all the instant gossip Web sites that have ushered in this brave new era of celebutard-ism, thanks to MTV for inviting us to jump on your ship, and thanks to God or the defense department or whoever, for inventing the Internet.

I'm here at the MTV Movie Awards now. I will be here all day. The awards start at 5pm. Keep reloading the page for updates. LAist loves you!

*Normally the MTV Movie Awards are taped, edited and aired several days later.
