Transformers, Transformers & More Transformers
7:13 - Saddest Realization of the Night: Although this was theoretically an awards show, it was in actuality a two-hour commercial for Transformers. I don't know how much of what happens on stage makes it to air, but the live feed in the Blogghetto was all Transformers, all the time. It's enough to make me hate the movie and hope it flops. Not that there's a chance of that happening.
7:10 - Best Moment of the Night: Sarah Silverman's hilarious diss of Paris Hilton during her opening monologue. I'm told that Paris Hilton was supposed to present an award, but somehow she never made it on stage. I think she was PISSED! (video after the jump)
7:05 - Conclusion: MTV sort of values bloggers but not really. They like us enough to invite us to the party, but they force us to sit at the kids' table and don't let us play with the adults.
7:03 - Confirmation: Sarah Silverman will not visit the Blogghetto. Total # Of Celebrities Who Visited the Blogghetto: 2.
7:00 - The show is done. We're waiting to see if Sarah Silverman will swing through the Blogghetto. Sadly, all the good stuff happened on the red carpet -- Kevin Smith making out with his wife, Cameron Diaz clawing at Jessica Biel's face (just kidding about that one) -- and the blogging press wasn't privy to that.
6:57 - The show ends with Sarah Silverman saying: "Alright guys, that's it. Sorry, Matt Damon." I like those MTV producers. They understand that brevity truly is the soul of wit.
6:55 - And the winner for Best Movie is... Transformers! Just kidding. It's Pirates of the Caribbean. Jerry Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp accept the award. Their speech is mercifully brief.
