Ah, the MTV Movie & TV awards…where superhero movies and Tiffany Haddish finally get the recognition they’re denied at the Oscars. This year’s awards show was pre-taped on Saturday, so this intrepid reporter pulled on her Spanx and downed a few complimentary cans of wine (yes, they were giving out cans of wine) to bring you the inside scoop on what really happens behind closed doors.
The festivities took place in an airport hangar
While it may look like this is all happening in some trendy club or auditorium, the MTV Movie & TV Awards actually took place in the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., which is basically just a massive event space that they built a stage in. The red carpet was just yards from a museum about air travel and a whole bunch of portable toilets.
Celebs munched on macarons and drank champagne
While seated at their tables, celebrities were given plates of adorable petit fours with mini-macarons and a dessert that looked like sushi. Of course, the bubbly was flowing.
