I've never done a live-blog before, but I figured it could be kind of fun...and I thought I'd try it out. So, if you're reading this before or during the show, share your thoughts as they happen right along with me. If you don't see this until after the show airs, then feel free to comment on what I've written or figure out whether the awards are better off being ignored or watched later during an MTV re-run!
AKA- For those that don't understand what I mean by live-blogging...I will keep updating this post while the awards are on, sharing my thoughts about the things that have just happened. I will also try and include as many photos and fun things as I can, just because I think it makes it more interesting!
Johnny Depp just won the Generation Award. Absolutely amazing. He's one of my favorite actors and a great candidate fo this award. If you've seen the show before, you know they show a collection of clips from the work of the winner...and it was great to see a variety of thins that Johnny has done, all mashed together. I especially liked seeing clips from the film Cry Baby (great film...it's like a mock 50s musical). At any rate, after that, Johnny came out to play guitar with band, The Black Keys, which was a total surprise and pretty dang rockin'! Johnny talked a bit after this, saying thanks for the award and giving my favorite line, "based on the clips, there is obviously something wrong with me." Maybe so, Johnny, but all of your fans have 'something wrong' with them too! Then he began to play with the band again, leading into commercial break. Again...amazing moment. Worth watching just for this!
