    Looking forward to the footage, but I just can’t wait to see the premiere of Teen Wolf Season 2 right after the awards to be honest.

    Someone likes Emma Watson – she’s mentioned twice. :-)

    It will be interesting if The Dark Knight Rises can beat The Avengers in box office. I suspect not. The Avengers so far is the best comic book movie ever done.

  • really?

    This would mean I would have to watch MTV?
