Ever wonder why certain celebs sit next to one another at awards shows?  Or what gifts the presenters and winners take home? With the MTV Movie Awards just two days away, Press Pass LA attended a preview to give you a behind the scenes look and answer these questions!

The show’s Executive Producer, Jesse Ignjatovic says the process of seating is long and tedious because you have to “Make sure people are vibing each other and you have to make sure that when you look at certain areas that you see a lot of great faces together and that they’re having fun.”MTVMovieAwards_CelebritySeating
