As for host Miller’s approach to providing entertainment for viewers and audience members, he tells the LA Times:
The joke of Hollywood is that it’s filled with scum and hollowness and emptiness, and you guys are all whining brats. To me, it’s more interesting to look at how important culture, and how important art, is in people’s lives right now. That stems from me as a comedian thinking comedy is really important. Life is hard. Not great. Kind of tragic. So what I want to do is keep momentum going and remind people that this is fun. Even the losers should really have a good time tonight. Have a good time, enjoy the drink, and celebrate some of the better stories.
To check out the red carpet arrivals, turn to the A&E network on your television from 7:00 p.m. ET until 8:00 p.m. ET.
