MTV News welcomes Shelly Morrison as our official Movie Awards Insider for the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. From now until the big show on Sunday, Shelly will be mixing it up with the hottest celebrities and taking you behind closed doors for one of Hollywood's biggest events.
Hey everyone! I'm Shelly Morrison, and I am going to be your insider for the MTV Movie Awards. I'm 22 years old and from O'Fallon, Illinois, about 30 minutes from St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from college about a year ago with a degree in Business Administration/International Management, and spent last summer working in the marketing communications department of a bank in Germany.
I entered the Movie Awards Insider competition on a whim, really. I wrote my 250 words, crossed my fingers and sent it off hoping for the best. I was shocked that I actually made it as a finalist, and I still can't believe that I am here in L.A. hanging out with MTV News.
I've been told that MTV has a lot of things planned, some of which remain a surprise, even to me. But, I have already been able to see a bit of what goes on behind the scenes at MTV. I am most excited about seeing the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday night and maybe even getting to meet a few celebrities. I can't wait to see what the next couple of days have in store, and I can't wait to learn a little bit more about what it takes to be an MTV Insider.
