Getting ready for the red carpet can be stressful! I'm sure we've all looked at tabloid magazines and Web Sites and taken part in making fun of a bad dress choice or fashion faux pas. So, when you're faced with the chance of being the object of one of these critiques, it can get a little scary. I unfortunately have once been on the worst-dressed list in People — I won't bore you with the details or a description of that fateful dress — the point is, however, that I want to make sure that I choose the right look for this exciting night.

We've gone through dress after dress after dress, and I think we've finally narrowed it down to five. I'm a fan of all five — the diversity of cut, color, style, length, fabric, and shape make it quite hard to choose just one. So, now I leave it to you guys. Vote here on which one you like the most...and vote wisely, because whichever one you choose is the one that I'll wear on Sunday.

On Sunday, we launched our Sneak Peek Week of upcoming summer films with a screening of Adam Sandler's "You Don't Mess With the Zohan," followed by a Q&A with the star moderated by our own Josh Horowitz. Yesterday evening, we held our second event, this time for the martial arts-themed comedy "The Foot Fist Way." In attendance for the Q&A was the film's star Danny McBride, writer/director Jody Hill and a little-known producer named Will Ferrell.

As the audience packed into the theater on the Paramount studio lot, our correspondent Tim Kash filmed an interview with Ferrell and McBride just outside.

While many of you were out BBQ'ing yesterday evening, here in Hollywood we were busy throwing the first of the MTV Sneak Peek Week events. With Adam Sandler in attendance at the historic Mann's Chinese Theater along with an audience of hundreds, we held a screening of his new comedy, "You Don't Mess With The Zohan," which finds Sandler as Israel's #1 commando who moves to America to pursue his dream of being a hair stylist.

While the movie was entertaining enough, the biggest part of the night came after the lights went up, as Sandler was ushered out for a Q&A session hosted by our own Josh Horowitz. (Read the rest of the report and see more pics after the jump!) Read More...

MTV News Correspondent Tim Kash"Indiana Jones" takes over TRL! That's right, on Tuesday, May 20th at 3:30pm EST, tune in for an entire show dedicated to everyone's favorite adventurer. As part of the show, our correspondent Tim Kash headed down to the home of a certain George Lucas. You'll have to watch the show to see our full tour of the Indy archives, but for now read an accounting of Tim's fun-filled day below.

Today I saw the strangest thing: Four grown men walked into a room and almost immediately turned into little boys — and one of them was me!

About two weeks ago, we got the call that everyone should get at least once in their life: an invitation from film producer George Lucas to visit his legendary Skywalker Ranch. Oh yes, it's true!

According to The Wall Street Journal, the 5000-acre Skywalker Ranch (only 15 acres have been developed) cost Lucas $100 million; it's home to one of the finest collections of film memorabilia in the world, most famously from "Indiana Jones" and "Star Wars." Read More...

In the "Twilight" novels, Jacob Black is a 6’ 7”, newly 16-year-old of Native American descent who spends equal time consumed by his love for Bella and his newfound power to transform into a werewolf. In real life, Taylor Lautner is a 5’ 9”, newly 16-year-old who recently discovered his own Native American heritage and is spending equal time learning to drive and developing the look for his new movie. "The wig is very interesting," Lautner told us Friday when we caught up with him on the Portland, Oregon, set of "Twilight." "I'm definitely going to have to get used to it."

James Franco is a great actor, and over the past few years he's been in so many films that I feel like I've spent more time talking with him than my own mother. Which made it all the more strange when I caught up with him on the set of the Justin Lin film "Finishing the Game," for my most bizarre interview of 2007. Speaking in the basement of an abandoned L.A. warehouse, I asked questions about Lin's indie/comedy reinvention, Franco's upcoming flicks "Flyboys" and "Spider-Man 3," and requested a standard on-camera introduction. Maybe I was having a bad day; maybe he was.

Javier BardemMake some room on your list of the all time great movie villains because come Friday you're going to have sandwich in Javier Barden's Anton Chigurh somewhere in between Darth Vader and Hannibal Lecter. Last night I got a chance to see the latest from the Coen brothers, "No Country for Old Men" for the second time and without getting into a full-on review here I'll just say that I'm going to be shocked if this doesn't earn a ton of Oscar nods. I'm talking nominations for Picture, Screenplay, Directing. As for the actors, Bardem is a sure bet for the supporting category (his creepy haircut and mesmerizing line readings will be the talk of the season) with co-stars Josh Brolin, Kelly Macdonald, and Tommy Lee Jones all with decent shots themselves.

All of the actors save Jones were at the premiere and post-party last night. In between hanging around Dan Hedaya and Frances McDormand (insert "Fargo" imitation here) I spent a lot of time lurking around Bardem and Brolin who seemed to be getting along famously despite their intense cat and mouse game depicted in the film. See the film. See it once. See it twice. It's one for the books.

Susan SarandonAdultery, death, child molestation: Centering on the brutal rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl, Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones" is one grief filled set-piece after another. Except it's got Susan Sarandon laughing all the way to the suburbs.

"I play kind of the comic relief," Sarandon said of her role as Grandma Lynn in the upcoming production. "She's [a] drinking, hard shooting, smoking [old lady] cutting across all of the pain, pain, pain. Whenever I possibly can blow smoke in someone's face I'm doing it!"

It's a mixture of tones that's indicative of the overall production, Sarandon said, insisting that fans who only know Jackson for "Lord of the Rings" and "King Kong" are going to be "surprised." Read More...

MTV News intern Kevin Krause recently visited the set of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," where our crew -- fronted by on-air correspondent Liz Hernandez -- was fortunate enough to be part of the movie. In the scene, Liz interviews Sarah Marshall (played by "Veronica Mars" frontwoman Kristen Bell) as she exits her limo. See a video clip of our new movie star in action, and then read Kevin's thoughts on the whole experience below.

Standing in front of Hollywood's Egyptian Theater, a woman from the costume department eyeballed me like I had a visible tapeworm infection. "You'll need a wardrobe change," she said. I had never been to a movie shoot before; I just started interning at MTV a few weeks ago, and already I was standing in the heart of Hollywood Boulevard, embarrassing myself in front of my primly dressed co-workers.

MTV's "Inside the Action" takes you inside the hottest action flicks by re-creating their most explosive stunts. On deck this week is "Live Free or Die Hard," (the show premieres on MTV Sunday night at 11:30pm) and we brought together co-stars Bruce Willis and Justin Long and director Len Wiseman to witness our fiery carnage first-hand. Watch a segment below -- or see the entire show here -- and then keep reading after the jump for the full behind-the-scenes report from the show's writer.

I've been going on MTV shoots for 8 years now (wow, that freaks me out), but this "Inside the Action" was certainly unusual. I mean, I'd never blown up a car before. Read More...
