So here I am at the show… it’s live over at miptv.com
It’s a rather strange set – dressed as it is to give the results in a mastermind style – very odd.
More here as it happens.

So very strange so far – but by far the best way I’ve seen to present what can be a very boring set of awards – great for those involved (they get cash) but not for those of us in the audience.
It’s descended into even more strangeness here as we reach half time – a really funny way to give away prizes – throw your business card (I forgot mine!) at the stage and get a helicopter ride or a mobile phone… now back to the awards. (Photos on the flickr stream of this happening)
Just noticed that Ingrid – the able assistant on-stage keeps changing her tee-shirt – quite funny and slightly odd – wondering if there’s a reason behind it.
On-stage host is turning into a bit of a letch…. but to be fair… Jason DaPonte is a very attractive man 😉
