Best: Barclays Center as a TV set
This was the first major awards show held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the production company MTV hired to run the event were very inspired. The set which featured a giant crosshatched sphere for most of the night as the main stage and a gigantic moon man on the opposite side of the area. Considering the same old, same old look production designers have seemed to endure with Staples Center, this was a refreshing site. The Brooklyn Bridge Arches on the red carpet were also a very nice and appropriate touch.
