The 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards are happening on Monday, June 18, and Los Angeles is already gearing up for the festivities. Celebrity Connected kicked off the weekend with an incredible event at the W Hollywood on Friday, doing what they do best: connecting the coolest products to your favorite celebrities.

Producer/composer and the afternoon’s resident DJ, Jesse Shadis set the mood as people mixed through the crowd. Some of this year’s nominees and other stars mingled with guests, vendors, and press at an upscale event that allowed everyone to, well, get connected.

Onsite were artists like rapper Jallal, known for his collaborations with Lil Wayne and Ne-Yo. LeVar Burton (‘Reading Rainbow’), Farrah Abraham, Steven Weber, “Supernatural” favorites Jim Beaver and Kim Rhodes, “The Walking Dead” star Chandler Riggs, NFL vet James Anderson, musical artist Kirsten Collins, and “Riverdale” heartthrob Jordan Conner, were all among the list of attendees.

Offering up some really cool samples in clothing were brands like Current Air, VICIDOLLS and Search Party Apparel (celebrating snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing). Some took a motivational theme such as the lifestyle brand Eliivate as well as the anti-bullying mother/daughter team who created Cinderella’s Closet. Makeup brands like Nanacoco were onsite, food lovers could savor the good life with Cuisinart, Chic Sparrow shared travelers notebooks; there were even Waterpik Pet Wands on hand for those with four-legged family members.

Everyone in Hollywood is getting ready for the upcoming show on Monday. There’s sure to be plenty of excitement as the weekend continues. You can tune in to MTV on Monday, June 18 at 9/8c to catch the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Musical performances this year include Nick Jonas and Mustard as well as Chloe x Halle, along with a list of superstar presenters and the evening’s host, Tiffany Haddish.
