2004 MTV Movie Awards
Talk about your old news. =^)
Still, it's fun to dig into Andy's past...
Andy as a reporter (with Kiv):
Andy with Jimmy Falon, who helped get him on SNL:
We're putting this in Images 05, cuz we don't want to make an 04 category. =^)
So the story is that Andy Samberg (and the dudes) wrote for the MTV Movie Awards in 04 and 05. MTV didn't pick up their sitcom or Awesometown, but they still hired them to write for very little (they paid all three of them one writer's salary), and the dudes did it to get experience and connections.
Well, it paid off, and Jimmy Falon recommended them to Lorne Michaels. Andy and Jorma auditioned in 2005. Andy got the job after the second audition, and Jorma and Kiv got hired as writers/musicians/editors/directos. That brings us up to date!
