Hi, it's Allison MacNamara and I'm here, backstage at the Do Something Awards in Santa Monica. And I'm Lauren Bradshaw and in today's PopSugar Rush we're showing you the highlights as we were behind the scenes, backstage, and on the carpet for last night's awards as Ben Affleck, Lea Michele, and Corey Monteith, and more stars came out to accept honors. It was a packed night for a good cause at the Do Something awards. Lea Michele and Corey Monteith came out for their first carpet appearance as a couple before both being recognized as Do Something's female and male TV stars. Ben Affleck was also among the night's winners for his work on the Eastern Congo Initiative which the actor has been actively raising awareness about on his Facebook page. Allison McNamara was back to chat with all the stars after they won. Tonight is all about charity and doing something good. And stars including Nikki Reed, Ellie Kemper and Nick Cannon stopped by our photo booth backstage. When I travel the world I'm not just traveling the world like, "Oh my god this is cool. Hey let me get some more champagne."VIP section. I'm out there trying to connect and make things happen and connect the dots and bring people together to change where I'm from. I was always thought to on much is give, much is required. So the more you have, the more you have to give. And my kids have definitely learned that lesson as well. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey took home the couple award, but sadly, Nick had to accept the reward solo because Mariah was out of town working. She's right here. Where is she tonight? Right here. I drew a bad eye. No, she's actually filming a movie right now. She was planning on being here but this is one of those shoot days so she's somewhere on a movie set, but she really wanted to be her. Joe Miguel told me about his wedding of the century and how Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's engangement kinda put a little damper in his plans. You're invited to the Soup's wedding of the century for Jennifer and Justin. And so are Jennifer and Justin. Will they attend? Not our problem. You know how Inside Edition, all those shows Just, it's always just rumors about people getting married and all that crap, it never actually happened, right. And so we're like let's just do the biggest couple in the world, we'll do Jen and Justin. And then they went ahead and got engaged a week after we started our bid. How rude of them! So it ruined our bid. Now Joel did tell us that plans are still on for the bit which you can see on The Soup, August 29th, The Do something awards air on VH1 August 21st. I'm Lauren Bradshaw and we'll see you next time on PopSugar Rush.
