Ahead of the event, Miller talked about his preparations for the night. He told the Los Angeles Times: "You kind of need as much help as you can get. As you saw, Ricky Gervais got slaughtered after the [Golden] Globes. My show is going to be completely different than that. It's not going to be about, 'Who's T.J. going to cut into next? Who is he going to make feel uncomfortable?' There is a schadenfreude in that that I don't particularly enjoy."

"The joke of Hollywood is that it's filled with scum and hollowness and emptiness, and you guys are all whining brats. To me, it's more interesting to look at how important culture, and how important art, is in people's lives right now. That stems from me as a comedian thinking comedy is really important. Life is hard. Not great. Kind of tragic. So what I want to do is keep momentum going and remind people that this is fun. Even the losers should really have a good time tonight. Have a good time, enjoy the drink, and celebrate some of the better stories," he added.
