The tributes hit the black carpet at Monday night’s world premiere of “The Hunger Games”, and MTV News brought you every second of the action and interviews with all of the film’s stars.

Of course, there were some standouts that we had a particular amount of fun with, so here are our top five moments from the premiere.

Miley Everdeen?
Despite dating one of the male leads of “The Hunger Games,” Miley Cyrus admitted that she never read any of the script to help her boyfriend, , prepare for his role. “I’m a bad girlfriend,” she said. That was probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing Miley in Panem, since she said she didn’t see herself getting a role in any of the sequels.

Elizabeth Banks
Before heading to the red carpet, Elizabeth Banks had talked about arriving with fingernails that her character, Effie Trinket, could be proud of. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out. “The nail place that was going to do my nails — it was a whole thing. … I was like, ‘I’m going to go crazy with the nails.’ Then the woman who does the fancy good stuff wasn’t there,” Banks said. “They were going to bring her in. It’s not my fault. I really tried to go for it. I was going to get gold jewels on my nails and everything, but it didn’t work out.”

Zombie Quaid
If you had any doubt before, now you know for sure that if the zombie apocalypse breaks out in the Los Angeles area, Jack Quaid is the man you need to stick close to. On the black carpet, Quaid shared his secrets for surviving an uprising of the undead. He would run immediately to a sporting goods store, set sail for Catalina and wait it out. Good to know, Jack. Good to know.

Rue’s Audition
If you’re trying out for a role in “The Hunger Games,” you have to pull out all the stops, just like Amandla Stenberg did. She dressed the part to convince the director to give her the role. “I went to [director Gary Ross'] house covered in mud with leaves and twigs in my hair and everything, so I looked like Rue,” she said at the premiere. “I think I made a good impression, because it went really well. I was very nervous, though, because I didn’t hear back for a couple weeks, but then I got a call from my agent saying I got the part. I started screaming and running around!”

Jennifer Lawrence
For the so-called Girl on Fire, Jennifer Lawrence was remarkably cool at the premiere. She joked that her lack of fire had disappointed a surprising number of people. “Was everybody disappointed that I wasn’t set on fire? God, that was a high, high bar to set. ‘Oh, darn it, she didn’t set herself on fire,’ ” Lawrence told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. “That’s unfair. I don’t ever want to have to put myself on fire. Why am I constantly disappointing myself when I’m not putting my life in danger? That’s not right.”
