Even though I was not a spectator, I could still see (well, somewhat) what the photographers and videographers were doing from the back of the hall. They seemed very busy to try to capture the important scenes in the celebrations, and they had to have perfect timing, especially during the performances, to capture the most impressive part of the performance. They also had to be very alert for the important or unexpected events, such as the part when the VIP arrived, and the part when the prize-winners went on stage.
I also think that the videographers and photographers were rather organized, as they were only a little startled when unexpected and important things happened. They were also not very distracted, and they stayed focused on the celebrations.
