Yep, what GSpotter said. In this specific case, I would probably take the shot with optimal background exposure, maybe slightly overexposed, like 1/3 stop. Use the adjustment brush on the screen portion to push up the exposure locally. Lightroom will be smart enough to dodge only the part of the photo inside the rectangular border if you use the correct modifier key.
