Ellen DeGeneres may have killed it with selfies and pizza at the Oscars this year, but MTV has hired a suitable challenger. While the MTV Movie Awards and the Oscars are on two vastly different levels, O’Brien ma find himself hosting the Oscars one day and that journey starts on MTV.
Comedian/late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien, who has hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards, is now taking on emcee duties at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. … “After eight years of intense negations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV’s second most prestigious awards show,” O’Brien deadpanned.
The MTV Movie Awards honor the best of the best in chic cinema from the past year and couldn’t be more the opposite of the Oscars we just saw. Still, an award show is only as good as its host and that’s especially true for the MTV Movie Awards which relies as heavily on the entrainment factor as it does handing out golden popcorn statues.
O’Brien has a grip on the right MTV demographic and he looks poised to take the hosting reigns and run with them while we gleefully watch.
The MTV Movie Awards will take place on April 13, 2014 on MTV.
