It’s getting closer to the 2011 MTV Movie Awards and now a host has been announced — Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis!
The 20th annual ceremony will be held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif., on June 5 and Jason is thrilled to be host!
“I’m sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded movie awards show hosting in 2011 alive,” Jason said (via MTV News).
And MTV’s president thinks Jason is the perfect man for the job this year!
“Smart and funny is the new rock and roll for our audience — and that combo pretty much sums up Jason. He is a smarta** and a gentleman who never goes for the easy or obvious joke,” Stephen Friedman said. “Because of that, he is the ideal Movie Awards host, and we are confident with him anchoring the show, our audience is in store for unexpected and crazy moments with Hollywood’s biggest stars and musicians.”
Nominees for the MTV Movie Awards will be announced on May 3 and then viewers can vote through June 4. But the Best Movie category will be open throughout the ceremony on June 5!
Mark your calendars now! The show airs live on Sunday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
