Comedian and late-night talk-show host Conan O'Brien will host this year's MTV Movie Awards, the unbuttoned show that irreverently honors Hollywood's best kisses and best fight scenes, the MTV network said on Wednesday (March 5).
It will be the first time that O'Brien has hosted the annual show, which will take place on April 13 at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles and which serves as lead-in to the summer movie season.
O'Brien, the host of late-night talk show "Conan" on U.S. cable network TBS, is known for his oddball, youth-skewed humor, which marked a generational shift when he began a 16-year stint on NBC's "Late Night" talk show in 1993.
The MTV Movie Awards bestow honors to the year's blockbuster hits likely to have been overlooked by industry stalwarts the Oscars and the Golden Globes.
