Conan O’Brien to host MTV Movie Awards

– Conan O’Brien will be serving up buckets of golden popcorn.

O’Brien announced Tuesday on his TBS talk show “Conan” that he’s hosting this year’s MTV Movie Awards. The annual movie celebration that honors winners with popcorn-shaped trophies is scheduled for April 13 at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

“After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV’s second most prestigious awards show,” the comedian joked in a statement.

It marks the first time O’Brien has hosted the MTV Movie Awards. He previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2002 and 2006.

Past hosts of the MTV Movie Awards have included Jimmy Fallon, Aziz Ansari, Russell Brand, Rebel Wilson and Sarah Silverman.
