MTV Movie Awards Prove Themselves to Be Relevant, Hire Rebel Wilson to Host

Rebel Wilson

It’s hard to take any awards show seriously that gives away “awards” in such categories as “Best On-Screen Dirtbag,” least of all one that’s put together by MTV, but the network’s own MTV Movie Awards have now suddenly, stunningly proved their worth and relevance by picking Rebel Wilson to host their next kudos-giving shindig. The Aussie comedienne, show-stealer, and personal queen of my heart will take time out of her busy schedule of ass-kicking to host the awards in April, swiftly making the awards show a must-see event for anyone who likes things that are good and brash and funny.

Wilson will next be seen in Pain & Gain (making the Michael Bay film still more awesome than it already looks) and is currently working on her brand new ABC sitcom, Super Fun Night. After the break, check out the announcement video, featuring Wilson shining bright like a diamond.

The awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, April 14, 2013. [MTV]
