Andy Samberg of Saturday Night Live fame has been tapped to host the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. This marks the funnyman's first time as the show's host. The ceremony will be held on May 31 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.
Samberg, a four-year SNL vet who garnered attention for his digital musical shorts, was a writer for the awards show before he landed at SNL and says he grew up a fan of the event. The MTV Movie Awards first began broadcasting in 1992 and feature gold popcorn statues and atypical categories such as Best Male/Female Breakthrough Performance, Best Kiss, Best Fight, Best Action Sequence, and Best Villain. Awards for categories like Best Movie and Best Male/Female Performance are also handed out.
