LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Comedian and late-night talk-show host Conan O'Brien will host this year's MTV Movie Awards, the unbuttoned show that irreverently honours Hollywood's best kisses and best fight scenes, the MTV network said on Wednesday.
It will be the first time for O'Brien, 50, to host 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.
"After eight years of intense negations, I am honoured to announce I am hosting MTV's second most prestigious awards show," the flame-haired comedian quipped in a statement.
Nominations will be announced on Thursday. MTV, which is owned by Viacom Inc, said the show will also feature unseen clips from upcoming summer films.
