Rebel Wilson Confirmed as MTV Movie Awards 2013 Host
Rebel Wilson has been confirmed to host the MTV Movie Awards, as the event’s bosses continue to use comic foils to emcee their annual bash.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Wilson will be hosting the awards for her first time, and will be the first female to host it since Sarah Silverman in 2007. The show has a hit and miss history of hosts, with Jessica Alba proving largely uninspiring in 2006. Lest we forget that Lindsay Lohan also guest hosted one year, in 2004, however she was from the wayward star that she is today.
The news that Wilson was to host the awards came during a first look trailer that aired during the Jersey Shore finale. A relatively recent name to come to the fore of the acting world, her biggest roles came in Bachelorette and this year’s Pitch Perfect, for which she was nominated for a handful of low key awards. She also gave a voice over performance in Ice Age: Continental Drift and appears in the Michael Bay-directed Pain & Gain next year. Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, and Russell Brand are among the other recent hosts of the event, which is traditionally one of the biggest in the MTV awards calendar.
