It’s official, boys and girls, “Saturday Night Live” star Jason Sudeikis is set to host the MTV Movie Awards when the show goes live June 5 from Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California. Who will win Golden Popcorn statues? What kind of zany antics will go down? Nobody really knows, but one guy who understands what it’s like to host the show is 2010 emcee and “Parks and Recreation” star Aziz Ansari.
So, what words of wisdom does Mr. Ansari have for Sudeikis nearly 12 months after his stint? “It’s so much work, so definitely have a lot of uppers on hand, like just drugs that’ll get you fired up,” he joked to MTV News. “PCP is good to stay up all night, get all the work done. It’s a cool thing though; it’s back in vogue. It’s like Twitter, PCP. It’s like trendy things: Twitter, PCP, Jonas Brothers.”
While we’re not sure he’ll take Ansari’s advice, Sudeikis has made it clear he hopes to do a bang-up job. “I’m sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded Movie Awards show hosting in 2011 alive,” Sudeikis joked.
The MTV Movie Awards nominees — based on your votes at MovieAwards.MTV.com — will be announced Tuesday, at which point you’ll be able to vote for your favorite films and stars in categories like Best Fight, Best Kiss, Biggest Badass Star, Best Villain and, of course, Best Movie. Voting will continue through June 4, though Best Movie will remain open throughout the live ceremony June 5 — meaning you’ll have a chance to affect the night’s biggest prize until the very last minute.
