Brad Pitt, a potential 2014 MTV Movie Award nominee for this summer’s zombie-apocalypse film “World War Z,” has signed on to present the award for Movie of the Year at this Sunday’s 2013 MTV Movie Awards ceremony. And Pitt isn’t the only star coming to the show. “Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage will present the Comedic Genius Award to his “Elf” co-star Will Ferrell in a moment that will surely provide the Internet with plenty of GIF fodder.
Movie of the Year, the biggest award of the night, is an apt award for Pitt to present considering that the actor is one of the biggest stars in the world. The “Moneyball” and “Inglorious Basterds” actor will be handing off the Golden Popcorn to one of last year’s biggest movies — “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Django Unchained,” “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Ted.” Only time will tell if the winner is human, super human, or a foul-mouthed stuffed animal.
Even though Dinklage has risen to prominence as the intense Tyrion Lannister on the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” he’s no stranger to the work of Comedic Genius Award recipient, Will Ferrell. The actor starred opposite Ferrell in 2003’s “Elf,” ensuring that both Dinklage and Ferrell will be part of holiday festivities for decades to come. Will Ferrell is also a nominee in the Best On-Screen Duo category alongside Zach Galifianakis for their work in “The Campaign.” Ferrell’s comedy resume reads like a top ten list of the decade’s best comedies, including hits like “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “Old School,” “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “The Other Guys” and “Step Brothers.”
These monumental awards will be given out during the Rebel Wilson-hosted MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14, airing live from the Sony Pictures Studio Lot in Culver City, California, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
