MTV Movie Awards 2009 are here! It’s that time of year again, when all the beautiful people come out to Los Angeles to see who is going to be made fun of this time around. Although the weirdest part about this show for me is still the nominees. How is The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Slumdog Millionaire, and Twilight still up for an award? We have so many new films to argue about now!
Hosting an awards show takes a lot of guts. You are going to make a lot of people (a.k.a celebrities present at the awards show and sitting ten feet away from you) angry, and the angrier you make them the better you do. And to their credit, MTV does this best (although I can’t stand them).
So who gets the honors of entertaining, entertainments biggest stars this year? The honor goes to none other than former writer for the awards show and new Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg. The I Love You, Man and “Dick in a Box” (watch video now) star promises that the show will deliver.
“It’s going to be action packed. There’s going to be some surprises — nothing I can divulge, but it will involve celebrities. It’s going to be great. There’s going to be some pre-taped stuff, some digital shorts-style stuff, and a lot of fun collaborations. And obviously Kings of Leon and Eminem are performing, so they’ll be great. And the list of presenters keeps getting longer and longer. It’s a lot of really rad people.”
Why is Eminem performing when the last movie he did was 8 Mile? As Screencrave reported before, they will be airing the new sneak peak trailer for New Moon. Presenters include stars with big names who have movies coming out this summer like: Will Ferrell, Sandra Bullock, Megan Fox and my absolute favorite Denzel Washington. Sadly, all of them are in absolutely horrible movies, so I guess this is where failed movies go to suffer.
The shows airs Sunday May 31st @ 9pm ET in Los Angeles, CA.
Who do you think should win the biggest award of the night, Best Movie?
The Dark Knight, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Iron Man, Slumdog Millionaire, Twilight

I’d like to leave you with a little taste of what you can expect from our host this Sunday…
