Rebel Wilson will emcee the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, the network announced Thursday in a “first look” trailer that aired during the Jersey Shore finale. Set to air on April 14, this is the Pitch Perfect star’s first time hosting, and the first time a woman has hosted since Sarah Silverman’s stint in 2007. On top of the delightful news that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are hosting the Golden Globes this year, we’re hoping the female comedian-as-host trend continues.
After her over-the-top roles in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, we can’t wait to see her signature comedy style on the annual awards show.
In the show’s 20 year history, the hosts have been inconsistent. Remember Jessica Alba in 2006? Lindsay Lohan even hosted one year — but her one-off hosting gig in 2004 was during a more innocent time for the troubled starlet.
Since 2007, single comedian hosts have reclaimed the show, including Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, and Russell Brand. When it comes to keeping an awards show amusing, comedians generally have the advantage over actors. Mindy Kaling for 2014? Just a thought.
Twilight is not nominated this year, R5. Thank god for that.
Who??? I must be getting old at just 30.
[quote]SHE IS MTV'S DEMOGRAPHIC!!!!!
She's not American, so no.
She's adorable. Love her!
[quote]I know everyone hates her, but I actually find her funny.
Uh, who said they hate her? Nobody hates her.
Ugh. That fat cow can fuck off.

Yeah, but don't you hve to be funny to be a comedian?
"The only thing I've ever hosted is this parasitic worm."
Watching now. I actually like Rebel, although I thought Pitch Perfect was shit.
I read that RuPaul brought Alyssa as his data lol.
date* not data
Melissa is bombing. So did Rebel. Why do people associate fat with funny? Jackie Gleason I can understand. But he's about the only one. Hated Belushi so please don't go there. And Chris Farley was just gross.
I've never heard of her or "Pitch Perfect". Is this the best they can get? How sad.
Pitch Perfect is a very good movie and Rebel is the break out star in a great cast...
Taping the award show forgot it was on despite all the hype...
Rebel's costumes seemed way to tight for her.
I think she's tremendous!
I Thought Rebel looked very sexy.
Wished Zac Efron had dropped his pants instead of Seth and Danny.
She is a very talented comedic actress but she sucks as a host. Though she did do a great job with the opening choreography.
