Rebel Wilson to host 2013 MTV Movie Awards

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.

She's sexy

MTV hasn't put on a good awards show in years.

At least it will be the last time Twilight is eligible for anything.

LOL, r6

On Leno last night to promote MTV Awards. She's getting really big. She needs to lose some lbs. before she gets into McCarthy territory.

She has a very funny twitter.

She's the white Precious, R6

by Miareply 904/10/2013

Twilight is not nominated this year, R5. Thank god for that.

by Miareply 1004/10/2013

Who??? I must be getting old at just 30.

by Miareply 1104/10/2013


She's not American, so no.

by Miareply 1204/10/2013

She's adorable. Love her!

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?

by Miareply 1704/11/2013

Love her!

Watching now. I actually like Rebel, although I thought Pitch Perfect was shit.

I read that RuPaul brought Alyssa as his data lol.

by Miareply 2004/14/2013

date* not data

Associative typo.

by Miareply 2104/14/2013

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.

by Miareply 2204/14/2013

I've never heard of her or "Pitch Perfect". Is this the best they can get? How sad.

by Miareply 2304/14/2013

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...

by Miareply 2404/14/2013

Rebel's costumes seemed way to tight for her.

by Miareply 2504/14/2013

I think she's tremendous!

by Miareply 2604/14/2013

I Thought Rebel looked very sexy.

by Miareply 2704/14/2013

Wished Zac Efron had dropped his pants instead of Seth and Danny.

by Miareply 2804/14/2013

She is a very talented comedic actress but she sucks as a host. Though she did do a great job with the opening choreography.

This position must be very familiar to Taylor

by Miareply 3104/15/2013

She should've stared off into space and acted oblivious more. She wasn't nearly creepy enough.

by Miareply 3204/15/2013

She's disgusting.
