LOS ANGELES -- Conan O'Brien will be serving up buckets of golden popcorn.
O'Brien announced March 4 on his TBS talk show Conan he's hosting this year's MTV Movie Awards. The annual movie celebration that honours winners with popcorn-shaped trophies is scheduled for April 13 at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
"After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honoured to announce I am hosting MTV's second most-prestigious awards show," the comedian joked in a statement.
It marks the first time O'Brien has hosted the MTV Movie Awards. He previously hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2002 and 2006.
