Andy Samberg to Host 2009 MTV Movie Awards

Andy Samberg to Host 2009 MTV Movie AwardsSubmit Comment
MTV has announced that "SNL" star Andy Samberg will host the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, which will premiere live on MTV, Sunday May 31st from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA.

"Andy's connection with the MTV audience is so strong...it's electric," said Stephen Friedman, General Manager of MTV. "The Lonely Island's digi-shorts are genius. We can't wait to see what subversive take he'll have on our audience's favorite movies of the year. We, like Andy's many fans, are thrilled he's decided to grace MTV with his unique talent."

"I'm super excited to host the movie awards," said Samberg. "I grew up watching the show and a lot of the past hosts are heroes of mine. Plus my friends and I were writers for the show prior to working at SNL, so it will be a sweet and satisfying homecoming. I can't wait to act really important."

Samberg joins the ranks of past hosts such as Ben Stiller, Jimmy Fallon, Mike Myers and Justin Timberlake to name a few.

Samberg, along with his Lonely Island partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, have recently released their first full-length album, "Incredibad." The album quickly became the first comedy album to hold the title as the top selling album on iTunes.

Samberg, and SNL writers and sketch directors Schaffer and Taccone, are best known for their innovative SNL Digital Shorts which have re-invigorated the series. The trio's most praised shorts -- "D**k in a Box" and "J**z in My Pants" -- are currently reigning over Hulu, and are among the Top five selling videos on iTunes. The three have also served on the writing teams for two previous MTV Movie Awards.

Nominees for the 2009 MTV Movie Awards will be announced soon.

Why? Without his digital shorts, he's dull as hell. Would have been great had Fox picked up their pilot, Awesometown. That sh*t is hilarious. I bet somewhere along the line after they did the shorts on SNL, Fox came sniffing around wanting them to do something.
