The 50-year-old comedian licked the golden popcorn award as he said it’s his “lifelong dream” to host the show.
Conan said on Tuesday evening, “After eight years of intense negations, I am honured to announce I am hosting MTV’s second most prestigious awards show”.
The event takes place at The Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles with Hollywood celebrities up for the golden popcorn award.
O’Brien made the big announcement on his TBS show, telling the audience that all the other awards shows are “garbage”.
He said, “There’s only one award in the world that truly matters. I’m talking about the MTV Movie Award. The golden popcorn. Isn’t she beautiful? I am proud to announce that I Conan O’Brien will fulfil my lifelong dream and host the MTV movie awards”.
Previous hosts include Russell Brand, Aziz Ansari, Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, and Rebel Wilson.
The nominations for the MTV Movie Awards in categories such as Best Villain, Best Kiss and Best Breakthrough Performance will be announced on March 6.
We adore Conan and are certain he’ll do an awesome job of hosting the show.
