In the year 2014...
Conan O'Brien has been tapped to host this year's MTV Movie Awards, the news coming Tuesday from both the network and the man of the hour.
"After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV's second-most prestigious awards show," says O'Brien.
Shiny buckets of popcorn honoring the best kisses, fights, gut-wrenching performances and more will be handed out April 13 at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater. The nominees will be revealed Thursday morning.
"I'm humbled, I'm honored and, as of late this morning, I'm contractually obligated," O'Brien cracked after revealing the good news during Conan, getting the audience primed by sweeping replicas of the Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Peabody Award and Nobel Prize off his desk, declaring them all "garbage!"
