With the MTV Movie Awards less than a month away, it’s time to start name-dropping the talented cast of characters scheduled to present Golden Popcorn trophies on Sunday, June 5.
In addition to the previously announced Nicki Minaj, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Selena Gomez, Emma Stone, Cameron Diaz, Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy, Shia LaBeouf, Patrick Dempsey and Josh Duhamel, we are pleased to reveal a second batch of equally high-caliber presenters: Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride.
“Eclipse” leads the pack of 2011 MTV Movie Awards nominees with eight nods, including Best Movie, Best Fight and Best Kiss. “Inception” snagged the second-most nominations (seven), followed by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1,” which received six nods.
Hosted by Jason Sudeikis, the 20th annual MTV Movie Awards will air live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET. Head to MovieAwards.MTV.com to vote for a winner in every category until June 4. Voting for Best Movie will stay open throughout the awards show — meaning you’ll have a chance to affect the night’s biggest prize until the very last minute.
“I’m sincerely flattered that the folks from the Mostly Teenage Viewers network have invited me to host this year, and I look forward to keeping the streak of flawless and critically lauded movie awards show hosting in 2011 alive,” “Saturday Night Live” castmember Sudeikis said about the big gig.
“Smart and funny is the new rock and roll for our audience — and that combo pretty much sums up Jason,” said Stephen Friedman, president of MTV. “He is a smartass and a gentleman who never goes for the easy or obvious joke. Because of that, he is the ideal Movie Awards host, and we are confident with him anchoring the show, our audience is in store for unexpected and crazy moments with Hollywood’s biggest stars and musicians.”
