Mike Myers Is 2008 MTV Movie Awards' Host
Comedian Mike Myers has once again received the honor to be a host to an award event. On Wednesday, April 9, Van Toffler, the president of MTV Networks Music, Logo and Films Group, revealed that the actor known for his alter ego, the British super-spy Austin Powers, has been tapped to be the host of the 17th Annual MTV Movie Awards.
On the choosing of the voice talent behind animation character Shrek in "Shrek" franchise, Toffler reasoned that Myers has managed to bring his best the last time he hosted the event. "Mike Myers blew us away last time he hosted the MTV Movie Awards with his 'Lord of the Dance' and over-the-top musical productions," said the MTV topper in a statement. "He keeps creating iconic film characters that have been etched in the minds of MTV's audiences forever. 'The Love Guru' is sure to spur yet another cultural movement, so we're elated to have Mike back as our host."
On Myers' take, it is reported that "The Cat in the Hat" star who has hosted the event back in 1997 has also expressed his excitement in a statement by comparing the event to a party. The ex-"Saturday Night Live" performer stated, "Hosting the MTV Movie Awards is like a party, but without having to do beer runs in your mom's minivan; we do beer runs in Will Smith's four-story motorhome."
The 2008 MTV Movie Awards is going to be held on June 1 and it will be broadcast live for the second time from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California. The event is known for its unique Golden Popcorn statues as well as its unique nominations, including Best Kiss, Best Villain and Best Fight. The nominees for the event will be announced in May.
