The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are shaping up to be pitch perfect — for the obvious reason that Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson has been tapped to host the show. We have a feeling she will be to MTV what Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were to the 2013 Golden Globes: pure brilliance.
Fortunately, it won’t be long before the Australian comedienne brings her special brand of hilarity to the star-studded stage: This year’s awards will air live on MTV on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c.
Ted and Django Unchained lead the pack of nominees in categories like Best Shirtless Performance, Best Fight, Best Kiss, and Best WTF Moment. Nowhere to be seen in the Best Kiss category, however, are Twilight co-stars — and four-time Best Kiss winners —Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, whose liplocks in this year’s widely panned Breaking Dawn - Part 2 have been snubbed.
In a completely expected non-twist, awards season darling Jennifer Lawrence is up for five Golden Popcorns, including Best Female Performance for Silver Linings Playbook. The one surprise is that she’s also in the running for Best Scared-as-S**t Performancefor House at the End of the Street, that 2012 horrorfest we totally forgot she was in.
Naturally, we hope J.Law and Rebel become best friends by the end of the night so that they team up for Pitch Perfect 2.
In the meantime, to distract yourself from that beautiful daydream, watch Rebel and Channing Tatum’s amazing promo below:
