MTV Movie Awards: Amy Schumer Scars Anna Kendrick in First Promo

MTV Movie Awards Promo

How did Amy Schumer manage to land her gig as host of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, exactly? If you ask Anna Kendrick, she’d say it’s probably just because Chelsea Handler was unavailable.

In this first promo for the April 12 awards show, Schumer surprises Kendrick at home(?), pestering her about whether or not she’s related to Kendrick Lamar or Annie — like, the fictional musical character — prompting Kendrick to give Schumer a lesson in how names do (and do not) work.

And for all you South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut fans out there, Schumer inadvertently pays homage to a certain “ping-pong ball trick.” So get pumped for that.

Your thoughts on Schumer as host? Watch the promo below, then drop ’em in the comments section.

    Very crude and unfunny… does not make me want to watch this show at all… this is the best they could come up with?

  2. Cookie says:

    Amy’s one of the most annoying-yet-popular comedians out there. MTV, you messed up big time.

  3. Tran says:

    Anna Kendrick should have been the perfect choice to host the MTV Movie Awards. Guess America is wondering WHO THE (BLEEP) IS AMY SCHUMER?

  4. Dave says:

    Remember when the MTV Movie Awards were somewhat relevant? Before they started handing out awards to Twilight every year?

    Good choice

    Love Amy. So funny.

    Amy Schumer lived in the house across the street from me during my freshman year of HS.

    Lol all the people saying Amy Schumer isn’t funny and how Anna Kendrick should be hosting the MTV Movie Awards. IT’S THE MTV MOVIE AWARDS. IT’S COMPLETE TRASH. It doesn’t matter who hosts because it’s not an important awards show. It’s not the Oscars, or the Grammys, or the Golden Globes, or the Tonys, or the Emmys. IT’S THE MTV MOVIE AWARDS. LOL
