“Parks and Recreation” star Aziz Ansari will host this year’s MTV Movie Awards, MTV announced today.
It will be Ansari’s first time hosting the awards show, and booking the comedian was a no-brainer for the network.
“Our audience fell in love with Aziz on ‘Human Giant.’ They followed him to the movies, TV and stand-up, and connect with him daily online,” MTV’s General Manager Stephen Friedman said in a statement. “Aziz is the perfect host for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards as he will bring his innovative comedy and distinctive style to the movie industry's most rebellious night on television.”
Ansari, for his part, is thrilled that he got the gig over an MTV reality show star. "I’m so happy Ronnie from ‘Jersey Shore’ was unavailable and this exciting opportunity was able to come my way,” he said in a statement.
Nominees for the awards, which include categories like “Best Kiss,” “Best WTF Moment” and “Best Scared as [Expletive] Performance,” are soon to be announced, according to MTV’s statement. The show will air live on Sunday, June 6, from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.

Thanks, i will bookmark your site
We really like this webpage. Iwish I could come here everyday\all day. Please do keep posting more information!
He's from South Carolina, idiots. And if you listen to his comedy acts or have seen him party you would know he's about as far from a Muslim fundamentalist as you can get.
oh well, eddie murphy is one of the best comedians that i have seen, his jokes are topnotch and super the best `*"
Eddie Murphy is the number 1 guy when it comes to comedy, he is quite famous and talented indeed':`
you can say that eddie murphy is the best comedian of all times.**
Eddie Murphy is the best comedian that i have known, he is a really funny guy.;:,
i love all Eddie Murphy movies. i like also the movie DAVE where he co stars with Elizabeth Banks.*";
finally a brown muslim guy, making GOOD news!
huge fan of this dude, funny as heck!
His stand up is HILARIOUS!!
RAAAAAAAANDY! F***in and frying chicken since '86!
Never heard of him.
This mofo is a riot.
Yes! I just got word that I will be presenting the award for Best Movie of the Year. C'mon Fools Gold! I hope that still qualifies......
Congrats to Aziz he is too funny and cute!!!!!
PERFECT choice! This guy is on his way to starring in his own movie. He was great as RAAAAAAAANDY(with 8 A's) in Funny People, Stole the show in Observe & Report, his skits on funnyordie are hilarious. This will be a must see awards show.
He's born and brought up in South Carolina, he's got a perfectly respectable southern drawl, and he graduated from NYU. Oh, and his parents are from India. But most importantly, he's an entertainer – and funny as heck!
I'd luv 2watch him.He's astonishing...but why not movie stars like EDDIE MURPHY,SAMUEL JACKSON
Laugh till you fall off the cushion
also, i think you're just angry because you're ugly.
sara jane, are you an idiot? how is he a supporter of terrorism? just because of his name and / or possible religion (who knows what he practices anyway). just because he might be muslim does not mean he is a terrorist. with your reasoning all catholic priests are child molesters. moron, grow the f* up. your ignorance disgusts me.
he is a supporter of those who support terrorism elsewhere. he is a front supported by those who seek to harm.
This will be the first time I will watch MTV in 8 years with the downward spiral it's been. This guy is hilarious. Check out the Shutter Bugs skits.
It's ED! "Sa-sa-sa syphilis, syphilis, syphilis,"
Ansari is awesome!
He'll do a good job.
CHECK OUT this:
The name is actually Desi Arnez Jr. and no he has not been funny since singing Babaloo with his father in the 60's. You would think MTV would have found someone more current like Chevy Chase.
he IS muslim, but that doesn't have to do with anything! aziz is a talented guy, and he worked his way up. i'm quite proud of him!! he's one of the unique talented actors out there and he's actually a funny comedian!
yea check out his Raaaaaandy bit online. Funny guy man. He's a little crazy which is awesome for MTV. Might have his Eddie Murphy moment on this one.
Glad to hear it!!!!
His 1 hour standup on comedu central was awesome!
The vast majority of Bollywood performers are Hindu, not Muslim. Start reading the newspapers (National Enquirer does not count).
they should have got the guy from the hangover, or at least used them both as hosts
Now Obama and his Muslim's are taking over MTV too.
Huh? He's got a Muslim name. Guess one of them Bollywood dudes. LOL.
Thats Awesome! hes great.
I saw him last year at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal – he was HILARIOUS, I hope he comes back! I never watch the awards but I might with him
Was he on Scrubs??
His bit on his Hot Tub, um, exploits as RAAAAAAAANDY is priceless. Most Baller Death of All Time!
Talents do exist outside of the box.
AWESOME!!! I love Aziz!!! He is HILARIOUS! My husband and I met him in Vegas last year, he's a really nice guy too!!! I'm so glad he's blowin' up cause he is freakin' funny! I bet Darwish & Harris are stoked too! LOL
big ups. Dude rocks.
Congrats from Bennettsville!
Check youtube for his Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel spots – he describes partying with Kanye. Plus, his DVD is really funny.
observe and report!!...hahahah..
that dude is the bomb. he had a funny part in Serve and protect with Seth Rogan, that part in the movie was hilarious, you have to check it out.
Trust me, this guy "is" funny. Looking forward to seeing his career blossom.
I don't know him from Human Giant, but from Scrubs and now Parks and Recreation. I like him a lot – I hope he does well!!
Check him out on Funny or Die as his character RAAAAAAAANDY!!!!!
'Human Giant' was one of the best sketch comedy shows around, in my opinion. My wife and I still reference the sketch in which Paul makes up his own endings to the jingles. Glad to see Aziz continuing his success!
Aziz is hilarious, check him out in Adam Sandler's latest 'Funny People' on DVD, and look for his stand-up on Comedy Central or DVD. His MTV show 'Human Giant' was hilarious.
LOL, I have no idea who this is, but he already made me laugh. I may just watch this year.
