Silverman hosting MTV Movie Awards


Sarah Silverman has been tapped to host the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, which will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk on June 3.

"The other day I sat down too hard and sprained my labia majora; I'm OK, but I took it as a sign from God to host the MTV Movie Awards," said Silverman, star of Comedy Central's "The Sarah Silverman Program."

MTV president Christina Norman praised Silverman's "irreverent, no-holds-barred sarcasm and humor" and said she's "just the person to orchestrate the madness and keep everyone guessing about who'll be her next target."

As previously announced, the awards will be executive produced by Mark Burnett. Performers, nominees and presenters will be announced at a later date.
