Though I generally do watch the MTV Movie Awards on a yearly basis out of necessity to stay culturally relevant, I will admit that it's generally not an awards show I take seriously. This year, however, it looks like the annual awards show might have a few surprises up its sleeve: According to reports, one of this year's best breakout comedians, Amy Schumer, has been enlisted to host the MTV Movie Awards when it airs in spring of next year.
