I can admit with a bellow of passion that I am a huge Conan O’ Brien fan. First off, we have the simple fact that he is a Massachusetts boy. I got real love for all my famous people who come from Mass. That is where I reside, and I do so with much New England pride (even though most of us are rather ornery). He also was a key writer on some of my favorite shows of all time before he landed his show. From The Simpsons to SNL, the best years of both those shows had Coco behind the scenes. So you must know how happy I am to find out that Conan O’ Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards?
I will be honest, as much as I like Rebel Wilson and think she is hilarious in the right roles, the right role for her was NOT hosting the MTV Movie Awards last year. It just really did not work that well at all. Thing is, the reason picking people like Ellen and Conan works so well is they already have a rapport with the celebrities, and it translates really well to a scenario like that. Conan already knows all these people, so to him, it is just like hanging with friends. When we watch shows like this, we can pick up on that. As viewers, the more fun they have, the more fun we have. It really is that simple, and seems the big guys behind the scenes are starting to figure this out.
So Conan O’ Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Again, every time I say that, it just puts this big smile on my face. This also means that Triumph will probably show up. Oh man, this is gonna be good.
