Silverman To Host MTV Movie Awards

Sarah Silverman will host this year's MTV Movie Awards, set to air live on June 3 from Los Angeles.

And I want to host that show."

Silverman, with her own eponymous Comedy Central series, has also starred in a film of her one-woman show: "Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic." But despite her long experience in front of an audience, she has some trepidation about the show being aired live for the first time: "I'm not a big swearer or anything, but I still seem to say things that you can't say on basic cable, so ... we're gonna have to have, like, a plan."
