Sarah Silverman Will Host the 2007 MTV Movie Awards

Ellen DeGeneres ruled the Oscars this year, and another funny lady just got the emcee gig at MTV. The channel announced today that comedian Sarah Silverman will host this year's MTV Movie Awards. The show, which will be broadcast live for the first time ever, will be held on Sunday, June 3, in Universal City and produced by "Survivor" superstar Mark Burnett.

I've been hot and cold on Silverman over the years, but lately, I've definitely been warming up to her more. Her Comedy Central show, "The Sarah Silverman Program," is innovative and always delivers a few good laughs, and her scene in The Aristocrats had me cracking up. Sure, Silverman sometimes tries a little bit too hard with her gross-out humor, but then, she'll whip out some deliciously sarcastic remark, like this quote from the MTV News article: "I'm really excited about 'Wild Hogs!' It's so well-crafted!"

MTV is probably asking for it by hiring the notoriously filthy Silverman for its first live-broadcast Movie Awards, but at least it will be fun to watch what happens.

i think sara's the best comic today. i could be wrong, but it seems like people don't "get" her humor by taking it face value. she's making commentaries on things that people accept without question. for example, her joke about loving a rare diamond that can only be found at the tips of the spinal cords of ethiopian babies. obviously that's an outlandish thing to say, but she's pointing out the hypocrisy in someone who gets offended by that outlandish joke, yet doesn't care about the reality of all the people who have died because of the diamond industry. her whole schtick is this sheltered, privileged, upper-class JAP who deals in casual bigotry and who's completely oblivious to the world around her (you know, like celebrities). in other words, she's making fun of people like that. personally, i find mtv more obnoxious in its shameless peddling of shows featuring rampant narcissistic teens and twentysomethings.

I think MTV just made the worst move ever - even though I don't watch the MTV awards. I went to the Spike Video Game Awards where she made a guest appearance - yea she had some funny lines but more than anything she was hurtful, extremely offensive, and really not funny at all. Yes, I know she is a "shock value" comic - but I just don't find her funny and I know a handful of people who think she "ruined" the VGA's with her "humor". Personally, I don't find anything creative or innovative about her. And sorry for all of the bunny-ears :)

she's mildly humorous i don't know about this. she's def one of my least favorite comics out there. not that the movie awards are ever THAT exciting anyway..

i'm surprised no one said anything about her being a home wrecker. i always kinda thought she broke up jimmy's marriage, but who knows for sure. the bits of her show on CC i have seen have been pretty funny though.

I guess I won't be watching it this year. I barely got through her hosting stint on this year's Independent Spirit Awards. I cringed 95% of the time she was on.

She has great one-liners, but an entire awards show hosted by her is a bit of a stretch.

Sarah Silverman is hilarious. She's one of the few creative and innovative comedians out there.

Wow, I can't believe so many of you don't like her! I think she's the funniest girl alive, she'll make a great host and hopefully freak out a few of the snobbier, more boring celebs.

She's annoying and takes it way too far. Its one thing to be cutting edge, but its another thing to be downright mean and ignorant. She's going to insult one of those celebs and they are going to knock her block off! Won't be watching...Poor choice for a LIVE HOST.

I'm on the fence about her...I agree she tries too hard

I was watching an episode of her show last week online and I could *not* get through it, she was so obnoxious.

I don't know if I find her funny, I've seen her perform standup once on TV and I've seen a few clips of her show. But I can never actually remember if I found her funny or not. :s

I thought i was alone. I think sarah has her funny moments. but she does try to hard- i think MTV awards show are going down. They can't find anyone to make the awards great anymore. ****"Everything in life is only for now."-Avenue Q****

I thought she was hilarious in The Aristocrats, but she annoys me so much these days. It's the same old schtick over and over, which annoys me because she's like the only example some people use of a woman who is actually funny. Grrrrrrrrr. It makes me so angry. That, and her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel is a pretty huge tool. Sorry, sorry, got a little carried away.

WORST CALL EVER! It's not that I don't like Sarah but come on MTV - this is one of your best events and with all the amazing summer blockbusters coming out this year this is the best you could do?

Wow, giving her the reigns of a live show could be a disaster. A funny disaster, but a disaster nonetheless...haha!

My verdict is still out on her; at times, she seems to be trying too hard.
