Now that Adam Devine has been tapped to host the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday, May 7, it’s time to vote in our poll below with how you think he’ll do as first-time emcee. Will he be fantastic, meh, or terrible? Devine is mostly known for “Pitch Perfect” and his TV gigs on “Workaholics” and “Modern Family,” but he’s also a successful stand-up comedian.
“The MTV movie and tv awards are gonna be poppin this year cause yours truly is hosting!” Devine wrote on Twitter today. “I’m so excited to bring my weird to LIVE tv!” See the complete list of 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards nominations.
Devine is no stranger to the MTV Awards stage, as he and Rebel Wilson infamously reenacted their Best Kiss victory for “Pitch Perfect 2” at last year’s kudos (watch above). The passionate liplock instantly went viral, which begs the question: Will Devine and Wilson rekindle their brief love affair now that he’s the host?
The decades-long film awards show for the first time this year have branched out to include TV shows and stars. As these kudos often favor box office popcorn flicks like “The Matrix,” “Transformers” and “Twilight,” it’ll be interesting to see where the votes fall on the TV side. Interestingly enough, Devine’s popular network show “Modern Family” was not even nominated.
