MTV Movie Awards- Borat/Cohen To Benefit, J. Alba To Host

Posted by Molli Fire on Tuesday, 8May07

Speaking of award ceremonies, more names are being released for the roster of stars that will be hosting the MTv Movie Awards on June 3rd. Hosts with most so far include – Shia LaBeouf, John Travolta, Josh Duhamel, Amanda Bynes, Jessica Alba, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse, and Chris Tucker.


But while the Sunday event — to be broadcast live for the first time ever, at 8 p.m. ET — might appear to be mad about movies, it wouldn’t be an MTV show without a few musical moments to steal the spotlight. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of instantly classic performances like the one Gnarls Barkley gave last year and Eminem and D12 did in 2004, chart-toppers Rihanna and Jay-Z will take the stage together to perform the single “Umbrella” from her upcoming album Good Girl Gone Bad.

Also competing for the most water-cooler-worthy performance will be soulful British singer/songwriter Winehouse, set to play her international hit “Rehab.” Winehouse isn’t only a record-maker but a record-setter, recently becoming the highest-debuting British female artist in the history of the Billboard albums chart.
Fans can vote by visiting before May 29, or from their mobile phones by texting “MOVIES” to 22422. Voting is also available by dialing toll free to 1-877-MTV-VOTE, through which fans can support their favorite nominees in each category. For the first time ever, the 2007 MTV Movie Awards will offer live voting during the show, with one category remaining open for viewers.
