Conan O'Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

The presenter announced on his TBS talk show 'Conan' last night (04.03.14) that he will be hosting the high-profile awards ceremony on April 13 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

He joked: ''After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honoured to announce I am hosting MTV's second most prestigious awards show.''

The star has plenty of experience hosting televised ceremonies, having previously fronted the Primetime Emmy Awards in both 2002 and 2006.

Jimmy Fallon, Aziz Ansari, Russell Brand and Sarah Silverman have all hosted the MTV Movie Awards in the past, with Rebel Wilson taking charge of last year's ceremony.

Conan, who is known for his self-deprecating humour, will be at hand to deliver the coveted golden popcorn statuettes to this year's winners.

The MTV Movie Awards will also feature sneak previews of the summer's most anticipated films with never-before seen footage.

Nominations go live tomorrow (06.03.14) on

Conan started his career as a writer on 'Saturday Night Live', but his big break came with 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' in 1993. After a brief stint replacing Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show', Conan began hosting his own show again, simply entitled 'Conan'.
