Amy Schumer on Hosting the MTV Movie Awards: 'People Are Going to Be Mad'

Apr 12, 2015

Comedian Amy Schumer won't necessarily have her audience's feelings in mind when she hosts the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday evening.

The Inside Amy Schumer star told reporters in Los Angeles last week that she admires previous hosts Jon Stewart, Seth MacFarlane and Ricky Gervais, who were accused of offensive hosting gigs in recent years, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

"I always think hosts do a good job, honestly. And then I'll hear, 'People are pissed,'" Schumer said. "I know people are going to be mad, they're going to be mad, and that's fine."

Still, the Comedy Central star—who was the first MTV Movie Awards host to announce the gig herself—drew some boundaries for her set, saying that it wouldn't be roast-style and that "there won't be any jokes about any recent deaths or people changing their gender." But, she added, expect her to "go after" Kevin Hart "pretty hard."

The MTV Movie Awards will air on Sunday at 8 p.m. E.T. from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
