This Sunday, MTV will once again honor the top movies at the 2014 Movie Awards. Conan O’Brien will serve as this year’s host. Every year, MTV does not disappoint when it comes to getting some of the biggest names in Hollywood to host the annual show. They usually stick to getting an actor from the comedy genre to host the show. Much like the Oscars, films are honored based on their actors, genre and overall impact on today’s culture. Big movies have swept the awards in the past, such as The Twilight Saga, The Harry Potter series, and most recently, The Hunger Games. The hosts always find a way to spoof the biggest movies of the year by recreating some of their iconic scenes. Take a look at some of the best hosts the Movie Awards has seen so far. Comment below with your favorite host for the show!
