Next year will be a good one for Amy Schumer: She's got a hit Comedy Central show ("Inside Amy Schumer"), her first major movie (the Judd Apatow-directed "Trainwreck," which she also wrote) due in theaters, and now, she's been selected to host the 2015 MTV Movie Awards.
Schumer announced the good news on Twitter Wednesday, posting a pic of herself holding up a prescription pill bottle.
In a statement, Schumer kept up her offbeat shtick, writing, "I am honored to be hosting the awards. I will carry the audience with me like a teen mom #breaktheinternet #breakmywater."
For its part, MTV praised the comedienne as the perfect choice to emcee the 24th annual event.
"Wickedly funny and sharply insightful, Amy Schumer is perhaps the most ascendant talent in comedy today, and she's on the brink of an epic year," said MTV president Stephen Friedman in a statement. "We are thrilled to work with Amy to create an unpredictable and hilarious showcase for Hollywood's biggest blockbusters and brightest stars in what promises to be the most combustible Movie Awards ever."
The MTV Movie Awards are set to air on April 12, 2015.
