Jessica Alba To Host MTV Movie Awards

In an interestingly titled press release, we learn that Jessica Alba will be the “Leading Lady of the 2006 MTV Movie Awards.” While there is no doubt that Jessica Alba is extremely attractive, she’s an odd choice to hold an awards show. She does fit the MTV demographic, but can she entertain a crowd for three hours?

Here’s part of the press release:

Ending the eager speculation of who will land the starring role, MTV today announced that Jessica Alba will take the spotlight as leading lady of the “2006 MTV Movie Awards.” Star of both big screen and small, Alba will host the MTV ceremony, as well as star in its leading role as this year’s show promises to be more than an award show, but a movie unto itself. Jessica Alba is also up for three nominations at this year’s event including “Best Hero” and “Best On-Screen Team” for her performance in the “Fantastic Four” (20th Century Fox), along with “Sexiest Performance” for her role in “Sin City” (Dimension Films), a film also up for “Best Movie” honors. Filming June 3rd at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA, the “2006 MTV Movie Awards” will premiere to audiences nationwide on Thursday, June 8th at 9pm ET/PT on MTV.

“The MTV Movie Awards is like a three-ring circus and I’m thrilled they asked me to be this year’s ringmaster,” said Jessica Alba.
