Best and Worst: Conan O'Brien
I was pretty stoked that they got late night talk show host Conan O'Brien to emcee the evening's festivities (which would have been an even bigger win for the network if he had happened to be the one to take David Letterman's gig). It was a real host, rather than just some stunt with a comedy star or whatever. But beyond a great opening bit (featuring 49 star cameos), he was largely MIA. Hosts don't tend to infest the MTV Movie Awards or anything but it sure seems like they're around more than just the opening, some intros and a few pre-recorded bits, right? (OK, the Best Kiss Fight thing was funny.) When you have someone like Conan O'Brien, take advantage. Maybe the fact is he was a great choice, yes, but not necessarily for a show like this.
