He adds: “Hopefully this is a stepping stone to hosting the Nickelodeon Toddlers’ Choice Awards. It’s a new awards show that I’m pitching to Nickelodeon. The thing about that is, you don’t know who’s going to win. It could be like, Favorite Movie: Peanut Butter. ‘But that’s not even a movie!’ ‘Well, they want peanut butter, so that’s the winner.‘ “ We asked the breakout comedian/Human Giant star/Bieber nemesis, who also appears in June 4’s Get Him to the Greek, for five reasons to tune in to MTV’s night of golden popcorn. See his answers after the jump. (Hint: One involves Michael Bay and genitalia. If that doesn’t get you to take a look, we don’t know what will!)

1. “The Awards! Who will win Best Villain? Will it be the Nixon administration in The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers or will it be Systemic Urban Inequality in The Blind Side?”

2. “Watch me promote my upcoming film Sex and the City 2, where I take over the role of Charlotte.”

3. “Watch, not one, but three parodies of Invictus that I have planned. (Keep an eye out for cameos from several people that were interviewed for the documentary Food, Inc.)”

4. “I will finally address my longstanding feud with Forest Whitaker.”

5. “To top last year’s Bruno-Eminem moment, Michael Bay has agreed to whip his b—s out at some point during the show.”
