AS SEEN ON TV: Channing Tatum to Present at 2009 MTV Movie Awards

Channing Tatum to Present at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards

Much like Jimmey Kimmel Live was his first nighttime talk show appearance, Channing Tatum will soon appear as a presenter for the first time (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) on a major awards show.

MTV announced today that Chan and his 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' Sienna Miller will be joining Sandra Bullock, Dwayne Johnson, Bradley Cooper, Abigail Breslin, and Sofia Vassilieva (Medium) as presenters at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. Denzel Washington, Cameron Diaz, Ryan Reynolds, Vanessa Hudgens, Leighton Meester, Jonah Hill and Lil Wayne were previously announced as presenters.

Sure to be a dream come true for 'Twilight' fans everywhere, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will present an exclusive scene from 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' at the awards show. The never-before-seen clip is a first look at the much anticipated next installment in the Summit Entertainment vampire film franchise that became a pop culture phenomenon.

Eminem will take to the stage to perform music from his anticipated new album Relapse (available May 19) and Kings Of Leon will perform live on MTV for the first time ever, treating viewers to their rock anthem "Use Somebody" from their hit album Only By The Night.

The 2009 MTV Movie Awards marks the first year in which the final nominees were decided on by the fans. Viewers can decide the golden popcorn destiny of their favorite flicks by visiting MovieAwards.MTV.com before May 27th to vote for their favorite film moments and actors. The category of "BEST MOVIE" will be a fight to the end as voting for favorite film of the year will remain open throughout the live show.

From Robert Pattinson's native London to Dev Patel's native India, MTV fans around the world can watch the action unfold as the 2009 MTV Movie Awards will air on MTV channels around the world in 161 countries. Now you can find the 2009 MTV Movie Awards con subtitulos en Espanol on Saturday, June 13 at 5p.m. ET/4p.m. Central, on MTV Tr3s. Go to www.mtvtr3s.com to find out which channel on your cable or satellite provider MTV Tr3s is carried on.

MovieAwards.MTV.com is the official site for the show where fans can visit to vote and stay to check out show promos starring Andy Samberg and some of today's hottest celebs, get up-to-date info and watch MTV News nominee interviews. During the voting window fans can also head over to facebook.com/mtv, myspace.com/mtv, Flixster and IMDB.com for a special "Movie Awards" social module that will enable them to cast their votes, take polls, watch promo videos, get special news and tweets about the show and special links to "Movie Awards" contests.

This year fans will also be able to enjoy exclusive, behind-the-scenes "Movie Awards" content directly from their iPhones through the new "2009 MTV Movie Awards Application." The application, developed by the creators at Kyte, enables MTV to rapidly deliver new content to fans on a daily basis. The application is available for a free download in the Apple Store now.

Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg will host the show, which will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA (where Chan and I attended the 2008 Teen Choice Awards) on and airs Sunday, May 31 at 9:00 PM Eastern/ 8:00 PM Central.

UPDATE 5/20/2009: MTV revealed today that during the show, viewers will get an exclusive sneak peek at two summer blockbusters: "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint will present (via telecast from England) a never-before-seen clip from "Half-Blood Prince," the sixth movie adaptation of the J.K. Rowling boy-wizard book series. Megan Fox and director Michael Bay will be on-hand to show off a fresh clip from "Revenge of the Fallen," the sequel to the 2007 box office smash about shape-shifting robots. "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf joins the list of Hollywood presenters.
