The MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, and guys, not only is our little buddy Taylor Lautner nominated for best shirtless performance, but Kim Kardashian just revealed that she'll be presenting. Joy! The pregnant reality star took to her blog to express her excitement at the opportunity, but didn't give any details as to what award she'll be handing out, or whether or not baby daddy Kanye West will let her finish, or if he feels Beyonce deserved the honor.
To tell the truth, I'm mildly interested in watching how the crowd reacts when Kim walks out on stage to hand out the Moon Man. It will be a real, honest, unfiltered temperature gauge on her popularity, or lack thereof.
The MTV audience isn't afraid to tell it like it is -- it's not like they're high brow movie producers, actors, or otherwise "dignified" guests along the lines of those who attend the Oscars or, hell, even the Golden Globes.
Point is, no one would be shown booing Kim at any other awards show other than one held by MTV. Now that she's pregnant and is, dare I say, losing some of her luster (not because she's with child, but because her fake marriage and sudden pregnancy have made her so over-exposed, it's becoming intolerable), how will fans react?
MTV is owned by Viacom (not Comcast, which owns E!), so presumably, Kim won't get any special treatment. MTV's not incentivized to make her look good.
Maybe everyone loves Kim more than ever and my finger's far from the pulse, but maybe, just maybe, Kim will hear what "fans" really think when she steps up to that podium.
I'm not saying I'm hoping for it, I'm just saying it's a possibility.
How do you think the crowd will react to Kim?
