The MTV Movie Awards turn 25 this year (they can rent a car without help!) and Kevin Hart and The Rock have been tasked with hosting quarter-century bash.

The awards show is set to take place April 9th on the Warner Bros. Studio lot and broadcast the following day. This is the first time the show will tape the entirety of the awards outside. In addition, fans will write and direct the promo campaign via interactions with the hosts tomorrow (February 20) at 2:00 p.m. ET across social media using the hashtag #movieawards.

“It’s an honor to be hosting the ‘MTV Movie Awards’ with a guy who’s not only one of the funniest guys on the planet, but who’s often mistaken as my twin, Kevin Hart,” said The Rock AKA Dwayne Johnson in a statement. “We live for our fans and promise to make this an epic, historic unforgettable night for them.”

“I love hosting — it’s my thing," Hart said. “Dwayne and I are the perfect team for the epic 25th anniversary show. It’s going to go down.”
