Conan O’Brien hosted the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night. The great ginger brought his trademark wit, 50 very special celebrity cameos, and a shout out to Big Morning Buzz Live‘s Nick Lachey to the show. Our guy, Nick Lachey got to sit down with Conan this morning (YES, IT WAS THIS MORNING) on Big Morning Buzz Live to discuss the show and to get the inside scoop on whether or not Nick Lachey is the greatest Nick of all.
A good MTV Movie Awards host has many roles to fill. He or she has to funny, hip and ready to schmooze the celebrities. O’Brien took this last part to the next level when he gave himself the challenge to feature 50 celebrity cameos in the show’s cold open. O’Brien got the help of Taylor Swift, Lupita Nyong’o and the cast of Noah (amongst others) to help him meet this goal. But who was going to have the honor of being the 50th celebrity?
One of Conan O’Brien’s monologue jokes got a particularly strong reaction on social media. The acerbic comic pointed out that Grumpy Cat was not only asleep, but he had a better seat than Nick Lachey. Lachey got to drill O’Brien on what it was like to host the MTV Movie Awards and O’Brien revealed that in his mind, Nick Lachey is the best Nick. “Nick Lachey trumps Nick Jonas any day,” he declared. “I don’t care what other Nick you can come up with…Nick Nolte, Nick Jonas…none of them! They’re not fit to clean your shoes.”
No wonder Conan O’Brien was so pissed that Grumpy Cat had a better seat than Nick Lachey.
