Chelsea HandlerMTV announced last night that comedian Chelsea Handler will host its 2010 Video Music Awards on Sept. 12.

The E! talk show host takes over VMA duties from British funnyman Russell Brand, who hosted the awards two years in a row. This year's ceremony will take place live at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

Handler is only the third woman to host the VMAs. The intrepid women who went before her: Roseanne Barr in 1994 and Bette Midler at the inaugural VMAs in 1984.

The network has already confirmed several presenters, including 'Gossip Girl''s Penn Badgley, Disney queen Selena Gomez,
'Twilight' vampire Ashley Greene and 'Easy A' star Emma Stone, as well as musicians Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo and Ke$ha.
