Emma Stone is going to the 2012 MTV Movie Awards already a winner. The A-list actress will be honored with the first-ever "MTV Trailblazer Award" for her diverse résumé that defies genre and keeps her fans guessing.

When the show goes live from the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, 2011 MTV Movie Award winner Stone will blaze another trail as the inaugural winner in this new category for her ability to connect with MTV viewers in films like the gut-busting comedy "Easy A," for which she won the Best Comedic Performance golden popcorn last year.

This year, in addition to winning the Trailblazer prize, Stone is also up for a number of other prizes including Best Female Performance for her rom-com "Crazy, Stupid, Love," as well as Best Kiss for her smooch with co-star Ryan Gosling in the flick. She's also being recognized in the Best Cast category for her work in the critically acclaimed "The Help."

Russell Brand will host the show, and the night will get two musical performances from buzzy band Fun., as well as "Work Hard, Play Hard" MC Wiz Khalifa.

Leading up to the big show, MTV News will host MTV Sneak Peek Week, set to go down at 5 Towers on Universal CityWalk. Beginning Tuesday, May 29, through Friday, June 1, MTV will screen some of this summer's hottest films for a selection of very lucky fans. The lineup includes "Snow White and the Huntsman" (Tuesday), "That's My Boy" (Wednesday), "Magic Mike" (Thursday) and "Rock of Ages" (Friday).

Can't make the screening? Well, we've got your back. During the weeklong festivities, you can catch some of the castmembers from each film on MTV at 11 p.m. ET to introduce an exclusive clip from their movie! And, of course, the fun doesn't stop there. Immediately following the on-air presentation, MTV News' Josh Horowitz will be on hand for a Q&A with the actors live on MTV.com. You can follow along with the action on Twitter using the hashtag #MTVSneak.
