The highlight of Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards came when Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed up as Austrian fashion reporter Bruno, floated across the room on wires, but then somehow fell and landed face down in Eminem's lap (his butt in Eminem's face). Subsequently Eminem stormed out of the show.
The award show's head comedy writer, Scott Aukerman, is now admitting it was not a spontaneous mishap. The entire scene was choreographed
. In fact, Paris Hilton had reportedly been Cohen's first choice of victim
, but she declined to participate.
I can't imagine this revelation will surprise anyone. It would only have been a surprise if the stunt wasn't staged.
