Aubrey Plaza interrupted Will Ferrell’s acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards, then left the building.
MTV officials confirmed Monday that the “Parks and Recreation” actress was asked to leave the ceremony after unexpectedly walking on stage and trying to take Ferrell’s trophy as he accepted the Comedic Genius Award.
The irreverent awards show, held Sunday at Sony Pictures Studios, is known for its quirky stunts, but it’s unclear whether the actress’ stage-crashing move was planned.
He held tight to the golden popcorn and the actress returned to her seat in the front row.
Rebel Wilson hosted the ceremony and also won two awards: breakthrough performance and best musical moment for her work in “Pitch Perfect.”
Emma Watson received the Trailblazer Award and Jamie Foxx accepted the Generation Award.
Ferrell was the inaugural recipient of the Comedic Genius Award, and he wore a three-piece suit covered in dollar bills to accept the prize.
No word on whether Plaza was waiting in the parking lot.
