Of course it was staged.
While there has been much speculation on whether or not Bruno falling ass-first into Eminem was an accident – as the MC seemed to make it out to be – Scott Aukerman, the head writer for the MTV Movie Awards has cleared it all up on his blog.
“Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so let’s get it out of the way. They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then.”
So, as “Twilight” went on to win five awards, an absolutely wonderful video of Sacha Baron Cohen as his character and future movie star, Bruno, stole the show.
It is understood that this “mistake” featuring Bruno performing an assplant on Eminem’s face was unscripted. However, we want to thank Aukerman for clearing that up.
