Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards were full of surprising moments — Seth Rogen’s mane of pubic hair! Quvenzhané Wallis’ purse full of liquor! — but the biggest shock of the evening occurred when Aubrey Plaza pulled a Kanye , interrupting Will Ferrell’s Comedic Genius Award acceptance speech.
The actress took the stage and tried to pry Ferrell’s award out of his hand. Ferrell later told Horowitz that all he smelled was “a lot of hot liquor breath,” though the actress didn’t actually say anything, instead letting her chest do the talking — where she’d written “The To Do List” in marker.
MTV’s All Access cameras were able to chronicle Plaza’s journey from the red carpet to the moment she took the stage.
8:45 p.m. ET: Aubrey Plaza is one of the last celebrities to arrive on the carpet.
8:55 p.m.: Plaza pops into a celebrity holding room and emerges with “#TheToDoList” scrawled across her chest.
9 p.m.: Plaza takes her seat, and the show begins.
10:09 p.m.: Will Ferrell takes the stage to accept his Golden Popcorn for Comedic Genius.
10:10 p.m.: Plaza walks onstage. After trying to steal his award, Ferrell asks if she’s OK. She says “yup” and returns to her seat. She looks fairly horrified as Ferrell announces her to the crowd, but in a gesture of sympathy, he pretends that the bit was planned and went off without a hitch. She seems moderately relieved and smiles uneasily.
