Will Ferrell vs. Aubrey Plaza: MTV Movie Awards 2013

Will Ferrell Aubrey Plaza MTV Movie Awards 2013Will Ferrell vs. Aubrey Plaza: MTV Movie Awards 2013

[See previous post: "MTV Movie Awards 2013 Winners: From Tom Hiddleston to Taylor Lautner."] Now, the highlight of the MTV Movie Awards 2013 ceremony wasn't a speech, an expletive, or Taylor Lautner's fat suit. Instead, that (somewhat dubious) honor goes to Safety Not Guaranteed and Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza, who tried to seize Will Ferrell's Comedic Genius Golden Popcorn onstage.

Now, if online reports are to be believed, that Will Ferrell vs. Aubrey Plaza match was unscripted. Plaza, with the name of her upcoming film The To Do List scribbled on her chest, was reportedly inebriated – and perhaps got hungry and felt the urge to eat popcorn? Or perhaps she was inspired by William A. Wellman's A Star Is Born, in which a drunken Fredric March accidentally slaps Best Actress Oscar winner Janet Gaynor onstage. But if so, why didn't Plaza slap Will Ferrell? Who the hell knows?

According to MTV, following the Ferrell Popcorn to-do, Aubrey Plaza was asked to leave the theater. Too bad, they should have made her the show's hostess. At least Plaza was one individual at the MTV Movie Awards 2013 who had no qualms about letting everybody know exactly why she attended the ceremony. (Scroll down for a video of the Will Ferrell / Aubrey Plaza popcorn-wrestling match.)

Twilight fans vs. MTV Movie Awards 2013

Apart from Aubrey Plaza stealing the spotlight from Will Ferrell, the most interesting thing about the MTV Movie Awards 2013 were Twilight fans stealing the spotlight from the MTV Movie Awards themselves. Twifans were mad as hell because this year MTV didn't give them a chance to vote for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Robert Pattinson, and Kristen Stewart – especially in the Best Kiss category. Throughout the ceremony, the hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night was a Twitter trending topic, oftentimes above #mtvmovieawards. And when Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were announced as the Best Kiss winners, #RobstenIsTheBestKiss became a top trending topic as well.
