Film News: Bruno Crashes Into MTV Movie Awards, Another Alien in the Pipeline

- The MTV Movie Awards were held Sunday night, with sparkly vampire flick Twilight raking in a slew of awards including Best Movie, Best Female Performance (for actress Kristen Stewart), Breakthrough Performance - Male (for actor Robert Pattinson), Best Kiss and Best Fight. High School Musical actors took home two awards: Breakthrough Performance - Female (Ashley Tisdale) and Best Male Performance (Zac Efron). The biggest moment of the night however, was Sacha Baron Cohen (in character as gay fashionista Bruno) dive bombing straight into Eminem's lap while wearing chaps . . . and nothing underneath them. Needless to say, the following clip is NSFW. []

In an interview with Collider website after the junket for his new film The Taking of Pelham 123, Tony Scott named Carl Rinsch as the new director and said that he hopes shooting on the film will begin by the end of the year. And that sound you hear? I'm pretty sure it's Pop Wench Joia railing at the heavens against this news . . . []

  1. it looks like this was staged, though i can't imagine why Eminem would do that to himself

  2. The latest buzz is that MTV producers wanted to drop "Bruno" on Paris Hilton, but she refused. Eminem agreed to be part of the stunt (afterall, he had to be wearing a mic for us to have heard his reaction), but didn't know the important details . . . such as position and lack of pants!
