Eminem Storms Out of MTV Movie Awards

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This Eminem returned to the spotlight Sunday, spitting the lyrics of his name-dropping singles "We Made You" and "Crack A Bottle" from his hit album Relapse at the MTV Movie Awards. But not long after his performance, he stormed away from his seat in the auditorium when Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as his flamboyant character BrĂ¼no in angel wings and a barely-visible thong, descended on wires and landed face down in the rapper's lap.


Bodyguards pounced and Eminem's entourage made its exit in what was the most outrageous moment of a night of filled with irreverence. Other examples: host Andy Samberg spoofing box office hits like Slumdog Millionaire (which was nominated six times but came up empty handed) and Star Trek, Amy Poehler accepting the Golden Popcorn trophy for the best "WTF moment" and Forest Whitaker singing an operatic rendition of Samberg's Emmy Award winning song "D- in a Box."

But the night belonged to the film sensation Twilight, which picked up five awards, including the top prize for best movie.

After Shia LaBeouf handed out the best fight award to its stars Robert Pattinson and Cam Gigandet for their tussle in the vampire movie, Pattinson also picked up the award for the best breakthrough performance by a male. Later, he and costar Kristen Stewart teased the crowd by nearly reenacting the kiss between their characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan while accepting the award for best buss.

Stewart also won the prize for best female performance. "I was just about as awkward as you thought I was going to be," the flustered star said at the podium.

Other winners included High School Musical 3: Senior Year's Ashley Tisdale, who won in the female breakthrough performance category while her costar Zac Efron won for best male performance. Jim Carey won for best comedic performance for his role in Yes Man and Heath Ledger was posthumously honored for his legendary performance in The Dark Knight.

The best song from a movie went to Miley Cyrus for "The Climb," which was featured in Hannah Montana: The Movie.

Efron, Kiefer Sutherland and Triumph the Insult Dog presented former MTV Movie Awards host Ben Stiller with the MTV Generation Award, honoring the actor for a career of "selling out box offices without selling out."

So Eminem can make fun of who ever he wants in his songs, but the minute he gets Bruno’s b@lls in face he can’t take it. What a loser.

What happened to Eminem was way different then words of a song. If I went and shoved my package in someones face, I would be arrested an charged with sexual harassment. Probably register as a sexual offender. I was disgusted with what I saw. Not a fan of of Eminem but he needs to file a police report.

There was no surprise on Eminem’s part. It was all planned. From the b@lls to the storming out.
