MTV Movie Awards 2013 “Aubrey Plaza has no balls”-Desi Duran
MTV’s annual Movie Awards aired April 14, 2013 or as Pace freshman Armando Herrera prefers to refer to it, “the day Aubrey Plaza forgot the punchline”. It was clear Aubrey Plaza had lost her voice as she interrupted Will Ferrell as he accepted his Golden Popcorn Comedic Genius award. As she walked onto the stage and attempted to grab the award out of Ferrell’s hands—but Ferrell did not let go of his award; and so she stood there without saying a single word.
It is only natural that one would compare this to Kayne West’s stunt back in 2009 as he told the world that Swift didn’t deserve the award and that the VMA rightly belonged to Beyonce. However, the major difference is Aubrey didn’t say anything. Ferrell commented, “I think she wanted to tell me something important, but there was no message. It was just a lot of hot liquor breath….and a little bit of sweat. And then she ran away” the huge question here is why the silence? What was so important that she was compelled to run on to the stage but then say absolutely nothing?
Pace freshman Desi Duran stated, “Aubrey Plaza has no balls! She clearly wanted the award for herself but was too drunk to format a logical sentence. In my opinion she is a TOTAL idoit”. The drunk comment is not far out of reach, Aubrey walked on stage barefoot, carrying an alcoholic beverage—not to mention she has “#TheToDoList” written across her chest. Pace freshman Amarando Herrea stated, “I think it was a publicity stunt gone terribly wrong. Aubrey Plaza knew she didn’t deserve the award, Will Ferrell has been around for years—she cannot compare. But she had all eyes on her, and she had the floor. She could have made her career and took her comedy to the next level but she did nothing and made a complete fool of herself”. Publicity stunt or not it has been made abundantly clear by MTV officials that the Aubrey’s charade was not in the itinerary for the evening, as she was asked to leave shortly after the stunt.
What did Aubrey have to say for herself? Sticking true to her comedic nature she tweeted, “Thanks for the advice @KanyeWest went better than planned!” on April 15, 2013 at 1:48 am. Aubrey maintained a low profile making no public appearances until the CinemaCon Awards on Thursday April 18, 2013. It was at the CinemaCon Awards were Aubrey received her first award. Duran stated, “I cannot believe she had the audacity to show her face after what happened at the MTV Movie Awards! She deserves an award for going out in public” and it was apparent by Aubrey’s outfit alone at the CinemaCon Awards that her publicist had a lot of damage control to do.
Aubrey wore a conservative burgundy skater dress. The collar of the dress came to the base of her neck—leaving no chest space for “#TheToDoList” on her chest—the selves ending at the elbow, and the hem of her dress hitting right about the knee. “I saw a picture of her outfit in a magazine and thought I was looking at a soccer mom” said Herrera, he continues, “She needs to find the happy median between sloppy drunk mute Aubrey and sober humorous Aubrey because this soccer mom charade is not on the spectrum and has no one fooled.” Aubrey’s fans are not fooled by this damaged control technique and in fact would have more respect for the rising comedian if she simply embraced the MTV Movie Awards incident and continued life per usual.
Aubrey, being a rising comedian, has a lot of opportunities on the horizon. Her stunt at the MTV Movie Awards is just a blemish in the grand scheme of career, “Of course I’m still to see the ‘The To Do List’, it’s going to be hilarious” stated Duran. “The To Do List” is set to release in August of 2013, starting Aubrey Plaza as she play a high school senior who creates a list of multiple sexual activities she must do before she completes high school. The movie follows her journey, filled with embarrassment and undoubtedly awkward situations, as she attempts to check off each item on this list.
While it is unclear if there will be any repercussions for Aubrey’s actions at the MTV Movie Awards, it seems that Aubrey’s embarrassment was punishment enough. Aubrey’s fans are over the entire incident and are eagerly awaiting the release of “The To Do List” this fall.
