MTV Movie Awards

Maybe I'm getting a little old to be watching the MTV Movie Awards. The lame categories, the tween screaming for Robert Pattinson, the Disney kids wearing revealing clothing, Hayden Panetierre's not geared towards my age group anymore (and hasn't been for a good while), so why am I still watching?

I'll tell you why. Because where else can I see Sascha Baron Cohen in character as Bruno, dressed in a white angel costume with a bare butt, soaring above the crowd on a wire harness, only to fall into Eminem's lap, conveniently landing with his butt placed in Eminem's face.

Thanks MTV. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. I don't care if it was scripted or not. That was freaking funny. I had to rewind it to hear what Eminem was saying because I was laughing over the dialogue.

You can read more about it at Best Week Ever.

They also showed a new preview of New Moon. Edward brooding! Jacob shirtless! Squee!

The New Moon trailer looks awesome. Jacob wolfing out looks a lot cooler than I thought it would.

I have such mixed feelings about Sascha Baron Cohen. Sometimes he makes me laugh, sometimes he just makes me very, very uncomfortable. Perhaps that's the point of his brand of comedy. But...I don't like being uncomfortable. It's so uncomfortable.

I get what you mean about the uncomfortable factor. The Office is a mild form of that uncomfortable humor for me. But just look at it in this context...Eminem can dish it out all day long, making fun of others and making millions of $, but he definitely can't take it. Which is why I vote Bruno upside-down straddling his face as a giant WIN!

I gotta say the trailer looks WAY better than the lame book...I hate admitting it, but I can't wait to see that movie!

Oh my gosh! I am posting a similar picture tomorrow. Without the entire ass shot.

Sometimes karma smacks you in the face with Sascha Baron Cohen's ass.

I like Mr. Cohen's brain 'cos he's completely lost his mind just to make us all laugh for a moment. He's very hairy and had to pretty much shave his whole body to play Bruno. Nice butt! ;)

I tell ya', he sure is brave to pull stunts on people in the manner he does. Eminem was in on it, but I think he's going to get beat up one day. He'd better be careful, he's a daddy now.

I think I'm going to have this embroidered on a pillow. Words to live by.

I really can't stand Sascha Baron Cohen. I don't find him funny. I find him irritating. For me it's not about being uncomfortable. It's about the fact that I do not find his "comedy" to be funny at all.

(But I did love your quote about karma and Cohen's ass. :-) )

And I have to say that they did managed to make New Moon look like a potentially decent movie. I just added the first one to my netflix queue so that I can make fun of it, but I wonder how they'll do with a new director.
