Kathy Griffin: Eminem's tantrum was a 'stunt' at MTV Movie Awards

June 1, 2009 |  2:16 pm

Eminem MTV Movie Awards Sacha Baron Cohen 719385206 news

"It was a stunt!" That's what Kathy Griffin suspects of Eminem stomping out of the MTV Movie Awards after getting ambushed by Sacha Baron Cohen as the effusively gay blade Bruno. The result: The rapper ended up with Cohen's bare butt in his face, shrieked "Are you serious? Get the … off me!" and dashed out.

She doesn't really know for sure, but Kathy believes the whole thing was a send-up because of one element that may be a telltale clue. The awards-show veteran gives Gold Derby readers an insider's perspective.

Pardon the production snafu early on in this video as the camera is tilted too high, cutting off the bottom half of Kathy's face as we yap. That gets fixed halfway through. Kathy's assistant Tiffany was doing an admirable job holding the webcam in hand while standing off to one side, but perspective got slightly askew for a brief time.

Check out the rest of this video here at Gold Derby on Tuesday as we dish Kathy's run for Emmy No. 3! (It's almost totally free of tech glitches!)

I watched that moment and thought it was so gross and I thought it was a prank. I don't think either one of them is that good of an actor. Very stupid if it was planned of real.

My daughter was born on the day MTV aired 08/01/1981 and believe me it use to be so entertaining and now it is just plain dumb.

I would have her in the playpin and she would stand up and dance to the videos. She loved Michael Jackson. She was young too. She also watched Sesame Street so don't get your panies in a crack.

I am not a real fan of either one of them so I guess it doesn't matter what I think.

Would you put your genitals right up against the teeth and fists of someone you thought might get pissed off and go postal?

Prearranged stunt.

Will the editors of the LA Times "The Envelope" PLLLLEEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE change the photos in the ads in the top right of this page for
Dish Rag, Pop & Hiss, Notes on a Season, and The Feinberg Files. I am sick to death of seeing Debra Messing's face. C'mon people, these photos have been here for months!!!!!! Give us a break.

I thought it was in horrible judgment to do that stunt. It wasn't funny at all!

Who really cares what kathy griffin thinks about anything?

MTV blows. It tries to make you think that what you are watching is what all the cool kids do, watch, listen to, etc. *Shudders* and there are many gullible people who were fooled by Eminems poor acting job during the incident - go watch a deacent movie please

Aahahahaha to all those who insulted me and everyone else who believed that this was staged. Mmmmmmm.... victory smells delicious. If you belived in Eminems acting job on the incident (which many of you did), you can't tell good acting worth sh*t. And there are some people who are still in denial - who think Eminem would never do such a thing! If you are such a big fan you would know that Eminem is completely capable of making an a** out of himself as he acts like a goofball in his videos - and off the set sometimes. Your so freaking retarded and gullible.

If you watch MTV for mindless entertainment in terms of reality shows, then you're ok in my book. But if you watch MTV to gain perspective on pop culture and what good music is, what good movies are good, etc. Go kill yourself, you degrade our society and you are the reason people hate this country.

Your so freaking retarded and gullible. I love it.

it was funny,this is showbusiness

I think that Eminem knew he would land in his lap, but not upside down. That part came as a total shock and outrage to him, and the anger and walkout was real. I would suspect that Baron did it that way without telling MTV, thus the reason the channel wouldnt tell Eminem ahead of time to expect a cheek to cheek close encounter (and thus spoil the classic reaction shot that will haunt Eminem forever). It was a great subversive gag. Many people dont get it, but many people didnt get Andy Kaufman either.

Are you serious? This could possibly of been a stunt? I tell you, those of us in fly over country would of never thought it so. Seriously. The likelyhood of it being a set up was quite odvious (I hope) to most folks. Not very original or funny given the players though duly vulgar given the venue.

I guess eminem got a bum rap!

MTV is not relevant anymore, I don't understand why people watch this crap still. Mostly moronic teenagers.

stunt or not a stunt that eminem was in on . . . It only matters if it was funny. It was not funny.

Just really stupid.

Joke is really on MTV. Correction the joke IS MTV.
