(Newser) – Staged or not staged? That seems to be the question surrounding Aubrey Plaza's stage-crashing moment last night at the MTV Movie Awards. The Parks & Rec star came onstage while Will Ferrell was accepting an award, and tried to grab the trophy without actually saying anything. An awkward tug of war followed, until Plaza finally returned to her seat as Ferrell said, "Aubrey Plaza, everyone—just like we rehearsed it." But MTV claims the incident was not staged.

Plaza had a cup in her hand (which she dropped en route back to her seat) and had the name of her upcoming film, The To Do List, written on her chest; many speculated on Twitter and elsewhere that she was drunk at the time. Producers later asked her to leave. Even so, Vulture seems skeptical. "If it wasn't planned, why the heck was she sitting in the front row?" writes Jesse David Fox. "A bit too convenient for something that wasn't rehearsed or planned, no?" And Jezebel notes that it was also "the most exciting thing that happened" during the show. Plaza responded to the controversy today, tweeting, "thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!" in reference to Kanye crashing Taylor Swift's MTV acceptance speech.
