(Newser) – MTV added new category Best WTF Moment to this year’s Movie Awards, but the real WTF moment came courtesy of prankster Sacha Baron Cohen, the New York Daily News reports. Cohen—dressed as gay fashionista Bruno—descended from the ceiling in a jockstrap and angel wings, landing butt-first on a less-than-amused Eminem. The rapper, whose expletive-laden response was bleeped by the live show's censors, angrily stormed out of the theater.

“That was really weird,” said Zac Efron afterward—but was the whole thing staged? “He was pretty mad,” said an eyewitness of Eminem. “He practically walked into a camera. He couldn’t leave fast enough.”
