“The Boss” star Melissa McCarthy received the Comedic Genius award at the MTV Movie Awards, but she didn’t walk to the stage like everybody else did. Instead, she got a bit of help.
“The guy in the headphones took the stairs! Somebody’s gotta get me to the stage!” McCarthy shouted, before a group of men carried her through the crowd from the platform she’d been standing on.
After going down a list of other female comedians in her thank-you speech, she mentioned her mom, for teaching her to “lovingly go for the kill.” But she wasn’t done.
“Just one more thing, just a little P.S.,” McCarthy said. “Who knew Bruce Springsteen could get even cooler? How about that?”
Springsteen canceled a planned Sunday concert in North Carolina, citing the state’s recent passage of legislation widely criticized as anti-LGBT.
