Will Ferrell Accepts MTV Movie Awards Comedic Genius Prize, Wards Off Aubrey Plaza (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Will Ferrell accepted the first-ever Comedic Genius Award at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, and his speech was just as bombastic as we've come to expect from the "Anchorman" star.

Near the beginning of Ferrell's speech, he appeared to be thrown off by an unexpected interruption from Aubrey Plaza, who was later thrown out of the ceremony, according to MTV. But he regained his composure quickly and continued with his speech, thanking his fans, and challenging anyone who doesn't think he's funny to a fight in the parking lot with Ferrell and his "Elf" co-star Peter Dinklage.

He then brought up his "family," a middle-aged Asian woman and three Asian children.

"I want to thank my beautiful wife Pam, our two daughters Elizabeth and Tami, and our son, Chow Yun-fat," Ferrell said. In real life, the comedian is married to Swedish actress Viveca Paulin.

Check out the clip above to see Ferrell accept his award.
