The Stranger Things star announced on Instagram on Friday that she'll be unable to attend Saturday's MTV Movie & TV Awards after splitting her kneecap. While Brown seemed to be recovering well -- even referring to the injury as a new "milestone" -- she was bummed not to be able to attend the event with her Stranger Things co-stars.
"I've never actually broken a bone except for now. I have split my kneecap, so from the doctor's orders, he told me to rest up and that means that I won't be attending the MTV Awards this weekend," Brown explained in a video showing off her leg brace and crutches.
"I hope Gaten [Matarazzo] and Caleb [McLaughlin], Finn [Wolfhard], Sadie [Sink], and Noah [Schnapp] have the best time and I love them so dearly. So I wish you guys the best and I'm sending my luck with you, and I'll be there in spirit," she added.
Brown is nominated for both Best Performance in a Show and Best Kiss with Wolfhard at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, which take place on Saturday but airs on Monday. Stranger Things landed seven nominations total.
