So, funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen just bombed another award show. This time he “accidentally” pushed a wheelchair-bound old woman off stage for the glammed-up celebrity audience at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards on Saturday. Ouch!
The second Baron Cohen strutted on stage, it was clear that the episode would not end well. After being presented with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy by Salma Hayek, a mysterious woman named Grace Cullington, supposedly the only living actor from Chaplin’s silent films, presents Baron Cohen with one of Chaplin’s canes. After doing a terrible Chaplin impersonation, the cane collapses and Baron Cohen crashes into sweet old Cullington, wheeling her off stage, to the horror and screams of award show guests.
