Sacha Baron Cohen

We're just now gearing up for awards season (be sure to read all the editorials from our own Joey Magidson), but the folks at BAFTA just held the Britannia Awards, and they honored Borat and Bruno star Sacha Baron Cohen with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. At the ceremony, Cohen was presented the award by actress Salma Hayek along with Grace Cullington, an 87-year-old wheelchair bound woman who once play a little girl in Chaplin's 1931 film City Lights, making her the only surviving co-star of the iconic screen star's films. However, an honor quickly became a tragedy.

Here's Sacha Baron Cohen's acceptance speech gone wrong from BBC America (via IndieWire):

Okay, in case you haven't guessed by now, this is just another fantastic stunt by Cohen, always ready to make a scene. But that moment where Cohen imitates the Chaplin walk after being given Chaplin's cane and accidentally kills Ms. Cullington is downright hilarious. This just proves why Cohen got the award in question. The actor has always been one for live pranks, whether its falling nearly naked on Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards or spilling the ashes of Kim Jong Il on Ryan Seacrest. Next year you can see Cohen's original antics brought back to TV with "Ali G: Rezurection," airing on FXX beginning in February of 2014.

That wasn't even funny, it was dark and down right sickening. To think humanity has resorted to laughing at a cruel joke involving the death of a senior.

Dude, relax. The audience eventually got that it was joke, that's why they were laughing.

I dunno, I got a good snort and giggle out of it. Nothing wrong with beating the elderly about for a laugh if they're up for it, Look at Ronald Reagan! (is he dead yet or still wandering around Palm Springs in his soiled boxers?)

i have always loved Sacha's brand of humor. he is like me push the envelope as much as possible. he really puts himself out there and doesnt play it safe at all. i cant wait for the new Ali G show to come. i fell in love with him so long ago when i was visiting family in england and saw the Ali G show for the first time.
