Sacha Baron Cohen nearly terrified half the crowd at BAFTA-LA's Britannia Awards on Saturday night when he pushed an elderly woman in a wheelchair off the stage while accepting the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award For Excellence In Comedy.
The woman in question was identified as Grace Collington, the oldest surviving actor to have worked with Charlie Chaplin in a silent movie, 1931's City Lights, even though no such person is listed in the movie's IMDB credits.
Thankfully, for all parties concerned, but mostly the woman in the wheelchair pushed headfirst off a stage, the stunt was just a prank.
Ch-ch-check out the scary Awards show prank (above)!!!
