Filed under: TV NewsAwardzSacha Baron Cohen

Whoawhoawewa! This is the most shocking Awards show moments that's happened since…well, Miley Cyrus smoked a blunt onstage yesterday at the EMAs.

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)!!!

Nelson Mandela is currently being treated for a lung infection, which is basically pneumonia.

South African officials said that Mandela's infection is "recurring."

He is 94-years-old and at that age, it's very easy for fluid to build up in the lungs.

The cough response is decreased in the elderly, making it easy to breathe in some saliva and just have it sit in your lungs, growing bacteria.

A new study found that elderly people who eat a carb heavy diet are almost four times as likely to develop mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

Not everyone that has MCI develops Alzheimer's but many do.

5.2 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's so researchers are doing what they can to find ways to stop MCI before it happens.

The study's lead author said:
