Sacha Baron Cohen makes this year's BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards the most memorable yet with the staged death of Grace Collington.
The 'Borat' comedian just can't take a day off, can he? The award-giving for Excellence in Comedy started out so nicely with 'Savages' actress Salma Hayek giving a speech about how brilliantly authentic a comedian and actor Sacha is. "Sacha has consistently demonstrated total fearlessness as an artist", she told the audience. "He has literally risked his life to make us laugh." However, while the star filled audience wiped away their tears, Sacha was concocting a dastardly plan to totally ruin the moment.

Months later, when she is no longer blind and working in a successful flower shop, the Tramp has been released and is still, well, a tramp. They accidentally meet. The Girl naturally expects her hero to be tall, rich, and handsome. When she sees short, poor, and dirty, the disappointment in her benefactor is palpable.
