Sacha Baron Cohen Leaves Britannia Award Goers Shocked After 'Killing' Veteran Actress Grace Collington


Sacha Baron Cohen Salma Hayek Charlie Chaplin

Sacha Baron Cohen shocks once again by apparently killing 87-year-old actress Grace Collington as he rolls her wheelchair off the stage during his acceptance of the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award.

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.

On meeting Grace Collington, who appeared in Charlie Chaplin's 'City Lights' in 1931 at the age of 5 and is the oldest living actress to have worked with the star, he accepted the gift of Chaplin's actual cane from the movie and proceeded to test it out with a little tap dance. The spectators' expressions turned from delighted amusement to utter shock in seconds when Sasha proceeded to accidentally push Grace's wheelchair off the stage, apparently leaving her landing flat on her face on the floor motionless.

Charlie: The Life And Art Of Charles Chaplin Review


Excellent
One of the most inspiring moments in the films of Charlie Chaplin is the ending of City Lights. Released in 1931, Chaplin was by this time well beyond fame and fortune as a dominating force in Hollywood and assured of superhero status -- a living, breathing icon -- not just as the Tramp, but also as writer, director, producer, composer, and the most famous human being in the world. Now, daring to make a silent film in the sound era, City Lights would take him even higher.

It's the story of how the Tramp befriends a poor blind woman, the Girl, and, as he leads her to believe he's a well-off man about town, he entangles himself in a series of intricately choreographed escapades that can only be called Chaplinesque. Through it all he manages to steal enough money for the operation to cure her, and when arrested, proudly goes off to jail. The Girl knows nothing of this, of course. 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.
