Miley Cyrus vs. Sacha Baron Cohen in Awards acceptance shockers

You may have heard about one memorable moment in awards news last weekend when Miley Cyrus lit a supposed joint on stage at the European Music Awards while accepting an award. Ha ha ha, whatever Miley Cyrus. You need to be more original, like Sacha Baron Cohen, who also won an award in this weekend and did something shocking while accepting it.

At the BAFTA-LA gala on Saturday, Sacha Baron Cohen won the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. He was on stage with an old woman in a wheelchair who was supposedly Grace Collington, the last living actor who worked with Chaplin. She gave him a cane, he dances around the stage and then knocks her wheelchair off the stage and kills her.


Even though I would have known something outlandish was going to happen, I still would have been had by this prank if I was in the audience. The woman in the wheelchair was a stunt woman and this Grace lady is presumably still alive somewhere.

And then, in true Cohen fashion, Sacha still gave a speech. According to the LA Times Cohen said, “What a great way to go,” and then warned her relatives “Try and sue! She’s dead. Get over it.”

Rebel lighting of a joint vs. murder. No contest. Go cry yourself to sleep Cyrus.
