Sacha Baron Cohen was awarded the Charlie Chaplin Britannia for Excellence in Comedy at the Britannia Awards this weekend and in a classy move Miley Cyrus would have envied he killed an old woman in a wheelchair.
In case you can’t watch it right now, his speech was rather epic…
“Grace Cullington is the oldest, no, sorry, was the oldest surviving [Chaplin co-star],” Baron Cohen said following the fall. “I dedicate my award to her. This is obviously a tragedy. She has upstaged me. But on the bright side, what a great way to go, giving an award to me. Thus, she’ll probably make the Oscars In Memoriam segment.”
“I’d like to say a few words to her family: Do not try to sue me. If you decide to get the lawyers involved, I will take you down just like I did your granny. The cane that woman forced on me was clearly defective and I’ve got lots of witnesses. At least 400 in this room and at least 500 watching on TV. Anyway, tonight is not about her, it’s about me.”
SO much better than Miley Cyrus smoking a joint on stage, twerking on a little person and showing some cameltoe.
