During the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) Britannia Awards in Los Angeles this Saturday, Sacha Baron Cohen appeared to shove an 87 year old wheelchair-bound actress off of the stage. Whoops!

The accident occurred right after the "oldest living actress to appear in a silent movie with Charlie Chaplin" presented Cohen with the Charlie Chaplin Award for Excellence in Comedy.

After the actress goes flying into the front row, the audiences gasps and clutches at their collective pearls. 

Before, this story drives you into too much of a tizzy, rest-assured, it was a prank. The woman in the wheelchair was a professional stuntwoman--not a fragile old lady.
