Awards overload? Another Hollywood show airs on TV

(AP) — Now that the Britannia Awards are televised, viewers can see Sacha Baron Cohen knock an 87-year-old woman out of her wheelchair. Cohen “accidentally” pushed the woman’s wheelchair off a stage as he accepted an award for excellence in comedy during Saturday’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The stunt played perfectly into the newly televised show, which is set to air Sunday on BBC America. The Britannia Awards come just two weeks after the refurbished Hollywood Film Awards drew some of the same celebrities, but there can never be enough Hollywood awards shows. Networks love the star power, stars adore the accolades and fans delight in the spectacle.
