Although audiences have seen comedian and actor Sacha Baron Cohen take on supporting roles in dramas (Inspector Gustav in "Hugo" and Thénardier in the upcoming "Les Miserables"), most will forever remember him as Bruno, Ali G and Borat in his hilarious character sketch comedy, "Da Ali G Show."

Ali G made a triumphant return to television at the British Comedy Awards two nights ago, where Ben Kingsley honored Cohen with an outstanding achievement award. Ali G, who hasn't been on TV for 10 years, said he's all "grown up now."
