Sacha Baron Cohen pulls stunt at Academy Awards

The 84th Annual Academy Awards ceremony was a night to remember, especially after comedian Sacha Baron Cohen made an unusual appearance on the Oscar red carpet. Cohen, the star of  the new movie The Dictator, arrived in character as General Aladeen, holding a golden urn that supposedly carried the ashes of late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. Despite having already been warned by the Academy not to pull any stunts or to come dressed as his Dictator character, the star arrived with two female “guards” by his side and a vial of what he later claimed was pancake mix. Cohen pretended to lose control as he was giving an interview to Ryan Seacrest, spilling the ashes on Ryan’s Burberry tuxedo. As he was dragged away by security guards, Cohen uttered, “If somebody asks you what you’re wearing, you say Kim Jong-Il,” as he continued to spill the contents down the red carpet. ~Kayla Thompson

    He’s definitely committed to his roles, i’ll give him respect for that.

    This man is a genius! I wish I could meet Ryan Seacrest so I could dump a dead man’s ashes on his coat.

    Besides, Sacha probably did this to get people talking about his movie and its definitely working. The security guards were all part of his act. I heard they’re the same ones that escorted him from his car.

    I thought comedians were supposed to be funny. He’s a grossly UNfunny idiot who obviously does not know how to dress or act at a formal, high fashion event that means a great deal to a lot of actors who were there to recieve awards for their hard work and great talents. Since he has no respect for the movies others have made, you couldn’t pay me to go and see this pathetic individual star in any movie.
