Sacha Baron Cohen’s Oscar stunt gives Ryan Seacrest a powder – video

by | 27th, February 2012

SACHA Baron Cohen was first banned from promoting his new film, The Dictator, on the Oscars red carpet then allowed to. Arch self-publicist Baron Cohen celebrated on Twitter:

VICTORY IS OURS! Today the Mighty Nation of Wadiya triumphed over the Zionist snakes of Hollywood. Evil and all those who made Satan their protector were vanquished and driven into the Pacific Sea. What I am trying to say here is that the Academy have surrendered and sent over two tickets and a parking pass! TODAY OSCAR, TOMORROW OBAMA!

Oddly, others didn’t take up the challenge and arrive in character. Meryl streep did not arrive with her starched hair poking from the top of a tank… Jean Dujardin was not followed by an orchestra.

Sacha Baron Cohen would alone give the film industry’s big AGM a spinkling of entertainment. And that sprinkle was Kim Jong-il’s ashes, which he sprinkled over toothy TV host Ryan Seacrest.  SBC said it had been  Kim’s dying wish “to be sprinkled over the red carpet and over Halle Berry’s chest again”.
Seacrest’s obvious displeasure and inability to think on his feet helped to make it funny:

SBC was then escorted off the red carpet:
