Sacha Baron Cohen Arrives At The Oscars As ‘The Dictator,’ Dumps ‘Ashes’ On A Very Unhappy Ryan Seacrest
Baron Cohen showed up on the red carpet wearing the tyrannical ruler’s signature, medal-studded uniform, flanked by two ladies in military outfits.
The actor also arrived carrying what will most likely be the most memorable accessory of the evening — a golden urn carrying the “remains” of deceased North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. It had been, you see, his dream to come to the Oscars and be sprinkled onto the red carpet and all over actress Halle Berry.
As it turns out, most of Kim Jong Il ended up on red carpet interviewer Ryan Seacrest. (“I think it’s Bisquik,” Seacrest later told Antonio Banderas.)
