Sacha Baron Cohen As ‘The Dictator’ Dumps Ashes On Ryan Seacrest
In what will undoubtedly be the most talked about moment from tonight’s Oscar red carpet, Sacha Baron Cohen arrived in character as “The Dicator” and dumped an oversize urn’s worth of ashes all over Ryan Seacrest.
Baron told Seacrest he was wearing a John Galliano suit — terrible joke — and Kmart socks before upturning the ashes of his dear friend and “doubles tennis partner” Kim Jong-Il all over the red carpet host. Seacrest, suffice it to say, was not pleased. Security quickly escorted Baron Cohen off the carpet while Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne chuckled off-screen.
