After much controversy, Sacha Baron Cohen, showed up to the Oscars as promised — dressed in character from his upcoming comedy The Dictator.
Since all of the talk was before the Oscars and Sacha hopes to remain relevant after the Oscars he managed to create a stir when he dumped an urn of ashes over E! host, Ryan Seacrest, in the middle of the Oscars red-carpet telecast.
The incident began when Cohen, clutching the container, told Seacrest he was carrying late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il’s ashes in his hands. He stated,
“It was his dream to come to the Oscars and to be sprinkled on the red carpet and over Halle Berry’s chest again,”
And then he “accidentally” dumped its contents onto Seacrest’s tuxedo. Always the jokester, Cohen said,
“If somebody ask you what you are wearing, you will say Kim Jong-il!”
He was then escorted away by some beefy security guards.
Seacrest told Cohen to “have fun this evening,” before chatting with cohosts Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne. Ranciccalled Seacrest “lucky” to be part of a moment that would certainly blow up Twitter. Osbourne, meanwhile, told Seacrest it was “the most priceless moment on TV that I’ve shared with you ever.”
“Do you think that I’m lucky? Is this a vision of luck?” Seacrest asked, laughing, before cutting to break.
I’m not sure lucky is the word, I would use. What do you think??
