Well, Sacha Baron lived up to his reputation for controversy this morning, and appeared on the red carpet at the Academy Awards as his new character 'The Dictator.'
Originally the comedian was banned from the red carpet this year, but Oscar Bosses soon after back flipped on their earlier decision after he presented them with a hilarious video message dressed in character!
Check out all the red carpet action from the Oscars red carpet!
Today, when 'the Dictator' emerged on the red carpet he chatted for a bit with E! host Ryan Seacrest before unceremoniously tipping an urn of 'ashes' on him, claiming they were from the late Kim Jong Il!
General Aladeen claimed it was Kim Jong's dream to be sprinkled over the red carpet and all over 'Halle Berry's chest again'
Ryan took the incident pretty calmly, but joked "this is how you know we're not taped!"
Co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic couldn't contain their amusement at poor Ryan's misfortune.
Do you think the Oscars bosses will regret their decision to let Sacha Baron Cohen attend this year?
