Sacha Baron Cohen‘s “General Aladeen” dictator character made his debut at the Academy Awards Sunday, and didn’t disappoint.
While being interviewed Ryan Seacrest, Cohen —dressed in a military uniform — revaled that the green urn with an image of Kim Jong II on its exterior, contained the late North Korean leader’s ashes. Ryan later said the mystery substance was actually the pancake mix Bisquick!
Cohen then started fumbling with the urn and poured its contents all over a seemingly-shocked Ryan. Cohen was then escorted away by security, but continued down the red carpet.
Tom Cruise will be a presenter at this month’s Academy Awards, producers of the show announced today. Fun!
Oddly enough, he’s never won an Oscar himself!
It’s official! Jennifer Lopez will be a presenter at the Academy Awards on February 26.
The award ceremony’s producers, Brian Grazer and Don Mischer announced the gig today.
Last month J-Lo bowed out of presenting at the Golden Globes, after the Academy reportedly sent an email out to stars saying that if you present at the Golden Globes, don’t count on presenting at the Oscars. At the time, a spokesperson for the Oscars said, “The academy has always placed a premium on exclusivity, but, ultimately, each individual makes his or her own decisions.”
More importantly, will she bring boyfriend Casper Smart?
