Feb 24, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Sacha Baron Cohen, appearing as his character from the movie “The Dictator,” expressed outrage about the character’s exclusion from the Oscars ceremony, TMZ.com reports.

In a video statement, the character, General Aladeen, warns the Motion Picture Academy of “unimaginable consequences” if it refuses to grant him tickets to the event.

As we reported previously, the Academy is concerned about Cohen’s track record of pulling high-profile stunts and has taken a stance against allowing him to appear in character on the red carpet.

Here’s the video:


  1. Good Job, Sasha (and Paramount?). Getting plenty of traction out this already! Before this week, the movie wasn’t even on my radar…

  2. Still not on my radar. I think it might need serviced. I could aim the missiles visually but nothing beats a radar-assisted weapons lock to make sure it’s a clean kill.
