On Friday, Sacha Baron Cohen's new character Admiral General Aladeen, from The Dictator, released a video warning the Academy would face "unimaginable consequences" if they didn't give him his Oscars tickets back.
The Academy had apparently snubbed the comedian for fear of Cohen causing a bit of (much needed) controversy on the red carpet. Luckily for us Aladeen got his tickets back and appeared on the night accompanied by his "good friend" Kim Jong Il in an urn.
As he made his way down the red carpet he was interviewed by Pop Idol presenter Ryan Seacrest. Cohen then proceeded to tip the "ashes" onto Seacrest's jacket. Despite the fact it looked suspiciously like talcum powder, Seacrest looked very unimpressed.
