“Dictator” Might Show Up At the Oscars
Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for his characters Borat and Bruno, wants to attend the Academy Awards as his new character from his upcoming movie, The Dictator.
The Oscars are known for being classy and glamorous; It is the most prestigious award in movies and having Cohen trying to capture attention for himself would definitely damper the ceremony. This is not the first time the actor goes in to an awards show as one of his characters, as he has appeared in full character multiple times at the MTV Video Music Awards. Of course, the MTV awards are known for being irreverent and much more “fun” where these type of actions are not frowned upon, but encouraged.
It will be interesting if the Academy lets Cohen do his little stint and more interesting if we find out this was exactly what The Dictator’s publicist wanted – to get some media attention. Well we are talking about it, right?
