Sacha Baron Cohen dictates film's big night

Monday February 27, 2012

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen shook up the Academy Awards in character as The Dictator.

Arriving at the Hollywood and Highland centre, the comic was on white hot form - although his extravagant military uniform clashed with the couture gowns.

Flanked by two khaki-clad assistants, Sacha brandished an urn which he claimed contained the ashes of late North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Il.

He then emptied the contents over stunned American television presenter, Ryan Seacreast.
