If you haven’t heard, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revoked Sacha Baron Cohen’s invitation to the Oscar ceremony this Sunday. Cohen planned on attending as his character Admiral General Aladeen from his new film The Dictator and the Academy didn’t want any of his antics making their show interesting.
It’s all on your shoulders now Mr Crystal!
Well, Cohen is not taking this sitting down, actually, he is sitting down… In character.
