In a move that would surely VMA-ify the Oscars, Sacha Baron Cohen is reportedly hoping to attend the show as The Dictator’s titular character, a likely prejudiced, certainly ridiculous fellow who — and this is totally incidental — loves attention. “The question is whether the Academy will veto Cohen’s attempt to add a touch of crass spectacle to the regal affair,” writes the Hollywood Reporter. The question is clearly not whether the decision will affect the film’s publicity campaign. Mission already accomplished, Sacha. We thought about The Dictator again. Good work, bro.
