The Oscar night this Sunday could turn out to be super entertaining if British actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is allowed to attend the event as ‘Aladin’ the character of his upcoming movie, “The Dictator.”
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the producers of the show have not been able to decide as Sacha Baron can easily hog the limelight. Earlier this week there were media reports that he was banned from attending the Oscars. Reacting sharply to these reports Sacha posted a video online expressing his “outrage” over the Academy.
Sensing a potent controversy building up the Organizers seems to have realized that if they stop Sacha from sashaying on the red carpet they would still be not able to stop him from diverting all the media attention from the main event. Therefore on Friday the organizers relented from their staunch position and gave indications in the media that on Sunday night Sacha will attend the gala event.
Responding to this ‘change of heart’ Sacha tweeted, “VICTORY IS OURS! Today the Mighty Nation of Wadiya triumphed over the Zionist snakes of Hollywood…What I am trying to say here is that the Academy have surrendered and sent over two tickets and a parking pass! TODAY OSCAR, TOMORROW OBAMA!”
‘The Dictator’ is scheduled for a May 11, 2012 release.
