With his plans to dress as ‘the Dictator’ (that’s his new film character for those not paying regular visits to our trailer section) for the event, no surprise to hear that the toffee-nosed stiffs at the Academy may have banned Sacha Baron Cohen from attending this year’s Oscars.

Or have they?

Story goes that Cohen petitioned the Academy to let him dress as ‘General Aladeen’ for the red carpet, The Academy responded, not with a yes or no but with a “say goodbye to your tickets mother f*cker”.

Deadline, who broke that news, had heard from an insider who says, rather amusingly, “Unless they’re assured that nothing entertaining is going to happen on the Red Carpet, the Academy is not admitting Sacha Baron Cohen to the show.”

THR, however, has heard from sources close to the Academy (is that source that guy that makes the mean-ass grilled chicken sandwich thing on top of the Kodak theater shops there? They’re yummy!) who say the actor has not been ‘banned’ they’re simply waiting the actor out.

“We haven’t banned him,” says an Academy spokesperson. “We’re just waiting to hear what he’s going to do.”

Cohen, either way, should be at the event – he’s one of the stars of this year’s nominated films “Hugo”.

And if he really wanted to get the board’s old-man slacks in a twist, Cohen should simply go as Barbra Streisand. I hear they’re pretty fond of her down there.

But if Cohen did turn up as The Dictator, surely he’s not going to be only one on the red carpet in costume!

I mean, besides the fact that a bunch of middle-aged men will be walking around with their hands up the asses of some Muppets, Nicole Kidman’s going to be there pretending to be some valid -someone whose career hasn’t shriveled and died, British composer Reginald Kenneth Dwight will be there under the guise of someone named ‘Elton John’, and Robin Williams will be there, complete with the twenty-five different personalities he carries around in his noggin’ each and every day. If the genie from fucking “Aladdin” can attend, why can’t a fake dictator? Might give the event some spice!
