After much staged back and forth, the Academy finally decided to allow Sacha Baron Cohen to show up dressed like that guy from Chromeo. Or, I guess he was actually in costume as his character from The Dictator. He naturally showed up in style with gorgeous women on his arm and a good friend in his hands... the ashes of deceased leader Kim Jong Il.
While discussing the evening with Ryan Seacrest, Baron Cohen's Dictator took the opportunity to dump the ashes all over Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest was visibly angry about the incident but should just relax. It could have gone a lot worse. As evidenced by these seven Sacha Baron Cohen stunts.

Eminem at VMAs

Sacha Baron Cohen is no stranger to commandeering awards shows for his public pranks. While promoting Bruno at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, Cohen soared high above the crowd wearing angel wings and a thong. When his high-wire harness malfunctioned, he fell into the audience. Upside down, his balls landed directly on Slim Shady's chin. The angry rapper pushed the comedian off of him and stormed out of the ampitheatre.

It was revealed to be a stunt devised with Eminem's full participation after Baron Cohen wasn't later found in the trunk of a car at the bottom of Lake Michigan.

Bruno Interviews Ron Paul

In disguise as the flamboyant television host Bruno, Baron Cohen sat down for an interview with then Presidential candidate Ron Paul. Rather than discussing Paul's economic ideas, Bruno tries to seduce the Gentleman from Texas into making a sex tape with him. Even going so far as to drop trou in front of him. Paul storms out of the room shouting, "This guy is a queer!" At first Paul thought he was just acting European.

Borat Arrives at the Toronto Film Festival

Borat made a surprise entrance at the Toronto Film Festival in 2006 by having his gang of wenches pull him in on a wooden cart. Wow. You can really get Canadian actresses to do just about anything.

Latoya Jackson

Ultimately cut from the film's theatrical release, Bruno invited Latoya Jackson over for an interview. While there, he hilariously had her sit on "chairs." In this case, they were Mexican workers he'd hired to act as his furniture. The interview ended as so many with Latoya often do, with her fleeing the room and running to a waiting car. The impetus for this was Bruno's underhanded method of obtaining her then alive and famously-reclusive brother Michael's private phone number. After his death, the studio saw fit to cut the scene from the film. But it is available on the DVD and it's worth watching.

Borat On the Campaign Trail

If I were a Republican on the campaign trail, the last person I'd want to bring along was a television reporter from a tiny nation in a smelly suit. But that's just was James Broadwater did when he went door to door to visit his constituents. The results? Borat forced his way into people's homes so that he could "make sh*t" in their toilets, leaving Broadwater and the homeowner awkwardly standing on the front porch.

Ali G vs Andy Rooney

As he's stressed time and time again via his rants and reviews about can openers that take too much effort, serious journalist Andy Rooney was a man that valued his time. That's why it's no wonder he storms out on this hilarious interview with Ali G when he doesn't take well to Ali's perception of the media.

Borat Sings Throw The Jew Down a Well

The number one rule for any performer to keep in mind is that you have to know your audience. That's why Baron Cohen's Kazahkstani Borat chose the South to try out a new song he'd be working on. What came across as most shocking, however, wasn't the content of "Throw a Jew Down a Well" but how into it the bar full of Southerners seemed.

This definitely wouldn't be the ideal place for the actually Jewish Baron Cohen to lift the veil on his ruse.
