Last night, I watched more Oscar red carpet coverage than I ever have in my life because I made the grave error of showing up to a party two-and-a-half hours early. We watched far too much of E!’s pre-show coverage and when we felt our brains trying to escape like a passenger on a sinking ship, we switched over to ABC’s red-carpet coverage. Naturally, that’s when something interesting happened on E!. The Twitterdome exploded by saying that Sacha Baron Cohen‘s character from The Dictator, Admiral General Aladeen (who was “banned” and then “unbanned” from the Oscars), had spilled Kim Jong-il‘s ashes on Ryan Seacrest. We scoured the Internet for video because of course E! wasn’t going to replay the night’s best moment. We couldn’t find the video online because the Internet chose to let us down. Thanks, Internet.
Thankfully, the video has finally gone online and you can check out staged antics after the jump. The Dictator opens May 11th.
