Academy Awards Fashion Face-Off: George Clooney vs. Saddam Hussein

by at . Comments

George Clooney was shut out at the Academy Awards last night, as he lost to Jeff Bridges for Best Actor and Up in the Air was defeated by The Hurt Locker in the Best Picture category.

But it's been an even worse run lately for Saddam Hussein. The former dictator of Iraq was ousted from power in April 2003 and killed by his former country in December 2006.

Still, somehow, Saddam showed up at the Oscars and... sorry. We're being told the gentleman posing alongside Clooney below is actually actor Antonio Banderas, not Saddam Hussein.

Our mistake.
