Sacha Baron Cohen Slams The Oscars ... Live on Today Show, in Character

by at . Comments

In a hilarious minute-long rant, Sacha Baron Cohen went on The Today Show this morning and slammed the Academy Awards for shutting him out... in character.

Cohen, or should we say Admiral General Aladeen, appeared live on NBC's morning show to express outrage over being banned from the Oscars Sunday night.

The despot's message, in summation: Death to America, death to the west, and good luck Billy Crystal. Here's The Dictator himself, General Aladeen, lashing out:

While begrudgingly giving props to the Academy for denying his right to free speech - just like The Dictator himself would do - he's still outraged, dammit!

In addition to threatening the "Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts and Zionists," SBC takes a shot at actress Hilary Swank, who won't refund his money. Bummer.

Swank presumably became a punchline after she attended a dinner for an alleged war criminal. As for why Cohen is railing against the Academy in the first place?

When the group got wind of the fact that he planned to attend the show in character, they blackballed him. Never smart to mess with a dictator, Oscars.
