Leading up to this evenings Oscar festivities, there was much speculation as to what stunt Sacha Baron Cohen would pull on the red carpet.

Earlier this week, Cohen and his people sent the Academy a proposal asking if he could storm the red carpet as his character from the upcoming The Dictator. Fearful that their big event would be hijacked by the Borat comedian, the Academy threatened to pull Cohen's invite.

Cooler heads prevailed, and Cohen was asked back to the Oscars, after all, he is one of the stars of Hugo, a multi-nominee.

However, always one to push the envelope, Sacha Baron Cohen broke the rules by showing up in character and offered up perhaps the most memorable moment of the night. While he was being interviewed by E!'s Ryan Seacrest, Cohen's Dictator persona took the opportunity to spill an entire urn of "ashes" all over the dapper host.

Seacrest was visibly peeved that his crisp Burberry tux was now covered in soot. Security promptly escorted Cohen away as he was crying out that he has spilled the body of the late Kim Jong Il.
