Watch: Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator' Spills Kim Jong-il's Ashes All Over Ryan Seacrest At The Oscars

Well, the Oscars are over and as usual, the pundits will be spending the day weighing in on the broadcast. On the plus side, it was mostly a fast moving and thankfully not too painful three hour show but the comedy of Billy Crystal definitely showed its age in an era now ruled by the outrageousness of movies like "Bridesmaids." Even the opening montage through the year in movies felt a little creaky. And we're not even going to get started on that Cirque Du Soleil nonsense. But one of the highlight's of the evening took place on the red carpet before the show even began.

The Dictator Oscars

Well, the Oscars are over and as usual, the pundits will be spending the day weighing in on the broadcast. On the plus side, it was mostly a fast moving and thankfully not too painful three hour show but the comedy of Billy Crystal definitely showed its age in an era now ruled by the outrageousness of movies like "Bridesmaids." Even the opening montage through the year in movies felt a little creaky. And we're not even going to get started on that Cirque Du Soleil nonsense. But one of the highlight's of the evening took place on the red carpet before the show even began.

As expected, Sacha Baron Cohen showed up as his character from "The Dictator" and Ryan Seacrest was there to interview him. Cohen was pretty great, completely at ease riffing with the standard red carpet Q&A questions, revealing his date to the Oscars were the ashes of Kim Jong-il and it isn't long before the interview went south. It's a nice little moment, and far more amusing than much of what went on at the formerly titled Kodak Theater (though somebody please put Emma Stone and Robert Downey Jr. in a movie together immediately).

Anyway, if you missed it, watch the whole thing below. "The Dictator" opens on May 11th.
