Sacha Baron Cohen always has something up his sleeve. This year, the comic actor spilled it all over Ryan Seacrest’s sleeves — and the red carpet, too.
Parodying the Moammar Gadhafi-type dictator he plays in his upcoming film, "The Dictator," Baron Cohen showed up carrying what he said were the ashes of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. Then he spilled them all over the E! host’s tuxedo.
Said Seacrest: "Anything can happen and it most certainly did, all over my lapel."
A CIRCUS IN THE HOUSE
Wait, was that Spider-Man flying up to the rafters? No, this wasn’t the Tonys, it was the Oscars, and those were Cirque du Soleil aerialists in a lavish tribute to the movies. Crystal noted the circus-like atmosphere when he quipped: "We’ve got puppets, acrobats ... we’re a pony away from a bar mitzvah!"
Jennifer Lopez doesn’t shy away from sexy gowns — remember the famously skin-baring Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammys? Well, this time, some viewers speculated on Twitter and elsewhere that a bit too much breast was visible in her Oscar gown with a plunging V-neck by Zuhair Murad. Her stylist hastened to report that it was an optical illusion. "While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, (the) joke’s on everyone who wishes they saw something!" Mariel Haenn said in a statement.
