1. Sacha Baron Cohen will do anything
He arrived on the red carpet dressed as his new character The Dictator, holding what he explained were the ashes of his "dear friend and doubles tennis partner" Kim Jong Il. "It was his dream to come to the Oscars," said Cohen, before 'accidentally' tipping the ashes all over interviewer Ryan Seacrest's tuxedo. As a security dragged him away, Cohen called out to Seacrest: "When people ask what you're wearing, you can say, 'Kim Jong-Il!'", which pretty much guarantees he'll never be asked to present In Memoriam.
