Sacha Baron Cohen, star of the Academy Award nominated film Hugo and upcoming film The Dictator, was reportedly banned from the Academy Awards. Cohen suggested that he wanted to appear on the Oscars red carpet in the character of General Aladeen (the role he will be playing in The Dictator). The Awards committee said that he could attend, just not in costume. Although Paramount Pictures stated that he was effectively barred from the Awards ceremony.
