anytime the phrase "warm black dingus" is used in a serious dramatic movie it should automatically win best screenplay

Sacha Baron Cohen has revealed his appearance as Ali G at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony was in defiance of the Academy’s request for him not to appear in character.

“The Oscars sat me down beforehand and said they didn’t want me to do anything out of order, they wanted me to actually just present it as myself,” Baron Cohen said in an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain programme. “But luckily my wife put on the Ali G beard in the disabled toilets and I managed to get away with it.”

Baron Cohen’s wife, the actor Isla Fisher, added that they shut themselves in the bathroom for 40 minutes applying the goatee, fending off inquiries by claiming he had food poisoning. Baron Cohen said he had been concerned about the response to his appearance, “but I bumped into Chris Rock on the way on and pitched him the gig and he gave me the thumbs up, so I went for it”.


Baron Cohen won acclaim for his stint on stage, in which Ali G poked fun at the diversity debate by calling himself “just another token black presenter” and describing the kidnap thriller Room as “a movie about a roomful of white people”.

Also I completely forgot about this:

At the 2012 Oscars, Baron Cohen appeared on the red carpet as his character from The Dictator and emptied an urn of what he said were Kim Jong-Il’s ashes over the television presenter Ryan Seacrest. This year Seacrest refused to speak to him.

I was happy when Ali G showed up. Isla is awesome for supporting him and helping him.

The next day my Asian friends were heated though and posted on facebook about what he said was racist to Asians.
