So what better way for Sacha Baron Cohen to deliver his response to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences dressed as the very character he was banned from bringing to Sunday's event.
The comedian today broadcast a video message to the Academy warning them to give him his tickets back 'or face unimaginable consequences'.
'While I applaud the academy for taking away my right to free speech, I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12pm on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences.'
General Aladeen then continues to blast the Academy for not nominating any 'classic Wadiyan films such as When Harry Kidnapped Sally, You've Got Mailbomb or Planet Of The Rapes'.
The actor had planned to walk the red carpet at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles this Sunday night as his The Dictator character General Aladeen before changing into a normal tuxedo for the rest of the ceremony.
The Dictator is Cohen's fourth film and tells the 'heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.'
A spokesperson for the Academy told Deadline.com: 'We would hope that every studio knows that this is a bad idea. The Red Carpet is not about stunting.'
They also told The Hollywood Reporter that he is not welcome in character and added: 'We have not banned him. We’re just waiting to hear what he’s going to do.'
In theory, the actor's intention to dress as a diabolical Middle Eastern leader who is not afraid to kill his countrymen and women will not be allowed into the Academy Awards if he shows up looking like that dangerous guy.
In fact, rumor had it on Wednesday that the powers that be at the Academy were not going to hand over Cohen's Oscars tickets after learning about his unconventional way of promoting The Dictator.
This came about because the British thespian -- who was originally asked to be there at the Kodak Theater for Hollywood's biggest night to represent his work on the Oscar dominated best picture, Hugo -- somehow let out his plans to arrive on the red carpet as the aforementioned dangerous dictator.
In turn, this apparently caused the Motion Picture Academy to knock on Paramount's door to see if this plan is real or if it is simply a joke because the latter reason would be inappropriate.
And it is with this high praise and these high hopes that we edge toward the Best Supporting Actor category at this year's Oscar. Here are our picks.
Who Will Win: OK, OK, this is an easy category to mock, especially since the median age of its nominees is 106. But we must say this: "Beginners," despite no one actually having seen it, is a beautiful movie. It is sweet and moving and complexly told not for complexity's sake but because life itself is so damn complicated.
Christopher Plummer's turn as an elderly man who finally comes out of the closet following the death of his wife (only to die himself shortly thereafter) is an affecting one. If I don't exactly see why this supporting performance is being held up as the finest of the year, if I can point to past Plummer roles more deserving of Oscar love (his recent portrayal of Tolstoy in "The Last Station," for instance), I certainly can't begrudge the 82-year-old his win. There's no doubt that after a lifetime of service in Hollywood, he deserves it.
