This is AWESOME!!  Last night on the Red Carpet at The Academy Awards, Ryan Seacrest was the victim of a huge publicity stunt.  Sasha Baron Cohen, who attended the awards as "The Dictator," showed with an urn full of ashes.  Watch what happened!

As predicted, Ryan proved himself to be the most humorless man in show business and basically quit doing interviews . . . despite the fact that his Red Carpet co-hosts said he should be proud to have been the one chosen for the stunt!
