Sacha Baron Cohen Oscars

Even though Sacha lashed out at the Academy in a hilarious viral video, he has his tickets in hand and is excited to cause some mischief!

Contrary to previous reports, Sacha Baron Cohen will be allowed to attend the 2012 Oscars — and he took to Twitter in character as The Dictator to show his excitement!

Sacha, 40, took to the film’s Twitter as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen on Feb. 24 to write, “VICTORY IS OURS! Today the Mighty Nation of Wadiya triumphed over the Zionist snakes of Hollywood. Evil and all those who made Satan their protector were vanquished and driven into the Pacific Sea. What I am trying to say here is that the Academy have surrendered and sent over two tickets and a parking pass!”

Academy Awards producer Brian Grazer also confirmed the news to Access Hollywood.

“We absolutely respect him as an artist and he’s allowed to come,” he said. “He’s coming.”
