Why is Sacha Baron barred from the Oscar ceremony?

Los Angels: Known for his portrayal of three unorthodox fictional characters -- Ali G, Borat, and Brüno, actor Sacha Baron Cohen has been barred from attending the 84th Academy Awards Sunday - because of the costume he wanted to wear!

Cohen has been told he can`t walk the red carpet dressed as General Aladeen, a character he is playing in his upcoming comedy "The Dictator", reports nypost.com.

"The Dictator" is about a nutty strongman who is part Muammar Gaddafi and part Saddam Hussein, with hints of Kim Jong-il.

Interestingly, Cohen is a voting member of the Academy and is also in the cast of "Hugo", which has been nominated for 11 Oscars, playing the evil train station inspector.
