Oscar Hangover: Watch "Snubbed 2012: An Oscar Tribute" and Ryan Seacrest's Interview with the Dictator [Video]
Posted 02.27.12 by Ryan
After the weeks of party planning, debating picks for the Oscar pools, and filling out Oscar Bingo cards, the winners have been decided, the plastic cups and streamers are being cleaned up, and the Academy Awards are officially over. After an evening that saw two movies (Hugo and The Artist) collect almost every award available, we're sure there are many out there experiencing a little "Oscar hangover" today. So, while the afternoon coffee is being brewed, we'll share a few moments to help ease that ringing bell that was a night of Oscar celebration.
First, before everyone moves on to predicting the movie that will win the gold next year, what about the movies and actors that didn't get nominated this year? JoBlo has compiled a video tribute to several deserving nominees in their "Snubbed 2012: An Oscar Tribute," including performances from actors Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender (amongst others), and everything associated with the action-thriller Drive.
If you missed some of the pre-Oscars coverage, easily one of the best Red Carpet moments occurred when Ryan Seacrest interviewed Sacha Baron Cohen, who strolled around as Admiral Gen. Shabazz Aladeen, his character from the upcoming comedy, The Dictator.
Cohen was initially banned (more or less) from the ceremony for wanting to appear in-character, but was finally allowed to attend the Oscars as Aladeen, though only on the red carpet. Seacrest eventually admits that he knew he was going to end up getting the short end of Cohen's Dictator schtick, but as revealed in E! Online's coverage, he clearly didn't find it half as hilarious as Cohen probably did.
We hoped that helped your "Oscar hangover." To see the entire list of winners, head here, just don't forget to return your tux!
