Can The Oscars Handle The Dictator?

The Academy says it wants comedy to be the focus of this year’s Oscar broadcast. I mean, how else to compete with the NBA All-Star game, not to mention the memory of the wall-to-wall entertainment that was the Grammys? But comedy for the stuffy (i.e. old white male) Academy means Billy Crystal, not Sascha Baron Cohen (pictured), who wants to attend as his raunchy new movie character, The Dictator. Will Bruno be allowed? There’s a tape delay, so he can always be bleeped.
