Sacha Baron Cohen No Longer An Oscar Presenter…. Because Of James Cameron!

| Filed under: AwardzSacha Baron CohenBen Stiller


It was his own decision to leave - mostly because James Cameron has the mother tree stuck up his ass!

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen was announced as an Oscar presenter, but has since changed his mind. Cohen and Ben Stiller had a sketch planned where Sacha would appear as the female Na’vi from Avatar and Ben would translate.

It would begin to appear obvious that Stiller wasn’t translating correctly because Cohen would begin to become upset. Eventually Sacha would pull open “her” evening gown to reveal that she was pregnant with Cameron’s love child and confront her babydaddy a la Jerry Springer.

But Oscar producer/pussy Bill Mechanic turned down the HIGHlarious idea because he was afraid it would offend Best Director nominee/giant tool James Cameron. So much so that he thought Cameron would walk out of the live telecast!

WTF?! That would have been amazing!

It seems Mechanic was head of Twentieth Century Fox when Cameron’s Titanic went over budget and schedule, so he's seen the worst of him.

“Let’s just say that Cameron isn’t known to be, shall we say, ‘self-deprecating,’” claims an insider.

But wouldn't that be perfect revenge for all the bullshiz he put you through?! Everyone is so afraid to step on toes!

Cohen’s spokesman, Matt Labov, explains his client's withdraw from the presenter's list.

“I hate to use the term, because it's so ubiquitous, but there were ‘creative differences,'" said Labov. "Nothing acrimonious, but both sides felt that since they couldn’t agree, [Cohen] might as well remain in London.”

Get a life, James Cameron - or better yet, buy one!

  1. 1

    Sounds really stupid…glad it was cut.

  2. 2

    It sounds like a stupid idea in the first place. And considering how often you get things wrong, I'm not buying your "Cameron is a jerk" spin. No doubt Cameron's life is just fine; the last two movies he's touched have been blockbusters. How's that boy band thing working for you, Parasite?

  3. 3

    Don`t forget, Cameron declared himself King of the world at the Oscars when he won for Titanic.

  4. 4

    While the skit sounds stupid, I do not like James Cameron. Everytime he wins something he is so cocky. So this story isn't really shocking.

  5. 5

    that idea sounds really stupid and ill-placed at the oscars. i liked the idea of sacha baron cohen being a presenter but that skit they had in mind is way too over the top.

  6. 6

    Glad he's not presenting. Sounds like a ridiculous skit to begin with. Why do the Oscars think this shit if funny is beyond me.

  7. 7

    Funny idea, DO IT!

  8. 8

    Personally, I don't think that sounds funny at all.

  9. 9

    what a little baby james cameron is. how sad that a grown man is such a nasty little dictator that other people are afraid to have a sense of humour. he may be a rich man financially but his behaviour shows he is a very poor man emotionally and spiritually.

  10. 10

    I think it was silly of this guy to assume that Cameron would be upset. I'm sure he can have a laugh at himself, and if not he still has billions of dollars to cuddle him to sleep at night. I'm not surprised he got upset at Bill when things went over budget! When you spend millions more money than planned a director is well within his rights to get mad. I think the real situation is that Bill is too scared of James. Idiot.

  11. 11

    Sounds stupid and infantile. Is this an episode of "Jackass" or the Oscars? Maybe they should have Ben Still fart out the songs nominated for "Best Song" too….

  12. 12

    Cohen needs to stay in England and keep The Europeans laughing. He appears to me to be a terrorist/baby killer who should never be allowed in the U.S.A. again.

  13. 13

    Ha! Cameron bashing now?
    Your hate list is infinite, Perez.

    And Sacha Baron Cohen? Who thinks he's important anymore?

  14. 14

    Save that stupid joke for the MTV movie awards where bigwigs like Cameron will not be in attendance as they have much more important things to do than to appeal to an audience of pre-teens like yourself you fat Cuban immigrant.

  15. 15

    James Cameron might be a good director but he is not a very good person, he has cheated on all 5 of his wives, he is not easy to work with and I hear he has quite a temper.

  16. 16

    It just goes to show how out of touch these hollywood egtists are. They make Senators look like just regular folks.

  17. 17

    glad it was cut. i hate james cameron for what he did to rob steiger, he's a dick, but this doesn't sound funny.

  18. 18

    Sounds stupid. I'm glad it was axed. Sacha Cohen is a moron.
    GO JAMES GO!!!!!

  19. 19

    That sounded horrible, like something the MTV Movie Awards would find too unfunny to air. Glad its cut. Hell, I think this might be the year that I won't watch the Oscars. i seriously don't care this year.

  20. 20

    James Cameron is the best human being on earth I love him!

  21. 21

    Jame's Cameron is obviously full of himself but this was a stupid sketch idea anyway and frankly Sacha Baron Cohen is not funny or relevant.

  22. 22

    Half the stuff Sacha does isn't funny anyway. It is probably better they did cut it out of the program.

  23. 23

    this is the oscars not the mtv video awards, James doesnt deserve to be humiliated or his movie be paraody at this event save it for snl

  24. 24

    Sacha Baron Cohen is so freakin' played out anyway, it would have just meant yet another juvy awkward moment-which seems to be all he's capable of anyway.

  25. 25

    Perhaps SBC could have been a gay dude hitting on Stiller, and Stiller shot him dead on stage. Would ya like that?

    Most of us would find that HIGHlarious.

  26. 26

    Cameron is a jerk, HOWEVER i also do not like Sacha!!!! For crying out loud he upset/hurt a lady so much in Palmdale, Ca (where i live) that she is now in a wheel chair. So i wish they were both cut out of the oscars.

  27. 27

    Cameron may be a bitch but his work is awesome. JMO!

  28. 28

    I agree Cameron is a tool but he simply has more power in Hollywood than Cohen ever will.

  29. 29

    Its a really stupid idea!!! sounds like the MTV movie awards not the Oscars
    that Sasha aka Bruno is so stupid, i dont find him funny at all

  30. 30

    Re: backstreetboysarethebest

    Hey fool, it was confirmed a LONG time ago that the woman you're talking about was a fat fucking liar. She originally said that Cohen "offensively touched, pushed and battered" her, then said that he didn't actually hit her, just he used "offensive" language and embarrassed her.

    Then she apparently was so hysterical that she hit her head on concrete, then found herself somehow confined to a wheelchair.

    In conlclusion, get your facts straight next time, because I just owned you.

  31. 31

    EVERYTHING that Sacha Baron Cohen does is DISGUSTING and not fully at all. I'm thrilled he was cut from a nice formal evening. Now I can watch the show.

  32. 32

    cameron needs to deflate his ego!

  33. 33

    Ummmm sounds really un-funny!
    So is Sacha Baron Cohen!

  34. 34

    at the oscars? dumb idea! i don't find sasha amusing. and sasha is a girls name dammit

  35. 35

    Because Eminem probably didn't sign up for all that happened and John knows it….like someone else said….IT'S NOT AN EPISODE OF JACKASS. It's the freaking Oscars!!!!! I used to like Sascha…not anymore. He is gross to me now…he does too much for show.

  36. 36

    Cameron is an idiot. He needs to be offended for making such a worthless propaganda piece.

  37. 37

    Sacha Baron Cohen is offensive on every level…his humor may do well at a beer bash but hardly televised awards show.

  38. 38

    Bullshit post Perez. Don't rip somebody before they have a chance to be an asshole - Did James cameron say that he would walk out. Did he refuse to be there if Cohen was?
    Also, Cohen is an unfunny jerk.

  39. 39

    Thank the Lord they didn't do that. So distasteful!

  40. 40

    It sounds stupid, as is anything that Cohen does.

  41. 41

    You know James Cameron might get proud when he does win, although most of it is satirical, and some people are just to dumb to get that. He never puts down the people he is competing against, like the douche from The Hurt Locker did toward him. Anyway, Cameron pretty much single-handedly saved the movie industry, twice. He has a reason to be proud.

  42. 42

    They probably realized that it was stupid.
    Sounds like a really bad SNL skit.

  43. 43

    my Step Mom had a good friend who actually did work on Titanic.. He was one of the camera guys.. anyways, when they shot the scene where the end of the boat is like completely in the air.. James Cameron looked at the camera guy and said 'You better not screw this up.' in a really mean tone.. so the camera guy walked off set. I swear.. I couldn't believe it when she told me that story.. like Cameron is a hot head.. I can believe that he would freak out about something as corny as that skit that was gonna be done @ the Oscars. He must have no sense of humor at all..

  44. 44

    Cameron seems so ful of himself - obviously - King of the World- unfortunately he is talented but hope Hurt Locker wins all….

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    You're telling Cameron to 'get a life' on this, and he probably doesn't even know a thing about what they were considering doing, lol.

  46. 46

    Perez, why in the world are you so upset with James Cameron. I mean, "get a life James Cameron…". Come on, they don't KNOW what his opinion would have been, they just ASSUMED he would have walked out. And personally, that idea sounds completely lame, not in the least, hilarious.
