Sacha Baron Cohen's dictator dreams have been dashed!

As reported earlier, the actor wanted to come to this year's Oscars, dressed as his zany character from The Dictator. Sacha's master plan was to dress up as General Aladeen before the ceremony and then change into a tuxedo before the real show business gets started.

Unfortunately, the AMPAS is having none of that!

While his tickets have not been officially revoked, the Academy won't allow Cohen at the event unless he promises to be good.

Sacha is an Academy member and has been invited due to his work with Hugo.

While his General Aladeen character would be HIGHlarious, we don't think he'll be showing up on the red carpet.

Sad. This could have been a VERY entertaining red carpet!

    Good for them. First of all, the Oscars is not a place to wear a costume to promote a movie. Secondly, considering the atrocities happening in Syria, and the similarities between Cohen's character and Assad, it would incredibly insensitive.

    Good! I used to find him funny and groundbreaking, and now his humor is beyond annoying. He's all about 'look at me, look at me, aren't I funny?' … his schtick has gotten old, fast. Bruno was torturous, and the previews for Dictator look pretty damn awful.

    IM sure that slime bag will sneak in , one way or another
    What no one ever mentions is his actions bring about a lot of anti jew feelings

    Good, do not find him at all funny anyway.

    Attention Sasha: You're Not That Funny. Please concentrate your efforts into getting the Freddie Mercury film off the ground. If you do a stellar job at playing Freddie, you will be hoisted into the air and carried around by a happy crowd. If you continue doing this crappy comedy junk that you're not even very good at, eventually people will totally stop caring. This Dictator role sucks. Your work has devolved into schtick and that's not good. And frankly, Hugo is a knock-off Harry Potter.
