So, that’s it folks… another, another awards season, and another thoroughly predictable Academy Awards ceremony. At least this year most of the major awards went to a well-deserving film, namely The Artist. Other notable wins include Scorcesse’s Hugo cleaning up the visual gongs, and the Harry Potter coming away with absolutely flip all, despite years of solid blockbuster cinema. Despite all this, the biggest news seems to be Sacha Baron Cohen’s appearance as The Dictator, and pulling a stunt that had him marched off the red carpet quicker than you can say ‘The Academy hasn’t got a sense of humour’. Check out details of the jape here.
