Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen surprised E! host Ryan Seacrest on the 2012 Oscars red carpet.
Arriving to the ceremony dressed as his latest alter ego "The Dictator," Cohen accidentally dumped an urn full of what he claimed was the ashes of the late North Korean leader Kim Jon Il all over Seacrest. Classic.
"Today" show host Matt Lauer will reportedly reconsider leaving the NBC show after his contract ends in December, if the network gives him a significant pay increase... to the tune of $30M?!
According to TMZ, the negotiations are currently in the works, but if NBC agrees, Lauer could earn as much as $30 million a year. He is currently taking home $17 million, which means the $30-million payout would give him a whopping 76 percent pay raise.
Since they recently announced their engagement, bride-to-be Drew Barrymore and fiancé Will Kopelmen's first official photo was released. The actress beamed while wearing her 4-carat, diamond-banded engagement bling designed by Graff Diamonds.
