Ryan Seacrest had quite a messy pre-show at the 2012 Oscars when Sacha Baron Cohen (as Dictator alter-ego General Shabazz Aladeen) dumped an urn of Kim Jong Il's "ashes" all over the E! News host's Burberry tuxedo.  Ryan spoke out about the incident on his radio show, revealing he was not in on the joke.

“I definitely did not know that he was going to do that!” the host said during On Air With Ryan Seacrest. ”He comes over, and I asked him a couple of questions, but...You know that feeling in your gut. You feel like, 'This is going too normally.'"

Ryan admits he knew the interview was taking a turn for the worst when he saw the urn coming at him. "It was getting closer to my chest, and then it tipped over, and it wasn’t the wind. He spilt it on my tuxedo," he said.

Thankfully, his mom taught him one very valuable lesson: always bring two suit jackets to the red carpet. He tweeted:

"My mom always told me to pack two jackets for red carpets, always wondered why. Now I know."

    Sasha Baron Cohen: what a jerk! This night is about movies that have earned the attention, not a free marketing audience to hype your own product. Tacky, rude, inappropriate,
