And the Oscar goes to Sacha Bar....

If you're a fan of awards ceremony hosts who actually have the capacity to make people laugh (rather than force an awkward groan) then you'll be saddened by this news: Sacha Baron Cohen has been axed as a presenter of the Oscars because of a joke he planned to make at Avatar's expense. What with James Cameron in the audience, producers didn't want anyone to get offended. This makes us leap to one quite massive conclusion: Hollywood power-people take themselves very seriously. Er, we might have already known that.....

Apparently, SBC wanted to dress up as a female Avatar in a blue skin-tight suit. He then planned to accuse James Cameron of getting him pregnant. Ha! It worked for us. Unfortunately not for Hollywood top brass who immediately pulled the plug citing 'creative differences.'

Which bland as rice crackers presenter will be filling his boots? Myleene Klass?
