Why Ryan Seacrest refused to interview Sacha Baron Cohen on the red carpet

Ryan Seacrest wasn't nice, very nice to Borat at the Oscars.

In 2012, Sacha Baron Cohen showed up to the Oscars dressed in character and threw what he called were Kim Jon II’s ashes all over Ryan Seacrest’s fancy tuxedo.

Fast forward four years later, and it seems the E! host hasn't forgotten. At this year’s 88th Academy Awards, the comedian walked past Ryan’s interview setup with his wife Isla Fischer by his side, prompting the host to say “no” and turn around. 

Sacha later joked to AP about the snub, and then decided he wanted to make peace in person. Nevermind that Ryan was in the middle of an interview with Lady Gaga, Sacha rocked up anyway telling him, "I just wanted to give you a hug".

To which Ryan had the best response:

"Hello, hello. What's in his hands? Check his hands."
