Reunited and it feels so good!

But maybe let Ryan Seacrest finish talking to Lady Gaga first?

Sacha Baron Cohen briefly interrupted the E!'s host's interview with the singer at the 2016 Oscars Sunday, four years after he famously tossed fake ashes at him at the annual event, when he was dressed as his character from The Dictator.  He had said they were the ashes of Kim Jong-il. Baron Cohen later apologized for the stunt.

"Just want to give you a hug," he told Seacrest at Sunday's Oscars, while dressed in a black tux. "Suit's looking good."

"Hi Lady Gaga," he said.

"What's in his hands? Check his hands," Seacrest joked.

Lady Gaga was gracious about the interruption. She had just moments earlier started to say how "absolutely nervous" she was. She is nominated for her first Oscar, for Best Original Song, for "Til It Happens to You" and  is also set to perform the track, which is featured in the Oscar-nominated campus rape documentary, The Hunting GroundVice President Joe Biden is introducing her.

"I'm just very, very privileged to be here," she told Seacrest.
