Sacha Baron Cohen And Borat Set To Storm The Golden Globes
The 2021 edition of the Golden Globes is around the corner and it looks like Sacha Baron Cohen and his comedy creation, Borat, could be saying "Jagshemash" to some awards.
Borat Set To Win Big At Golden Globes
The second Borat film was an international smash when it was released in October 2020. The 96-minute movie managed to take a look at modern America. It was a satirical study of politics in the country, the Covid-19 crisis and race relations.
It was released on Amazon Prime and hit the news immediately down to controversy around a scene involving Rudy Giuliani. It got widespread acclaim and the film and it's stars are up for three awards at the Golden Globes and are favorites in two markets.
Borat is the second favorite to win Best Picture, narrowly behind Hamilton but it's almost a pick'em with the odds being so close.

49-year old Sacha Baron Cohen is no stranger to the limelight and has been a Hollywood star for a number of years. He's nominated for the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Borat and if he was to win then it would be his second Golden Globes win for playing the character, having been a winner in 2007 for the first movie.
