Sacha Baron Cohen, known for his popular characters Porat and Ali J, has been nominated three times for a Golden Globe. In response, the actor jokingly referred to Rudy Giuliani. Baron Cohen embarrassed former president Donald Trump’s lawyer in Borat Subsequent Movie Film, which was released last year.
As an actor, Sacha Baron Cohen has a chance to win Golden Globe Awards in the categories of “Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy” for “Borat Subsequent Movie Film” and “Best Supporting Actor” for “The Trial of the Chicago 7”. As a producer, he is competing for an award in the “Best Film – Musical or Comedy” category for “Borat Subsequent Movie Film”.
Last year, the British comedian again took on the role of Porat, a reporter from Kazakhstan traveling across the United States. In the 2006 movie Borat sequel, Republican leader Rudy Giuliani played an unwanted supporting role. In a high-profile scene, Porat’s “daughter” interviews Giuliani. Acting flirting. The most interesting clip shows Giuliani lying on the bed with his hand in his pants, near Porat’s daughter.
Regarding the aforementioned scene, Baron Cohen later said, “If the president’s attorney thinks what he’s done there is decent behavior, then I feel my heart about what he’s doing with other female journalists in hotel rooms.” But according to what Giuliani himself said, there was nothing wrong: the politician said in a series of tweets that he had put his shirt back into his pants.
This is Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney of the President of the United States.

In response to his three nominations, Baron Cohen couldn’t resist naming Giuliani. “Thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the organization behind the Golden Globes) for this ridiculous number of nominations,” Cohen said. “We (and his crew, editor) are proud – and in the event that we don’t win, you’ve actually hired Rudy Giuliani to contest the results.”
Wow! I was shocked and humbled by my nomination for three Golden Globe Awards, and congratulations to the amazing one Embed a Tweet very!
We’re very proud – and in the unlikely event that we win nothing, you’ve already hired Rudy Giuliani to compete for the results. pic.twitter.com/CSligPsmI8
