    The movie was secretly filmed throughout 2020 and is scheduled to be released on Prime on October 23.

    Holy shit. Remember when Mike Pence was interrupted by a Trump impersonator at CPAC earlier this year? Turns out, that was Sacha Baron Cohen, in character as Borat, doing that.

    Lol! If this is as good as the first one, we can possibly see this get nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay again! Most hilarious nomination since Jackass getting one! 😂

    BUMPing this thread as the film is widely available now on Amazon Prime, the Giuliani scene is getting a lot of media attention, and there is Oscar buzz for Maria Bakalova.

    Bakalova is currently on my personal Best Actress list. Her performance is what carried the film IMO.

    If they campaign her in Supporting, fine. But I feel like she dominates the majority of Borat 2. Her storyline is just as significant (or even more) than the titular character.

    I absolutely loved this. Hilarious, shocking, and yet quite touching at points. Never expected a Borat movie to get me emotional.

    I think Bakalova should definitely be in the race, it’s a comedy star turn if ever I’ve seen one.

    SBC is having quite the year between this and Trial of the Chicago 7. He’s probably getting at least a comedy Globe for Borat at this point, right?

    Bakalova is comedy gold in this and the Best Supporting Actress field feels like the least competitive of the year. Maybe she’ll surprise, but I think the AMPAS’ acting branch isn’t likely to touch her performance. Still, I expect a GG and a SAG nod for her.

    Sacha Baron Cohen is campaigning lead for this film, and supporting for Chicago 7.

    I’m already preparing myself for a Maria Bakalova snub. 🙄

    The Oscars always throw a curveball.

    I’m already preparing myself for a Maria Bakalova snub. 🙄 The Oscars always throw a curveball.

    Bakalova is currently in the top 5 among the experts, but I personally believe she’ll be snubbed in the end.

    The warning sign for me is that not a single one of those same experts predict her to win, while two people who are either tied with or ranked below her (Ellen Burstyn and Glenn Close) do have experts predicting a win for them. Meanwhile, the three people ranked above her (Olivia Colman, Amanda Seyfried, and Yuh-Jung Youn) also have experts predicting wins for them.

    To me, this a sign that the voters will end up having more passion for the others’ performances than they will for Bakalova’s. And since there are five such performances, there won’t be enough room for Bakalova to get in.

    This, in my opinion, can be attributed to the following factors:

    1) “Traditionalist” voters intentionally overlooking Bakalova’s performance because it is largely driven by improvised interactions with non-actors (and perhaps also because of the controversial reputation of both the film itself and the man behind it);

    2) Voters who like Glenn Close so much that they are still willing to include her on their ballots despite Hillbilly Elegy getting mostly negative reviews;

    3) Voters who see an opportunity to make history by nominating Ellen Burstyn again this late in her career, and also breaking Christopher Plummer’s record for the oldest acting nominee ever.

    Twenty days later, I’m reversing my position on Bakalova’s chances.

    Based on who’s been getting nominations and wins in the precursors, I’ve dropped both Burstyn and Seyfried from my predictions (Close, Colman, and Youn are safe). Their spots are being taken by Bakalova and Zengel.
