This Guy is a Genius

Sacha Baron Cohen, the star and creator of Borat, issued a statement through a publicist today after his movie received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Comedy or Musical and he himself garnered a Best Actor nod: “I am extremely honored. I’m very proud as well for my fellow writers as well as our director Larry Charles, and our producer Jay Roach, and am very thankful for the HFPA’s belief and acknowledgment of our film. I have been trying to let Borat know this great news but for the last 4 hours both of Kazakhstan’s telephones have been engaged. Eventually, Premier Nazarbayev answered and said he would pass on the message as soon as Borat returned from Iran, where he is guest of honor at the Holocaust Denial Conference.”
