The sequel ‘Borat: Next Cinema Tape’ debuted on Amazon Prime and quickly became the center of attention due to its pin pricks to President Donald Trump and the lifestyle of Americans.
Besides Sacha Baron Cohen’s cynical charisma, audiences praised Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova, who made her American film debut after competing for the role of Tutar Sagdiyev with more than 600 actresses.
In the plot, Tutar is Borat’s teenage daughter.
In fact, Cohen campaigned for Bakalova to be nominated for a 2021 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress because of her performance.
During an interview with Indie Wire, the star said it would be a joke if the rookie didn’t remember among the nominees.
“She’s an incredible actress. We interviewed over 600 young people from all over the world for the role and she is hilarious, made us laugh a lot and won us over right away. She’s one of the bravest actresses in history, that’s no exaggeration. If she’s not nominated for an Oscar, it’s a scam, a joke. “
“She’s hilarious and has the ability to make you cry or smile, which is why we chose her. When we did the breakup scene in the movie, I had to stop because I was so moved. She is unique. Imagine coming to America for the first time and playing a role with real people in terrifying situations. She overcame it all. She is a revelation.
Fortunately, Bakalova may be eligible for an Oscar, even though “ Borat 2 ” has been released direct for streaming.
Recalling that the Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences announced shortly after the start of the coronavirus pandemic that it would ignore its eligibility policy which requires titles to remain in the cinema for a certain time.
Indeed, the current scenario in the world has caused closures in several cinema networks.
