Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Viewers Call For Maria Bakalova To Win Oscar

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Viewers Call For Maria Bakalova To Win Oscar

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm viewers are calling for Maria Bakalova to win an Oscar for her portrayal of Borat's daughter. You can watch her get within metres of Donald Trump here:

The follow-up to the 2006 hit dropped on Amazon Prime on Friday (23 October), bringing with it Baron Cohen's inimitable brand of laughs, gasps and cringes. One key difference though is the introduction of Borat's 15-year-old daughter Tutar Sagdiyeva.

When making the first Borat film, Baron Cohen had the advantage of scarcely any of his subjects having a clue who he was. But of course, the popularity of the film launched the character to international fame, which is where Tutar comes in.

In Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (to use its full title) she is as instrumental as Baron Cohen, demonstrating wit, courage and improvisational skill that the man himself would be proud of.

Her performance is so impressive that many viewers think she should win an Oscar for it:

Speaking on Good Morning America, he said: "She is hilarious, she is one of the most courageous actors in history, if she doesn't get nominated for an Oscar then that's a travesty."

Writing on Instagram, Bakalova said she was 'overwhelmed' by his words, adding that he really is like a father to her.
