Sacha Baron Cohen Says He's Hired Rudy Giuliani To Contest Golden Globes If He Loses

Sacha Baron Cohen has joked that he will hire Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani to contest the results of the Golden Globes awards if he doesn't win.

Cohen has received two nominations for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm - which also 'starred' Giuliani - and The Trial of the Chicago 7, and he's obviously been planning a response that the former US president would be proud of in the event that he doesn't take home the gongs.

Firstly, he paid a serious tribute to the people that worked on the films, saying: "I'm overwhelmed and humbled that the Hollywood Foreign Press has recognized both The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

"These nominations are a tribute to the talented creative teams that led and supported both films from inception to this moment,"

He also reserved special tribute for Chicago 7 director Aaron Sorkin and Borat co-star Maria Bakalova, who have also been nominated.

However, he then added: "These two films are different, but they share a common theme - sometimes we have to protest injustice with our own farce.

"Thank you to the HFPA for this ridiculous amount of nominations. I'm so honored [sic] - and in the event that we don't win, I promise to hire Rudy Giuliani to contest the results."

In another shorter statement on his Twitter, he confirmed that he'd already retained the services of Giuliani 'just in case we don't win'.

Of course, this is all a reference to the fact that Giuliani tried to fight the case for Donald Trump having won the election, regardless of any - pretty compelling - evidence to the contrary.

That included a memorable trip to 'Four Seasons Total Landscaping', much to the hilarity of everyone in the world not immediately involved with Trump or Giuliani.

It has ended in defeat, as well as a defamation suit against Giuliani for his baseless claims of electoral fraud.

The lawyer's role in the second Borat film turned out to be a controversial one, too.

He was caught in a compromising position with the aforementioned Bakalova, playing star fictional Kazakh TV star Borat's young daughter.

Though Giuliani said he was just tucking his shirt in, it certainly didn't look like that on the film.

Naturally, we have to point out that the former New York mayor denies all impropriety.

Given his experience, you can see why Cohen would want to hire him to contest the result of a vote, provided he doesn't plan on winning that contest.
