17/12/06 - Sacha nominated for gloden globe award for Borat movie!
Sacha Baron Cohen has been nominated for a golden globe award on the back of numerous other awards earlier in the year. Sacha said "he was extremely honoured to be nominated as best actor in a musical or comedy and for the film to be nominated for best picture in that category."
Sacha added that he has been trying to let Borat know of the good news, however "for the past 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 honour at the Holocaust Denial Conference." Read more..
04/11/06 - Cohen signs Bruno movie deal!

21/11/06 - Sue that Jew Cohen... or is that Stalin!?
Since the release of the Borat movie it looks like everyone wants a piece of the action, and a number of people who appeared in the film are now taking legal action. They claim that they have been portrayed as 'bigots and racists' and it has damaged them in one way or another. Borat's 'mother' is one person taking action who is in fact a Hungarian peasant.
20th Century Fox have dismissed these claims, and have commented that these allegations have 'no merit', however with takings of over £47m from the US box office alone, I don't think they are too bothered by a few angry people who made the movie as great as it is.

On a separate note - check out the picture to the right. There is quite a resemblance between Borat and Stalin which was pointed out in the weeks Private Eye magazine. Why not discuss this picture and lots more at the Boyakasha Forums!

In response to images printed in US magazines displaying pictures of the US and Kazakh presidents shaking hands Borat said "If there is one more item of Uzbek propaganda claiming that we do not drink fermented horse urine, give death penalty for baking bagels, or export over 300 tonnes of human pubis per year, then we will be left with no alternative but to commence bombardment of their cities with our catapults."
Meanwhile Kazakh press secretary Roman Vasilenko said he was worried that some may take the Borat routine seriously and told Reuters journalists "[Borat]' is not a Kazakh. What he represents is a country of Boratastan, a country of one.
