Borat 2: Kazakhstan Wants Sacha Baron Cohen’s Movie Disqualified From Oscar Consideration

While Amazon has not issued an official response to this letter, following the KAA’s earlier try and have Borat Subsequent Moviefilm faraway from Prime Video, Sacha Baron Cohen stated in a press release final month that the explanation he selected Kazakhstan for his character to return from was as a result of “almost nobody in the U.S. knew anything about.” This allowed him to create “a wild, comedic, fake world,” and Cohen described the real-life Kazakhstan as “a beautiful country with a modern, proud society — the opposite of Borat’s version.” It’s value mentioning that Kazakhstan’s authorities, which banned Borat again within the day, has been extra receptive to the sequel, going to far as to make use of the character’s “Very Nice” catchphrase as a part of a tourism marketing campaign.
