Borat smashed the box office again this weekend, with an estiamted $29 million dollar weekend.
I've been very surprised at the popularity of Sacha Baron Cohen's movie about a Kazakhstani reporting on American life and culture.
Sarcha Baron Cohen, famous for his HBO comedy/interview program Da Ali G Show, has sneaked his way further into the mainstream this year, not only with his ever popular film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, but also as the gay french race car driver in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
Oscar doesn't typically look to fondly on slap stick far flung comedy, but I've got to wonder, if they would this crazy knuckle head who plays hipster Ali G, Gay frenchman Jean Girard, and Kazakhstani Borat Sagdiyev. Nah, probably not!
But I do forsee him having a great opportunity to receive a golden globe opportunity (depending on how the Hollywood Foriegn Press perceives the performance) and based off last years Oscar presenters, I have a feeling Borat will at least make an appearance at this years award show.
