Muriel Awards: Best Lead Performance, Male

"One of the pleasant surprises in Borat is the performance of Sacha Baron Cohen, who has added levels previously unseen to the Borat character. This is a Borat terrified of an old Jewish couple, mortified to learn of Pamela Anderson's sexual past, genuinely thrilled to learn of the death of his wife, and, at his most vulnerable point, pushed to the edge of collapse. Cohen handles all of this with aplomb and total dedication to his character. It's rare you even see such devotion to a role in any film, much less a broad comedy. Cohen owns the role, his transformation is complete. It's honestly one of the best performances of the last couple of years." ~ Lucas McNelly

Remember when someone remarked on how big the Lubezki win was in cinematography and I said "you ain't seen nothin' yet"?

That was awesome.
