Rudy Giuliani Scored A Razzie Nomination For His Notorious ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ Appearance

While Maria Bakalova picked up a well-deserved Golden Globes nomination for her work in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, her “co-star” Rudy Giuliani is scoring accolades in the opposite direction after being nominated for a Razzie.

As it was widely reported following Borat Subsequent Moviefilm‘s release, Giuliani was caught in an extremely compromising situation while conducting what he thought was an interview with Bakalova’s character in a hotel room. After having several drinks, Giuliani lies down on his bed. He then proceeds to put his hands down in his pants, only to be interrupted by Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat bursting into the room. Giuliani contends that he was tucking his shirt back in after taking off his mic while Cohen has simply said that the scene speaks for itself. The embarrassing moment only got worse for Giuliani as he proceeded to melt down in interviews after even a Fox Business host quizzed him over what she saw.

What isn’t debatable is the fact that Giuliani is now up for a Razzie for “Worst Supporting Actor” and “Worst Screen Combo: thanks to his performance in the Borat sequel, which was entirely Rudy being Rudy.
