Sacha Baron Cohen Will Receive The Comedic Genius Award At The 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Sacha Baron Cohen Will Receive Comedic Genius Award 2021 Mtv Movie Tv Awards

Just last month, Sacha Baron Cohen was recognized with a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the 2021 Oscars for his work as Abbie Hoffman in Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7 . As that film landed major awards props, Baron Cohen's other key 2020 cinematic moment — the resurrection of his most famous character, Borat Sagdiyev, for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm — was likewise highly lauded for its immense comedy, deep irreverence, and political satire. It was a good year to be Baron Cohen.

And the celebration continues: The Academy Award-nominated actor, screenwriter, and comedian will be honored with the Comedic Genius Award at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards , airing live on MTV from Los Angeles on Sunday, May 16.

The designation 'honors an actor who has made incomparable contributions to the world of comedy, providing a major influence through their work and transforming the genre at large,' according to a press release. Though he may be best known for his work as Borat, including in the seminal 2006 film that became a worldwide phenomenon, Baron Cohen's character work has colored 20 years of comedy, notably via his HBO series Da Ali G Show , his subversive Showtime saga Who Is America? , his 2009 film Brüno , and his memorable turn as French race-car driver Jean Girard in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby .

Baron Cohen will become only the fourth-ever recipient of the award, following Melissa McCarthy in 2016, Kevin Hart in 2015, and Will Ferrell in 2013.
