‘Borat’ Pal Snubbed by Awards Show

Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Borat co-star Ken Davitian wasn’t invited to the Golden Globe Awards ceremony on Monday night, but ended up stealing the show.

The pair star in the hit film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and share a memorable scene where they wrestle on a bed naked.

Davitian was spotted by a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the Beverly Hilton Hotel the afternoon of the awards show, who insisted on giving him a tour of the ballroom set-up.

The star explains, “He asked me where I was sitting later, and I told him I didn’t have a ticket. Immediately, he ran and got me two tickets.”

At the ceremony, Davitian met up with Cohen backstage, where the pair worked on the hilarious acceptance speech that Cohen used when he won best actor in a comedy or musical.

Cohen described being face-to-face with Davitian’s “dark side” and the horror of breathing in air from a “rancid pocket.”
