It’s been a pretty big year for Sacha Baron Cohen. The two movies that he made last year – Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and The Trial of the Chicago 7 – have kept him busy on the awards circuit, nominated in multiple categories for both films. And now, he’s receiving another honor.
It’s been announced that Cohen will receive the Comedic Genius Award from the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Cohen will be the fourth recipient of the honor behind Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, and Melissa McCarthy. In addition, Cohen is also up for three other awards at the ceremony that includes Best Performance In A Movie (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Best Movie (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), and Best Duo (with Maria Bakalova in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm).
Watch the MTV Movie & TV Awards hosted by Leslie Jones on May 16th.
