Globe Nominee Reactions: Borat In Iran
The Hollywood Reporter gives a rundown of reactions from all the nominees. Sacha Baron Cohen is the funniest: "I have been trying to let Borat know this great news but for the last four hours both of Kazakhstan's telephones have been engaged. Eventually, Premier Nazarbayev answered and said he would pass on the message as soon as Borat returned from Iran, where he is guest of honor at the Holocaust Denial Conference." And Jennifer Hudson gives the smartest, most politic response in an attempt to soothe the hurt feelings of Jennifer Holliday: "I just hope the original Dreamgirls are pleased [by these Globe nominations]: this is a tribute to them. I'd love to meet Jennifer Holliday." Here's Variety's similar story.
