Borat 2 arrived on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, but as well as the usual ridiculous antics from Borat Sagdiyev, the thing that stood out most for viewers was the incredible performance from Maria Bakalova, who plays his daughter, Tutar. 

Viewers have called for the 24-year-old Bulgarian actress, who graduated from film school just last year, to be given an Oscar as she stole the show in her first big movie role. 

Maria, who plays 15-year-old Tutar in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, has certainly done enough to warrant some serious recognition. 

The actress managed to get 76-year-old statesman Rudy Giuliani into a hotel room after an interview about coronavirus, where he was secretly filmed reclining on a bed before Sacha Baron Cohen entered as Borat to yell at him: ‘She’s 15. She’s too old for you.’

Maria was also seen shaking hands with Donald Trump Jr and standing within feet of President Donald Trump during clips that were not shown in the film after managing to make her way into the White House. 

While the first film saw Borat being the one to push the boundaries, viewers thought Maria was even more fearless than him in the second instalment, hailing it Oscar-worthy.

They tweeted: ‘If it’s eligible, Maria Bakalova should get an Oscar nom for her performance; 100% commitment to a character in some very precarious situations’ and ‘The Borat sequel was awesome. Maria Bakalova was one heck of a scene stealer and she deserves an Oscar.’

Others added: ‘Genuinely think Maria Bakalova should get an Oscar for Borat’, ‘Just give Maria Bakalova the Oscar already’ and ‘Oscar? Psshh. Maria Bakalova should get a Nobel Prize.’

Viewers were blown away by her commitment to the character: ‘Put Maria Bakalova in the Oscar race. To have dared to do the stuff she does for this movie, all while never breaking character for a second, is an incredible achievement. The perfect double act for Sacha Baron Cohen.’

Borat 2 is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
