OK, I've been ignoring this

Sacha Baren Cohen as a legitmate awards season contender?  I thought the piece would have been about his performance in Borat, but it's not.  It's for his performance in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.   Here's a "For Your Consideration" piece from Stuart Levine writing for MSNBC.com

There may be no greater dialogue this year than Girrard taunting the crowd with the bankruptcy of American culture, which, he says, has only given the world “George Bush, Cheerios and the Thigh Master.” When asked what the French have given the world, he trumps the bar with, “Democracy, Existentialism and the ménage a trois. ” Coming five years after “freedom fries,” it’s a breath of fresh air.
