Sacha Baron Cohen Invites This Public Figure to Be His Date at Golden Globes 2019

Sacha Baron Cohen was nominated for a Golden Globe award this morning for his work in Who Is America?.

The 47-year-old actor and comedian is reacting to the nomination in a statement where he asked former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin to be his date.

“I appreciate the Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing me, which luckily is something that none of the guests on the show did. This is such a special honour for me as the HFPA are always among the first to really appreciate my ever evolving humour,” Sacha told Deadline. “I am humbled to be recognised among such a wonderful group of nominees, all of whom I admire. This show was a labour of love for over two years. It is a shame they overlooked the amazing performances by the rest of the cast, particularly Dick Cheney and Roy Moore. Meanwhile Ms Palin, despite being cut from the show, I hope you will accept my invitation to be my date for the ceremony.”

Sarah reportedly did an interview for the show, but it never aired.
