Borat is a 2006 mockumentary comedy film starring the English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in the title role of a fictitious Kazakh journalist travelling through the United States, recording real-life interactions with Americans.

Borat was also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 79th Academy Awards. Controversy surrounded the film even two years before its release.
