[ # ] Sacha Baron Cohen has the best Emmy nom reaction!
July 16th, 2019 under Sacha Baron Cohen


Sacha Baron Cohen shocked us all with his Showtime show Who Is America. Or I should say, he shocked the people he interviewed when he showed them how stupid and full of hate they are with his undercover talk show.

Who is America brought down a few politicians (whose names I won’t mention because they need to remain forgotten) and today he earned 3 Emmy nominations for his work on it. Like the other nominees, he wrote a thank to you to the Academy. However, he did it in his own special way!

Thank you to the EMMYs for the nominations for Who Is America. It was a bare-bones production – I went out into the heartland of this country armed only with a camera crew, a makeup kit and my trusted pedophile detector.

I want to thank my crack team of researchers told to uncover bigotry, racism and hate in the US. That took them about 30 seconds… they just started following the President.

While I am flattered at these nods, it is a shame that my co-stars were not recognized. Particularly Dick Cheney, who I had hoped would come across on camera as someone who’d gleefully sent hundreds of thousands to their pointless death – and boy did he deliver. I’ve played some lunatics in my time, but the look of vacuous evil in his eyes as he autographed a waterboard kit, would put Daniel Day Lewis to shame.

There’s one more person I need to thank even though she didn’t appear in the final project, Sarah Palin. Sarah, if you are out there, and you are WAY out there, please know the last time unseen footage generated as much interest, was when Donald Trump visited a Moscow hotel room.

Thankfully, Palin won’t understand why this is a diss. However, we will. When it comes to that other tape, Cohen should not assume that she has not seen it. After all, she can see Russia from her house, and I am sure they are playing it on all the video billboards there. Therefore, she has seen it.
