Borat Creator Named One of Britain's Most Powerful

Sacha Baron Cohen, creator of the hit comic character Borat, has been named one of Britain's most powerful men on a list that puts him one place behind Prince William.

The 35-year-old comedian debuted in 19th place on GQ magazine's annual list, announced on Monday. The publication said the ranking showed men "shaping the fabric and direction of the nation" over the next 12 months and beyond.

Cohen won a Golden Globe for his performance as a boorish Kazakh journalist in the surprise box office hit "Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". The film incensed Kazakh authorities who said it portrayed Kazakhs as bigoted, oafish and primitive.
