“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” star Maria Bakalova celebrated her win at the New York Film Critic Circle Awards in Miami.
The Bulgarian actress, who plays Tutar, the daughter of Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev (Sacha Baron Cohen) in the film, picked up the best supporting actress award Friday, and was subsequently spotted enjoying a night out with pals at Miami hotspot Swan.
The 24-year-old arrived at the restaurant around 9 p.m. Friday, accompanied by friends including Michael Bay, Jeff Beacher, and agent Cade Hudson.
“They were drinking,” a spy told Page Six, adding that it was a “very celebratory tone for the whole evening.”
The restaurant surprised Bakalova with a sparkler parade complete with a “Congrats Maria” sign as they rolled out a giant miso chocolate chip cookie for dessert.
We hear the actress and her crew enjoyed the celebration for a few hours, making their exit around midnight.
Bakalova and Hudson, 32, were seen hanging on the beach earlier that day, the Daily Mail reported Monday.
“Borat” creator Cohen is firmly in her corner as well.
“She’s an incredible actor. We interviewed 600 young women from all around the world and she’s hilarious,” the 49-year-old Cohen told “Good Morning America” back in October. “She is one of the most courageous actors in history. If she doesn’t get nominated for an Oscar then that’s a travesty.’”
