Cohen released Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm last year. Cohen has two MTV Award nominations for Best Performance in a Movie and Best Duo with Maria Bakalova for Borat. He is also nominated for Best Performance in a Movie for Trial of the Chicago 7, in which he played Abbie Hoffman.
Cohen's character Borat, a reporter from Kazakhstan trying to learn about America, appeared on his TV show Da Ali G Show. Borat asks people provocative questions to get them to embarrass themselves or reveal their prejudices.
Borat's first film premiered in 2006. Subsequent Moviefilm also earned Oscar nominations for its screenplay and Bakalova's supporting role.
MTV previously announced presenters for the Movie & TV Awards, including Henry Golding, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie and Eric Andre. On May 17, MTV will air The MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED for reality TV.
