She’s the Bulgarian actress who has become the breakout star of Hollywood’s awards season. But Maria Bakalova – tipped to win Best Supporting Actress at tonight’s BAFTAs – has left some in her native country raging with her portrayal of Tutar Sagdiyev in the second Borat movie. Simeon Dimitrov, Maria’s acting teacher from her home town of Burgas, tells Goss: “Here in Bulgaria, unfortunately, some are calling her performance amateurish. “Some of the local press had a field day with that. And then come the nominations. “There’s a gulf between how we look at cinema here and how major industries look at them. “I don’t like this movie – I don’t like the way it’s made.

Stuart Dallas scores well taken goal late before Liam Cooper sent off for reckless tackle on Gabriel Jesus Ferran Torres scores equaliser but Dallas pounces for second as City push for a winner A stunning and deserved victory by the ten men of Leeds United will have no lasting impact on Manchester City’s march towards the Premier League title but the manner of his fourth defeat of the campaign will leave Pep Guardiola with plenty of food for thought as he targets even greater prizes. Two goals from Stuart Dallas, the winner in the 91st minute, saw Leeds join a list that now also features Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United as the only teams to have inflicted defeat on City in their 49 games this campaign. But, brilliant as Leeds were, this defeat was also, at least in part, self-inflicted as Guardiola made sweeping changes ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final visit to Borussia Dortmund.
