Bohemian Rapsody rides the Golden Globe

1

Bohemian Rhapsody took the statuette for best drama at the 76th Golden Globes and Rami Malek won best actor for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury. In a surprise to some who’d pinned predictions on the other music-saturated film on the ballot, the Queen biopic bested A Star Is Born, which won for best song, “Shallow.”

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Lady Gaga and her co-writers won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.” The song beat out “All the Stars” from “Black Panther,” “Girl in the Movies” from “Dumplin’,” “Requiem For a Private War” from “A Private War” and “Revelation” from “Boy Erased.

Rami Malek is. The actor has officially taken the Golden Globe for for Best Actor in a Drama for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

“My heart is pounding out of my chest right now,” Malek said while accepting the award. “Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this incredible recognition.”

Added Malek, “There’s only one thing we wanted to do and that is to celebrate Freddie Mercury with this film. There is only one Freddie Mercury, and nothing was going to compromise us giving him the love, celebration and adulation he deserves.”

May also addressed the early lukewarm critical response to the film. “To be honest the mistake some of the critics made was to review the trailer and then jump to conclusions. And when people do stake their claim on something it’s hard for them to withdraw. A couple of them have rather graciously said, Actually, we were wrong.”

Actress and conducer Sandra Oh and that masturbation thing with the cast of This Is Us… “All I was thinking about was that word, and landing that joke. That’s it. The entire night,” she said. “That was my last joke of the night. I was standing there with a statuette in my hand and all I’m thinking about is that word, and I’ve got to land it.”
