Rami Malek Takes Home BAFTA Award For Best Actor

Rami Malek wins yet another BAFTA Award for Best Actor commemorating his Freddie Mercury performance in Bohemian Rhapsody.

As he accepted the award, Malek said, “I am beyond moved…This is for and because of you, gorgeous,” while paying tribute to Freddie Mercury.

Malek was competing against Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born), Christian Bale (Vice), Steve Coogan (Stan & Ollie) and Viggo Mortensen (Green Book) for the Best Actor category.

The film landed another award on the same name for Best Sound and it was nominated for several other categories including Outstanding British Film, Costume Design, Make-Up & Hair, Cinematography and Editing categories.

In late January, Malek landed his first Oscar’s Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.

Bohemian Rhapsody was also the big winner at the 76th Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, as Rami Malek won the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, while the film took the prize for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

Queen guitarist, Brian May, also said that Malek deserved to be nominated for an Oscar for his ‘remarkable’ performance.

Bohemian Rhapsody was released early November 2018, and has grossed over $406 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time.

Rami Malek is also known for his lead role as Elliot Anderson in ‘Mr Robot’, which he won a Critics’ Choice Award and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor.
