What a year for the movie "Bohemian Rhapsody"! Sunday night Rami Malek won his first Golden Globe award for his spot on portrayal of Queen singer Freddie Mercury, and the film was also named the best overall drama film.
For Malek, 37, 2018 was a breakout year, as “Bohemian Rhapsody” made over $740 million in global box office sales, and then pulls the underdog upset over huge movies like “A Star Is Born” and “Black Panther” to win best drama at the Golden Globes.
In his 20's Rami's acting career got off to a shaky start as he was delivering pizzas in Hollywood to try to make ends meet, but in 2004 he caught his first break when landed his first TV role, on “Gilmore Girls,” in 2004. In 2015 he scored an Emmy award as the top lead actor in a drama series for his work on “Mr. Robot.”
After his Golden Globe win is there any doubt that he'll get an Oscar nomination when they're announced on January 22nd?
I had a chance to sit down with Rami Malek and the cast of "Bohemian Rhapsody" just before the movie opened in November, and he talked about how much it meant for him honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury by working hard to get it right.
