Bohemian Rhapsody pulls off large upset at Golden Globes

Rami Malek took home a Globe for best actor for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

On Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he played the video for Rami Malek and the actor, too, equally found the video to be cringe-worthy and hilarious.

The star went up on stage to collect the prize for his Freddie Mercury biopic, and admitted he was nervous so turned to his friend who simply didn't see him.

It was a big night at the Golden Globes for the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. The tracks include Queen's "We Will Rock You", "We Are the Champions", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Another One Bites the Dust", and the title song.

Queen fans and audience members didn't agree with this assessment and watched the movie in droves anyway, earning it £583 million at the worldwide box office.

Shortly after his big win, Malek was overjoyed, talking backstage to ET's Nancy O'Dell, and joking that he didn't "remember a single word" from his speech. The film's director, Bryan Singer, is mired in controversy. This was only the latest in a long series of controversies for Singer, who has faced lawsuits for alleged sexual assault. Singer's departure caused the London production to temporarily shut down until Dexter Fletcher took over the rest of the shoot, but Singer still received a directing credit.

This is the first time Malek has won a Golden Globe, having been nominated two other times in previous year. Not exactly a great look for Hollywood or the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and it has people wondering how they go about voting. "She is so down to Earth and so cool", the Golden Globe victor said.
