Golden Globes 2019: 'Bohemian Rhapsody’ & Rami Malek Win Major Categories
But that wasn't the only win for one of 2018's most anticipated films and the highest-grossing music biopics of all time: Rami Malek, who portrays legendary frontman Freddie Mercury, won Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Drama. The actor thanked the band during his acceptance speech.
"And of course [thanks to] Queen. To you, Brian May, to you, Roger Taylor, for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and in all of us," Malek said. "Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you, gorgeous."
The Globes, which celebrates and recognizes film and television domestically, as well as internationally, also honors music in film through categories, including Best Original Song.
The 2019 Best Original Song award went to Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt for "Shallow," which they wrote for A Star Is Born. Dumplin's "Girl In The Movies" by Dolly Parton and Linda Perry and "All The Stars" (performed by Kendrick Lamar and SZA) from the Black Panther soundtrack were among the nominees.
Best Original Score went to GRAMMY-winning composer Justin Hurwitz for First Man, the film adaptation of astronaut Neil Armstrong's life. Huriwitz won Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
