  • Egyptian-American Rami Malek Wins Golden Globe

He was replaced by Dexter Fletcher but retains the directing credit on the film, which is based on the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

And that's when the awkwardness unfolded.

"We are delighted to give audiences the opportunity to see this outstanding Golden Globe-winning film featuring Rami Malek's awesome Golden Globe-winning performance in theaters all over the USA and Canada in both its original form and in a never-before-experienced "sing-along" version", said Chris Aronson, Fox's president of domestic distribution, in a statement.

As fans chimed in to "like" the photo and express their love of the movie as well, one cheeky woman wrote, "Sir Rod - when do we get a film about you?" "This is for and because of you, gorgeous".

Indeed, Bohemian Rhapsody feels more like an obituary than a biography at some points, often dealing in half-truths rather than providing context to a man who was notoriously private.

"Green Book", the inspirational true story about a budding friendship between an African-American pianist and a white bouncer on a tour of the Deep South in the early 1960s, won three Globes, including best picture in the musical/comedy category. Queen guitarist Brian May has jumped to defend the film's award success.

But it has been a box office hit and Malek's name will be now be in the mix come the Oscar nominations later this month.

It was a good night for Oh, who as well as co-hosting her first Golden Globe ceremony was named best television drama actress for BBC America thriller "Killing Eve".

Malek beat out Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born), Willem Dafoe (At Eternity's Gate), Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) in the "Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama" category for his portrayal of Mercury.

The Golden Globe Awards was hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andy Samberg and Killing Eve's Sandra Oh.

Malek ended his classy and humble acceptance speech by thanking Queen and then Mercury.
