Golden Globe Awards: Queen film Bohemian Rhapsody wins top honor

Bohemian Rhapsody was so-so movie

"Bohemian Rhapsody", about the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, bested another movie surrounded by music, the favorite "A Star is Born", to win best picture, drama and best actor in a drama for Rami Malek.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's film A Star Is Born didn't win Best Film (Drama) at the 2019 Golden Globes and fans are not happy.

In the acceptance speech for Best Drama Movie, executive producer Graham King made a special call-out to Malek for his "unbelievable" performance. "Thank you to Satan for giving me the inspiration on how to play this role", he joked.

Malek added: "I love you, you handsome man. This is for you, and because of you, gorgeous", Malek said.

FYI: Rami is wearing Givenchy with a Cartier watch and cufflinks.

Golden Globes co-host Sandra Oh said she was afraid to take the job of co-hosting this year's show with Andy Samberg, but she took it anyway.

Best drama series went to the acclaimed FX Cold War spy thriller The Americans - its first Golden Globe for its sixth and final season.

John Legend described as a ‘hero’ for participating in Surviving R Kelly
Joann, his eldest, was born in 1998; Jay, born Jaya, was born in 2000; and his youngest, Robert Jr., was born in 2002. Kelly's former backup singer, Jovante Cunningham , talked about meeting Aaliyah when she was just 12-years-old.

But for a movie that didn't exactly have the critics swooning - and was in a category with A Star Is Born and If Beale Street Could Talk - its win was quite an achievement.

There were deserved wins for Mahershala Ali for Green Book, a true story of race in America in the 1960s, and that film was the night's biggest victor. Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic about Freddie Mercury and British rock band Queen.

"We have to say, I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that", the 71-year-old said, to huge applause from the gathering of A-list stars.

He added cryptically: "I'm keeping tight-lipped". "I am privileged to be counted among you".

There are also the Comedy/Musical films to consider for Oscar competition.

Christian Bale picked up the award for best actor in a comedy or musical for his portrayal of former US Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice.
