The accolades have continued to pour in for Bohemian Rhapsody, with the acclaimed biopic scoring two big awards at this year’s Golden Globes.
Released back in October, Bohemian Rhapsody is a Bryan Singer and Dexter Fletcher-directed biopic that tells the story of English rock band Queen and its charismatic frontman Freddie Mercury. Despite a somewhat measured critical response, audiences have been loving the film, and clearly voting with their feet.
Just last month, it was revealed that the film had become the highest-grossing musical biopic of all time, grossing upwards of $700 million to date, and beating out the likes of the 2015’s Straight Outta Compton and 2005’s Walk The Line.
As Pitchfork now reports, the film has scored itself another huge honour, taking home the awards for Best Drama and Best Actor at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.
Handed out at The Beverly Hilton on Sunday night, Bohemian Rhapsody managed to overtake other films such as Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk, and the successful A Star Is Born to take home the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama.
Likewise, Rami Malek’s stunning portrayal of Freddie Mercury was enough for the panel to award him he Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. Malek’s role saw him beat out actors such as Bradley Cooper, John David Washington, Lucas Hedges, and Willem Dafoe to take home the honour.
