Both the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and actor Rami Malek have been nominated for Golden Globes. The movie got the nod in the Best Motion Picture – Drama category, and Malek as Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama.
Bohemian Rhapsody will be competing against Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, A Star is Born, and If Beale Street Could Talk. Malek is nominated alongside Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born), Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s Gate), Lucas Hedges (A Boy Erased) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman).
Although critical response to Bohemian Rhapsody was divided, overall Malek received high praise for his performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, and the film has been received extremely well by fans across the world. To date, it has grossed over $500 million worldwide, the most by far for any music biopic.
The Golden Globes air January 6, 2019 on NBC.
