A film about the band Queen won two awards "Golden globe"

Rami Malek triumphed as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody

Washington D.C., Jan 7: Rami Malek, who won big at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, delivered a heart moving speech and heaped praise on late singer Freddie Mercury whom he portrayed in the film 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

As Malek reached out to thank Kidman for the award, she promptly turned her back on him and very much left him hanging.

"Oh my God. I just don't believe it", a tearful Close said of her win, before issuing a rallying cry to women to seek fulfillment in their careers.

Spectators in the United Kingdom who witnessed the performance shared clips on social media saying that it's a brilliant way to honor Freddie and Queen. "But in a moment like that, it was very awkward. I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet".

Jimmy Kimmel agreed: "This is going to be around for a little while".

The star, clearly unaware of the moment's virality, correctly guessed that it was being spread online.

Rami Malek and Nicole Kidman were on the stage while Bohemian Rhapsody director was giving his victor speech.

Rami Malek's portrayal of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury had been praised for its true-to-life representation of the man whose astounding vocal range and larger-than-life stage presence continues to define a musical era.

"I love Nicole. I admire her and respect her". First, obviously, his spectacular performance in the film and second for having a super awkward moment with actress Nicole Kidman on stage.

The gala at the Beverly Hilton also recognized Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma", a cinematic ode to his childhood in 1970s Mexico City, with best director and foreign film honors, while seven movies bagged one statuette each.
