Bohemian Rhapsody scoops Golden Globe nominations.
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody film has been nominated in two categories for 2019’s prestigious Golden Globes Awards. Already acknowledged as the biggest-selling music biopic of all time, the film is in the running to win the Best Motion Picture – Drama category, while its star, the 37-year-old Rami Malek, is shortlisted for Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture – Drama.
Queen guitarist Brian May believes that Ramek’s performance as Freddie Mercury is deserving of an Oscar nomination, but in the Golden Globes he’s up against Bradley
Cooper (A Star Is Born), Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s Gate), Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased) and John David Washington (BlackKKKlansman); while Bohemian Rhapsody goes head-to-head with Black Panther, BlacKKKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk and A Star Is Born. The winners will be announced on January 6.
