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.
