The Academy Awards ceremony 2019 was definitely one to watch! For the first time ever, the stage saw an Asian-American host who also won an award the same night by the way. Adam Samberg and Sandra Oh were not the only stars of the night. In what looks like a prophecy coming true, Rami Malek stole the show with a huge win for Bohemian Rhapsody.
Brian May’s Prophecy
The movie garnered attention worldwide, for Rami’s impeccable resemblance to the late, Freddie Mercury. It wasn’t just the actor’s appearance but also his demeanour on stage that wowed the audience. Ranging from taking piano and guitar lessons to training under a movement director, Rami has hit gold at the Golden Globes Awards 2019. The movie was even nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars this year.
Queen band member, Brian May was quoted saying, that Rami was incredible. He said that Malek, made it seem as though Freddie was back and walking among the living for a second time. Now that’s some honour!
The band member was all praises for the artist and reckoned that he deserves an award for his efforts. Brian May, you just showed the whole world how true your judgments can be.
He’s incredible… without doubt he’ll be on the nominations list for an Oscar – and well deserved as well.Brian May on Rami Malek’s performance
Rami Malek’s win
Malek indeed went on to win an award for Best Performance by an Actor In A Motion Picture. The movie, Bohemian Rhapsody on the other hand won the award for Best Motion Picture-Drama.
A very blessed and grateful Rami took the mic with an emotional dedication to Queen and most importantly, Freddie Mercury. Like the 76th Golden Globes Awards, Oscar night 2019 too, was quite the tear-jerker for bandmates of Queen.
And of course, to Queen. To you, Brian May. To you, Roger Taylor. For ensuring, that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and in all of us. Thank you to Freddie Mercury, for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man! This is for and because of you gorgeous. Muah!Rami Malek
