Rami Malek Has Been Nominated For Golden Globe Award For His Role In ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Every day, we move closer to the Golden Globe Awards ceremony and we couldn’t be more excited about it. So many nominations, so many opportunities. Just recently, Rami Malek received a Golden Globe nomination for his role of Freddie Mercury in this year’s greatest, Bohemian Rhapsody.

I am sure we have ALL heard the song before. Even if you don’t listen to Queen, you are bound to have heard this one before. Whether you’ve blasted it 12 times in a row, or just listened to it for the sole sake of listening to it, you can’t deny that it is one of the greatest of all times.

First things first, the movie, too, has received a Golden Globe nomination for the Best Motion Picture (Drama) but the real deal all comes down to Malek’s amazing performance. When interviewed by news.co.au, Malek explained how he was able to pull the perfect Mercury. Malek admitted to having watched the scene over 1,500 times just to get it right. And that’s not all. He also had the recording of the scene while on the set.

Malek said:

That’s something we tried to get move for move, even just gesture for gesture perfectly. It felt like I had it in my bones and I didn’t want to keep going back to it. It felt like sometimes you would lose a little bit of the authenticity if you tried to nail it so perfectly.

Then he added:

Things won’t exactly always match up, there might be a hint of something that’s off, but I think that kept it feeling really alive and in the moment and it was better to sacrifice it that way, but yeah, I was watching it non-stop.

Everyone, including Brian May, had only good words and praise for the movie.

I am often struck with the desire to step off my career track and go live in a faraway small cabin that overlooks the city.
