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.

And that's when the awkwardness unfolded.

In addition to Malek's success, the 2018 film "Bohemian Rhapsody" also won the "Best Motion Picture - Drama" award, defeating "Black Panther", "BlacKKKlansman", "If Beale St Could Talk" and a "Star is Born".

"I had not seen that", an embarrassed Malek said through his hands. "I'm privileged to be counted among you". "This is for and because of you, gorgeous".

Sunday's Golden Globes saw the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, take home some of the night's biggest awards. The Academy is taking nominations for its awards until January 14.

Now the film is celebrating again after being nominated for seven BAFTA awards.

Its Golden Globes victories mark it out as one of the favourites for next month's Oscars.

Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press and everyone involved with Bohemian Rhapsody might have been ignoring Singer's attachment to the film, but Singer wasn't.

On Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he played the video for Rami Malek and the actor, too, equally found the video to be cringe-worthy and hilarious.

The 37-year-old, LA-born actor also paid tribute to the other members of Queen, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, who he sat with for the ceremony. "She is so down to Earth and so cool", the Golden Globe victor said.

In the past five years, the top acting awards at the Globes and the Oscars have matched three times. She thanked her Korean parents, who were seated in the audience, in an emotional acceptance speech.
