‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Pulls Major Surprises At The Golden Globes Award

“Bohemian Rhapsody” pulled a major upset at the close of the Golden Globes on Sunday, taking home the final two top prizes to put itself into the Oscars conversation along with “Green Book” and “Roma.”
“Bohemian Rhapsody” — which charts the rise of British rock group Queen — picked up best actor for Rami Malek, who plays legendary frontman Freddie Mercury. It also bagged the biggest movie award of the night — best drama. “I am beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of my chest right now,” said Malek, whose list of people to thank included the Queen singer, who died in 1991. “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.” The two trophies were the final prizes in a ceremony that had been expected to be a consecration for “A Star is Born” — starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the age-old Hollywood fable of an ailing performer and his muse — which went into the night with five nods. “Star” had to content itself with a statuette for best song, which went to Gaga and writing partner Mark Ronson, while Christian Bale — who plays Cheney — picked up the solo gong for “Vice.” Civil rights dramedy “Green Book” was the numerical winner — if not the prestige player — picking up awards for best comedy movie, best supporting actor Mahershala Ali and best screenplay. The boozy gala at the Beverly Hilton also recognized Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” a cinematic ode to his childhood in 1970s Mexico City, with best director and foreign film honors, while seven movies bagged one statuette each. “Cinema at its best builds bridges to other cultures,” Cuaron told the audience. “We need to understand how much we have in common.”
