More success for Bohemian Rhapsody as film receives 7 BAFTA nominations

More success for Bohemian Rhapsody as film receives 7 BAFTA nominations”

The film picked up the award for Best Motion Picture - Drama at the ceremony at the city's Beverly Hilton, while actor Rami Malek - who portrays frontman Freddie Mercury - got the nod for Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture - Drama.

But he went on to laugh and explain that he has in fact known Kidman for "many years".

Malek was shown the viral clip during an appearance on Tuesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! on US TV and he appeared to find the amusing side of what looked like a rather embarrassing moment.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Malek visibly cringed as he watched a clip of the moment.

"I have a feeling this is haunting me on the Internet right now", he said. "I got love from Keith [Urban] that night, her husband", he explained, calling the country star a "massive Queen fan".

BlacKkKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk, Black Panther and A Star is Born were some of the best-rated movies of the year, considered so by critics and audience members alike, and were nominees in the category but the same can't be said for Bohemian Rhapsody, and that's where the controversy lies.

The actor received a BAFTA nomination for his role on Wednesday. "I could be a bit more naughty than I was, without getting too irreverent or too scandalous".

The award-winning film is packed with Queen and Freddie Mercury tunes as it tells the story of the front-man's incredible life, set to a soundtrack of chart hits. "To you Brian May, to you Roger Taylor for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and all of us". "This is for and because of you gorgeous", Malek concluded.
