Last night brought in the glitz and glamour of the 76th Golden Globe Awards and the ceremony wasn’t without a few shock winners.
Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody was the surprise winner of two major prizes at Sunday’s awards – taking home the trophies for best film drama and best drama actor for leading man Rami Malek who played the late Freddie Mercury.
Malek did not pay tribute to Bryan Singer the original director of the film who was fired due to “unreliable behaviour” but did pay tribute to Queen in his acceptance speech.
“To you, Brian May, to you, Roger Taylor, for ensuring that authenticity remains in the world,” he said.
He also dedicated his award to Mercury, who died in 1991: “This is for and because of you, gorgeous!”
A Star Is Born only took home one award, best original song for Shallow, despite being heavily tipped for a huge night and being nominated for five prizes.
Greeen Book was the evening’s other big winner, scooping three prizes – best musical or comedy film, best screenplay and best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali.
Set in the 1960s and co-starring Viggo Mortensen, Green Book tells the story of an African-American musician who hires an Italian-American driver to take him on a tour of the Deep South.
