Bohemian Rhapsody, a box office hit despite mixed reviews from critics, had not been considered a top contender for Best Picture at February's Academy Awards.

Regardless of the awkward moment with Kidman, Malek had a pretty big night at the 2019 Golden Globes, with the actor taking home the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. On Monday tourists walking by watched on and recorded the special moment, with one video getting over 67,000 views on Twitter.

There was no escape from reality Tuesday for "Bohemian Rhapsody" star Rami Malek.

Of course, such a surprise means Oscars predictions may look a little more different now.

It's no coincidence that Rami Malek, who won Best Actor for playing Mercury, or the film's producers Jim Beach and Grahame King failed to thank or reference Singer in their acceptance speeches.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was left out of the squad to face Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night as a effect of a minor hamstring issue.

While nominations won't be announced until January 22, it's highly likely that Rami Malek, Bradley Cooper and Vice's Christian Bale will be contenders in the Best Actor category. Congratulations to the entire team on their Golden Globe win.

"Wow, if I told you that, I'd have to tell you so many things. This is for and because of you gorgeous".

The list of winners of the 76th Golden Globes Awards is already out.

Singer has always been a controversial figure in the movie industry with a history of disruptive on-set behaviour, including on Bohemian Rhapsody, from which he was sacked and was replaced by Dexter Fletcher who completed the shoot.

It remains to be seen whether Bohemian Rhapsody can repeat its success at next month's Oscars, but odds will surely have shortened on it being honoured there, too.
