It’s fair to say that not every critic enjoyed Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. Actually, we’re not sure any critic did, at least, not any we’ve read.
But audiences loved it and so did the people who give out awards and Oscars night was no different, Rami Malek winning best actor for his undoubtedly impressive performance as Freddie Mercury.
And here are our 4 favourite things about his (at one time, very unlikely looking) win, beginning with …
1. His bow tie
People tried really, really hard to straighten the actor’s bow tie.

And yet …
2. His speech

4. His champagne moment

Oh, and this comment also deserves a nomination.
Wellll….I’m happy Rami Malek identified Bohemian Rhapsody as a movie about a gay man. I wish someone had told the screenwriters.

And let’s hope he’s okay after this happened (we’re sure he’s okay).
