If you’ve seen not seen Bohemian Rhapsody yet, why not? Even if you’re not the biggest Queen fan, Rami Malek’s performance as the band’s late frontman, Freddie Mercury, is pretty damn impressive!
And when I say pretty impressive, in case you’re not aware of all news Tinseltown-related, the film has been hotly-tipped to pick up a few Oscar nominations (Academy Award nominations are announced next month). Not to mention it’s now the highest grossing movie biopic.
Even the band’s legendary guitarist Brian May, has stated how he feels Malek deserves the Best Actor Award for his ‘incredible’ performance.
Speaking to UCR, May said:
He’s incredible! Without doubt he’ll be on the nominations list for an Oscar, and well deserved as well.
He inhabited Freddie to the point where we even started to think of him as Freddie. Really remarkable.
If you’ve seen the biopic, you’ll know how astonishingly accurate Malek was in his portrayal of Mercury – especially for the Live Aid reconstruction.
