RAMI MALEK ‑ “BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY”
RAMI MALEK: Oh, my God. Oh, I am beyond moved. I am beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of my chest right now. This is a profound honor to receive this and to be counted among such extraordinary actors. I am privileged to be counted among you, truly, and to be in the movement with all of you. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this incredible recognition. I have to thank everyone who worked so tirelessly to make this film what it is and, in the process, gave me this incredible family, this ensemble of actors, wherever the hell you are right now, celebrating. I am going to tackle you in a moment. I’m going to jump all over you guys. I have to thank ‑‑ I have to thank Graham King and Denis O’Sullivan. You’ve worked over a decade to ensure that this story was told. Thank you, man. Thank you. Thank you to Fox, 20th Century Fox, New Regency. You guys, you believed in us when so few would, and I appreciate that so much. Wow. I’ve got to thank my mom and my family. I’ve got to thank Doug Lucterhand, Cynthia Pett, Annabel Gualazzi, Ben Curtis, Marissa Martins, and Michele Margolis for all of this. And, of course, to Queen. To you, Brian May. To you, Roger Taylor, for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and in all of us. Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you, gorgeous.
