AceShowbiz - "Bohemian Rhapsody" cast and crew can now declare themselves a champion. The biopic about Queen's frontman Freddie Mercury was a big winner at the recently concluded 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards with a total of two prizes.
The movie beat out heavily favored "A Star Is Born" as Best Motion Picture - Drama in a show full of surprises. Its lead star Rami Malek additionally edged out "A Star Is Born" star Bradley Cooper for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama title.
Meanwhile, Cooper's co-star Lady GaGa lost the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama trophy to Glenn Close for her portrayal of Joan Castleman in "The Wife". The 71-year-old actress herself was completely stunned by her win, freezing for a few seconds on her seat after she was announced as the winner.
