Bohemian Rhapsody has scored high at the box office as a worldwide hit as the most successful musical biopic, and it scored even higher after it landed the award for "Best Motion Picture - Drama" and Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury for "Best Actor in a Motion Picture."

"My heart is pounding out of my chest right now," Rami Malek said in his acceptance speech. "This is a profound honor to receive this, and to be counted among such extraordinary actors. I have to thank everyone who worked so tirelessly to make this film what it is. And of course, to Queen. To you, Brian May, to you, Roger Taylor, for ensuring that authenticity and inclusiveness exists in the music and in the world and in all of us. Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me this job of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man!”

Queen guitarist Brian May was also overjoyed with Bohemian Rhapsody's dual victories, as he shared much of the night's excitement on his Instagram page.
