Bafta Best Actor Goes to Rami Malek.  It was for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody

Rami Malek couldn’t believe he had won the award.  He was up against some tough competition but he clinched the major prize.

Malek played the star role in Bohemian Rhapsody and put his heart and soul into it.  It was a superb performance.  The star perfected the singer Mercury who died of HIV Aids at the peak of his career.

The film also won best sound.

Malek said as he collected his Bafta: “You Brits do music well, it’s not lost on me how sacred your musical heritage is. Thank you to the greatest outsider of them all, Freddie Mercury.”

One person who wasn’t recognised among the winners was the film’s director Bryan Singer.

His name was removed from the film’s Bafta nomination due to allegations he sexually abused under-age boys.

Have you seen the movie?  It is fantastic.  One of the best musical films around. Rami Malek’s is outstanding.
