Rami Malek And His Performance In Bohemian Rhapsody
The Mr.Robot fame is nominated for his incredible transformation of Freddie Mercury in this year’s blockbuster, Bohemian Rhapsody – He stars as Freddie Mercury, the leading singer of the band, ‘Queen’ in 20th century Fox hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody,”
The 2016 Golden globe honored Malek lead drama,“ Mr Robot” as the Best TV Drama Series. Unfortunately, the performance award is grabbed by Christian Slater as the Best TV Supporting Actor.
Moreover, Jon Hamm won the Best TV Drama Actor for the final season of “Mad Men” in 2016. Rami Malek instead received his Emmy and Critics’ Choice Awards for the show. Now again the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has nominated him for Best Film Drama Actor for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Other nominees for the same category are Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born), Willem Dafoe (At Eternity’s Gate), Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased) and John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman).
Why Rami Malek Will Win The Golden Globes 2019 Award
In fact, there is a huge chance for Rami Malek to win the Golden Globe title 2019. The reasons are multiple.
Primarily, his outstanding performance, as well as the exact demonstration of Queens frontman Mercury, made him the most promising nominee of the award.
While talking to news.co.au, Malek told that he had watched Mercury’s 1985 Live Aid performance more than 1,500 times to bring life in the role. Moreover, the ardent actor took the recording on the sets to deliver the picture perfect show of Freddie Mercury’s attire.
“That’s something we tried to get move for move, even just gesture for gesture perfectly. It felt like I had it in my bones and I didn’t want to keep going back to it. It felt like sometimes you would lose a little bit of the authenticity if you tried to nail it so perfectly”.
To another surprise, 20th Century Fox presented the film as a drama instead of a well-tuned musical. Hence it becomes tougher for Malek to compete for Best Film Drama Actor. He has to compete many big names like Bradley Cooper (“A Star is Born”), Ryan Gosling (“First Man“), and Willem Dafoe (“At Eternity’s Gate”).
The Predictions Signalled Rami Malek -The Fortunate
Secondly, “A Star is Born” is more prone to attract the Golden Globes. Lucky for Malek, according to the combined predictions of Gold Derby users, the movie is more diverted towards Best Film Drama and Best Film Drama Actress (Lady Gaga) award. Next, Bradley Cooper has fallen behind in the prediction chart for Best Film Drama Actor. Therefore, it seems that Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody“) has the optimum chance to luck out.
Next, not only over one thousand gold Derby users, but 8 out of 16 professional journalists voted for Rami. The journalist includes Erik Davis (Fandango), Tariq Khan (Fox TV), Bonnie Fuller (Hollywood Life), Michael Musto (NewNowNext), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby)and Jack Mathews (Gold Derby) render positive condone for Malek.
