More success for Bohemian Rhapsody as film receives 7 BAFTA nominations

A few hours after Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Picture at the Golden Globes, the Band of the Grenadier Guards at Buckingham Palace treated spectators with the song that is said to be the 'most streamed' song of the 20th century; Bohemian Rhapsody.

But when Malek went up to thank the Aussie actress for the award, she turned her back on him and left him hanging.

The 37-year-old actor relived the moment during an interview onJimmy Kimmel Live, and he explained that his relationship with Nicole is far more friendly in real life than it appeared in the clip. The conclusion at the time was that Hollywood just wasn't ready to award a gay love story, instead opting for more conservative, but exceedingly tone-deaf material - a lot like this year's Green Book, 2012's The Help or 2009's The Blind Side.

"I will take this one", Malek said, stepping up to the microphone. "I feel like this is probably haunting me on the internet right now".

That being said, the Globes has often seen many of its winners go on to win at the Academy Awards so while many people in the industry might think Bohemian Rhapsody's success is an anomaly they could be proven wrong when the Oscar nominations come about.

This is the awkward moment Rami was snubbed at the Golden Globes.

In the video of the incident, which has since gone viral, Malek was seen moving to greet Kidman, who had presented the award.

Adored by fans but largely panned by critics, Bohemian Rhapsody pulled off a surprise upset Sunday night, overcoming favorite A Star Is Born to win the nod, while the race-relations comedy Green Book netted the prize for best motion picture-comedy or musical.

The star, clearly unaware of the moment's virality, correctly guessed that it was being spread online.

Co-host Sandra Oh, who was born in Canada of Asian descent, paid tribute to the slew of Golden Globe-nominated films and TV shows featuring black and Asian actors and directors, including "Crazy Rich Asians", "Black Panther", and "BlacKkKlansman".

As fans chimed in to "like" the photo and express their love of the movie as well, one cheeky woman wrote, "Sir Rod - when do we get a film about you?"
