Rami Malek praised British “musical heritage” as he picked up the Best
Leading Actor gong at the EE British Academy Film Awards.
The ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ star – who triumphed at the awards ceremony
for his role as Freddie Mercury in the movie – thanked the Queen star
for his contribution to music as he spoke to the audience gathered at
London’s Royal Albert Hall on Sunday night (10.02.19).
Speaking as he collected the award, he said: “I still cannot believe
that I’m included with this group of actors. It’s quite difficult
entering your [British] world with this role, as an outsider. It’s not
lost on me how sacred your musical heritage is.”
Rami will hoping to continue his good awards season at the Academy
Awards later this month, where he is nominated in the Actor in a
Leading Role category.
The 37-year-old actor – who has already picked up a Golden Globe and a
SAG Award this year – said: “I guess at that point, you start to
consider it. I’m always so thankful that I get to be a working actor.
The percentage of people who get to do this is so small that getting
accolades like this seems so distant always, whether you’ve received
awards in the past or not. But I think perhaps after getting the
Globe, it seemed more attainable — but there’s something about
hearing the words that you’re an Oscar nominated actor that are still
going to be incredibly shocking. It’s a profoundly humbling moment for
me.”
