British stars and the story of one of the UK’s biggest bands stole the show at this year’s Golden Globes.
Olivia Colman, Christian Bale, Richard Madden and Ben Whishaw were all winners, while Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Queen and Freddie Mercury, picked up two of the biggest gongs of the night – for best actor and best film in the drama category.
Accepting his award, Rami Malek, who plays the legendary frontman, said: “Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime.
This is for you, gorgeous.”It was something of an unexpected victory for the Queen biopic, which beat favourite A Star Is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, to the top award.
Glenn Close was also a surprise winner in the best drama actress category, with Lady Gaga having been tipped for success ahead of the ceremony.
