Along with the film's expansion to 1,300 theaters in the USA and Canada on January 11, 2019, this is 20th Century Fox's biggest domestic push for Bohemian Rhapsody, which exceeded box office expectations in the States but is nowhere near the worldwide frenzy for the film.

He said: "And finally to Freddie Mercury, thank you for showing us the power of embracing your true self".

Nicole Kidman and Rami Malek at the 76th Annual Golden Globes on January 6 2019.

The actor won for his celebrated portrayal of "Queen" frontman Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody.' The award was presented to Malek by Richard Gere and Julianne Moore. Freddie Mercury and Queen did that so successfully through their music and that's what we always wanted to accomplish in the cinemas.

He went on to thank Queen's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor for ensuring that "authenticity and inclusivity exist in music and in the world and all of us".

With other high-profile scalps already taken in the #TimesUp era, many - including Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood - were left wondering why Singer seemed to be exempt.

Rami Malek has joked that footage of Nicole Kidman appearing to blank him onstage at the Golden Globes is "haunting him on the Internet".

It was Gaga's second Globe win: In 2016, she won best actress in a miniseries or motion picture made for television for her role in FX's "American Horror Story: Hotel".

"I love you, you attractive man". "So, I thought I could easily go up and say, 'Hi, ' but in a moment like that ..."

'This is for and because of you, gorgeous'. "Golden Globe winner" is a pretty advantageous bragging point.

The award came 49 years after he received his first Golden Globe nomination for best male newcomer.

Netflix took home several awards for the Kominsky Method. The gala at the Beverly Hilton also recognized Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma," a cinematic ode to his childhood in 1970s Mexico City, with best director and foreign film honors, while seven movies bagged one statuette each.

Christian Bale was also rewarded for his role as former vice president Dick Cheney in Vice - which scooped him best actor (comedy or musical).
