Oscars 2019: Rami Malek wins best actor award for 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Updated : February 26, 2019 06:53 AM IST

Malek, receiving the best actor trophy Sunday for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, called it a "monumental moment." He thanked members of the band in attendance.
He lauded "Bohemian Rhapsody" for telling the story of a gay man and an immigrant who lived his life as "unapologetically himself." Mercury, who was born in Zanzibar to parents from India, moved to England with his family as a teenager.
Malek noted that he himself is the son of immigrants, from Egypt, and a first-generation American. He gave a shout-out to his mother — "I love you, lady" — and regretted that his father was not alive.
