Thrilled to learn today that Rami Malek has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the Bohemian Rhapsody movie.

The movie is now the highest-earning music biopic of all time - and still earning.

I’ve seen it twice and will probably go once more before New Year’s.

Two things blew my mind. 

1. Rami Malek was so believable as Freddie Mercury, you would literally forget that you weren’t watching Freddie himself.

2. The costumes worn by everyone in the film were so authentic, you remembered seeing the band wearing them in live footage and photographs you’ve seen so many times over the years. 

In my opinion, Rami Malek and costume designer Julian Day both deserve Oscar Awards for their work on this film.

I rest my case with photos of Queen’s actual costumes. SEE THEM HERE
