More success for Bohemian Rhapsody as film receives 7 BAFTA nominations

  • Actor Rami Malek

Malek and producer Graham King, who accepted the film's Best Picture award, didn't mention Singer in their acceptance speeches, and any reference to the director appeared to be intentionally avoided by the rest of Bohemian Rhapsody's cast and crew throughout the Golden Globes.

The majority of critics felt the movie was all over the place and did a disservice to the memory of Freddie Mercury. "He's a massive Queen fan".

"Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime".

Now the film is celebrating again after being nominated for seven BAFTA awards.

However, it's not just because the film was the least critically-acclaimed in the category that people had issues with it winning. He was replaced by Dexter Fletcher, but was credited for the film because of union rules, reported the Guardian. Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press and everyone involved with Bohemian Rhapsody might have been ignoring Singer's attachment to the film, but Singer wasn't.


"I had not seen that", an embarrassed Malek said through his hands.

The movie awards season hit top gear yesterday when the Golden Globes, the entree to the Oscars, were awarded in Beverly Hills. Yet here we are, still pretending that Bryan Singer doesn't have years of credible allegations of horrific sexual assaults and abuses of power stacked up against him.

"I don't think it goes close to being the best film for the year", Quinn told Kate and Quarters this morning.

Having said that, congratulations to Rami Malek.
