Oscars: Rami Malek wins Best Actor Award for “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Los Angeles, Feb 25: Rami Malek won the Best Actor Award for music biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, or the Oscars, held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood in the western US city of Los Angeles.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic of British rock act Queen, with a focus on its lead singer, Mercury, who died in 1991 from Aids-related illness. Malek defeated a strong field, including Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Vice and Bradley Cooper as musician Jack Maine in A Star Is Born.

Malek was the favourite to win, however, having previously picked up a string of awards for the role including best actor from the Baftas and Screen Actors Guild and best actor (drama) at the Golden Globes.UNI
