'I've known her many years despite what it may seem from that video, ' laughed Rami after he was shown the video for the first time.

But in an editorial that made Kate Stevenson's heart sing this morning - "Oh Karl, I lived for your column this morning" - The Age's national film editor, Karl Quinn says neither movies are particularly impressive films, and he doesn't expect either to win the Oscar.

The actor explained that, despite the awkward interaction, the two stars have actually been friends for years.

That being said, the Globes has often seen many of its winners go on to win at the Academy Awards so while many people in the industry might think Bohemian Rhapsody's success is an anomaly they could be proven wrong when the Oscar nominations come about. "I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet".

Luckily, Malek said he did get to talk to one person close to Kidman, who was also nominated, that night - her husband, Keith Urban.

Apparently, Nasukawa was flattered that McGregor wanted to fight him. "Yours sincerely The champ champ", he Tweeted. Yet another superfighter is interested in facing Tenshin Nasukawa, 20, of Tokyo, Japan.

Queen fans and audience members didn't agree with this assessment and watched the movie in droves anyway, earning it £583 million at the worldwide box office.

Bohemian Rhapsody, a box office hit despite mixed reviews from critics, had not been considered a top contender for Best Picture at February's Academy Awards.

Having said that, congratulations to Rami Malek. "I'm privileged to be counted among you".

The star was at the awards show with several members of the iconic band thanks to his now-award-winning portrayal of its departed frontman, Freddie Mercury. "To you Brian May, to you Roger Taylor for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and all of us". I love you, you handsome man.
