Bohemian Rhapsody, the hit Queen biopic starring Rami Malek as the group’s iconic frontman Freddie Mercury, won best picture in the drama category at the 2019 Golden Globes on Sunday night (January 6th).

The win was the Bryan Singer-directed film’s second achievement of the night seeing that Malek also picked up the award for best performance in a motion picture over the other music-themed nominee in the category, A Star Is Born, which ended up getting shut out in all major categories except for best original song, “Shallow,” written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

The big night at the awards ceremony’s 76th edition is just the latest accomplishment for Bohemian Rhapsody, which has already grossed nearly $200 million in the U.S. alone, becoming the highest-grossing musical biopic film ever released. It also spawned a soundtrack that hit #3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. For a taste of the movie, check out the trailer below.
