Bohemian Rhapsody & Green Book win big at Golden Globes


Bohemian Rhapsody was the surprise winner of two major prizes at yesterday’s Golden Globe Awards.

The Freddie Mercury biopic took home the trophies for best film drama as well as best drama actor for Rami Malek, who played the late frontman.

Despite being heavily favoured and nominated for five prizes, A Star Is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, took home just one award – best original song for Shallow.

The night’s other big film winner was Green Book which claimed three prizes: best musical or comedy film, best screenplay and best supporting actor for Mahershala Ali.

Set in the 1960s, Green Book tells the story of an African-American musician who hires an Italian-American driver to take him on a tour of the Deep South.

These Golden Globes victories now mark it out as one of the favourites for next month’s Oscars.
