It's no coincidence that Rami Malek, who won Best Actor for playing Mercury, or the film's producers Jim Beach and Grahame King failed to thank or reference Singer in their acceptance speeches. "This is for you, gorgeous".
The Bohemian Rhapsody star surprisingly scooped best actor at the awards before moments later the film took top honours as best picture - drama.
To wit, "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Green Book" got a PR boost on Sunday, winning the night's top prizes and all but guaranteeing they'll become Best Picture nominees when the Oscar roster is unveiled on January 22.
Having said that, congratulations to Rami Malek.
The other nominees were Bradley Cooper in "A Star Is Born", Willem Dafoe in "At Eternity's Gate", Lucas Hedges in "Boy Erased" and John David Washington in "BlaKkKlansmen". Oh took a moment to say the industry is changing, with nominees this year that include "Black Panther" and "Crazy Rich Asians".
