TRANSCRIPT by Jen Tunney
… And the Actor goes to Rami Malek. Four-time nominee. Rami Malek celebrates his first win. He’s also nominated tonight with the cast of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
“Right… Wow. This just seems extraordinary to me when I look at those actors I am nominated with truly I just never in my wildest dreams thought I could be in a category with these men and I’m so proud to be one of your peers and to celebrate my peers tonight and celebrated by them. It’s an honour. I’m taken aback by it. I have to thank SAG-AFTRA and wouldn’t be here without having that and my producers Graham King and Dennis O’Sullivan, Fox, New Regency and this ensemble that is so extraordinary to me – that carried me through every moment on this film. Thank you.
I have anecdotes about what it is to be an actor and delivering pizzas and stuff like that but I will spare you.
I’ll thank Queen and Freddie Mercury. I get some power from him that is about stepping up and living your best life. Being exactly who you want to be in accomplishing everything you so desire and I feel that and he allows us all to feel that. So this is again for him.
Thank you very much.”
