It was just over a week ago that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ stole the show at the Oscars taking home four Academy Awards for ‘Film Editing’, ‘Sound Editing’, ‘Sound Mixing’, and ‘Best Actor’ awarded to Rami Malek for his stunning portrayal of Freddie Mercury. What’s even more is that Queen kicked off the entire ceremony in grand fashion with an epic performance.
This was the perfect way to cap off the award season for Queen. Their film not only did well at the Oscars, but at the Golden Globes as well. And on top of that, the film, as of today, has earned a whopping $868.7 million, making it the highest grossing music biopic in history. Needless to say, this film is a winner.
With all of that said, guitarist Brian May admits that he had some mixed feeling after the Oscars. Surprisingly, once the Oscars were over with, Brian went sorta quiet on Instagram, a platform he is very active on.
Finally, just two days ago, Brian broke his silence and gave an explanation that revealed his mixed feelings about the whole affair. Here is his Instagram post…
I’ll ask you now, do you folks agree with what Brian is saying here? Where do you stand on this?
Either way, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ proved to be a massive critical and financial success. With Oscar wins, Golden Globe wins, an actor catapulted to an A-Lister, and almost a billion dollars in the box office, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is a sure winner.
