Rami Malek undoubtedly had a great night at the Golden Globes last weekend, scooping the award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as the movie winning Best Motion Picture – Drama.

But his incredible awards were slightly overshadowed when he was blanked on stage by Nicole Kidman as she presented the cast with the award.

Jimmy Kimmel showed Rami the exact moment on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (January 8), causing him to hold his head in his hands.

“I had not seen that,” the 37-year-old told the host.

“I’ve known her for many years, despite what it may seem in that video, so I thought I could easily go up and say hi but in a moment like that… it was very awkward.

“I have a feel this is probably haunting me on the internet now. It’s alright, I got love from Keith [Urban, her husband] that night. He’s a massive Queen fan.”

And after getting some love from Keith, Rami added that he didn’t let the awkward moment get him down too much as the cast and crew also headed out to celebrate.

“We had an incredible party. The band, that crew, we have become so tight,” he said.

Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor attended the awards show alongside Rami and the rest of the cast.

“I don’t know that it was so fun for them,” the Mr Robot star said. “It wasn’t necessarily their scene. I think they wanted to enjoy it, it was an exceptional night for everyone. But they are rock stars and they are used to doing rock star things and that was a very Hollywood industry night.

“I had a blast, they had a great time but I think at first it took some getting used to.”
