Rami Malek Wins Best Actor Oscar for his Role in Bohemian Rhapsody

Published

on

Proving all odds correct, Rami Malek has won the Oscar for best actor at the 91st Academy Awards, making him the first actor of an Egyptian descent to win the prestigious award, and we just can’t be more proud.

Malek won best actor for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, defeating along a very strong field, that included the nominees Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Vice and Bradley Cooper as musician Jack Maine in A Star Is Born.

The actor has just recently been awarded with best actor from the Baftas, and Screen Actors Guild and best actor (drama) at the Golden Globes.

Well deserved Malek, well deserved.

In his speech, Malek paid tribute to his parents, “I love you, lady”, Malek told his mother who was in the auditorium. He also expressed his belief that his father would be “looking down on me right now”.

“We’re longing for stories like this, I am the son of immigrants from Egypt. I’m a first-generation American, and part of my story is being written right now.” That couldn’t be said any better, we do long for success stories like Malek’s.

Let’s just take a moment and praise his elegance during the press room speech, one of the reporters highlighted the fact that many young Arabs are growing with the dream of becoming successful, and are looking up to their favorite Rami Malek, she then asked what he would say to them, and his answer in Arabic is just the cutest, nicest thing you will see.

The movie, which is written by Rawiah Ismail Abdallah, tells the story of a woman who takes care of her father. It follows her struggle in looking after him, especially that he suffers from Alzheimer and is at a severe stage, at which he can’t remember his own daughter. She does everything in her power to remind him of all the things they shared together.

“For a subtle approach to a relentless disease, for a portrait that at the moment reaches amazing maturity, not exempt from fine humor and an endearing character.” The credits for the movie said.

Also worth mentioning is that the movie was shot in only one day! Something that required too much work and planning, but the results were completely worth it.
