Golden Globes 2019: Rami Malek, Winner of Bohemian Rhapsody, Snubbed by Presenter Nicole Kidman–Really?

At Sunday’s Golden Globes, Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek won big, Best Actor (Drama) and then his film won Best Picture–despite predictions that it would be A Star Is Born.

But he also made headlines for getting snubbed onstage by actress Nicole Kidman, who presented the top award.

Malek,  37, appeared on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he was shown the clip that went viral of that awakward moment.

“I had not seen that,” Malek said.

Despite the apparent snub, Malek insisted he thought approaching Kidman would be a totally natural move.

“I’ve known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video,” he said, laughing. “So I thought I could easily go up and say hi. But in a moment like that, it was very awkward. I have a feeling it was probably haunting me on the Internet.”

The clip did, in fact, go viral shortly after the show. But Malek wasn’t deterred by the moment. In fact, he got the chance to speak with someone very important to Kidman at the show.

“I got love from Keith Urban that night, her husband. He’s a massive Queen fan,” Malek said.  Many stars came up to him and the band members of Queen, who also attended the annual awards show.

Malek was overjoyed with the win since many industry members thought the award would go to Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born.

He later joked that he didn’t remember “a single word” from his speech.
