    I finally got around to seeing Bohemian Rhapsody, the biopic about Freddy Mercury and Queen. I thought it was well-done, there are many ways a film like this could have gone south. Excellent work from Rami Malek, he won the Best Actor Golden Globe and the Oscar nomination for Best Actor for this role.

    An interesting aside is that I did not recognize Mike Myers in the film, playing Ray Foster, an EMI record executive.

    I don't follow bio on recording artists much, but was very sad the day little Freddie Mercury left us. His talent and voice were amazing. I've hesitated seeing this film because I know how it ends. I just wish he were still with us-

    "'It was not pleasant': Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek finally opens up about
    working with director Bryan Singer before he was removed from the film - and
    hints that he believes the sex abuse allegations against him."

    "Rami Malek has finally spoken out against Bryan Singer, more than a week after
    new sexual abuse allegations against the Hollywood director came to light.
    The Bohemian Rhapsody star showed his support for Singer's alleged victims and
    opened up about his own experience on the set of the Freddie Mercury biopic."

    And now Rami Malek has won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role as Freddie Mercury.

    Well-deserved.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more fine performances in future from this bright new star.

    Buy his music. As long as we remember him, he'll always be with us.
