Rami Malek, the actor that played Freddie Mercury, was nominated for the Best Actor in a Motion Picture.

In a recent interview, Malek said, “ I’m very conscious of never wanting to mimic him.” He has constantly praised Mercury and had said that there can only be one Freddie Mercury.

      Malek has a very busy couple of years, from the success of Bohemian Rhapsody to his Emmy winning show “Mr. Robot.”  In that show, Malek is the protagonist; the first ever Egyptian protagonist in an American TV show.
