LOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — “Bohemian Rhapsody” on Sunday pulled a major upset at the Golden Globes, walking away with two top prizes — best drama film and best actor for Rami Malek, who plays Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the biopic about the iconic band.

The film bested early favorite “A Star Is Born,” box office superhero hit “Black Panther,” Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

In the best actor category, Malek triumphed over Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Willem Dafoe (“At Eternity’s Gate”), Lucas Hedges (“Boy Erased”) and John David Washington in “BlacKkKlansman.”
