'Bohemian Rhapsody' has won in all of the categories that they were nominated for except for Best Picture, which went to 'Green Book'.

Rami Malek who portrays as Freddie Mercury has won the Best Actor category.

"Thank you, Queen. Thank you guys for allowing me to be the tiniest part of your phenomenal extraordinary legacy. I am forever in your debt," Malek says.

"I am the son of immigrants from Egypt, a first-generation American. And part of my story is being written right now. And I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you, and everyone who believed in me for this moment. It's something I will treasure for the rest of my life."

"Massive shout-out to Brian May and Roger Taylor," Paul Massey adds while accepting the Best Sound Mixing award with Tim Cavagin and John Casali. "Thank you so much for your music and your collaboration and your support."
