CelebNMovies247.com has learned that Rami Malek, 37, had this to say on why he insisted he’s already content because the entire experience has been so rewarding.
Rami Malek explains:
I got help from Brian May and Roger Taylor throughout – I have to say – that’s a pretty and massive award for me. To have their acceptance, to be on a carpet tonight with them celebrating their dear friend and brother Freddie Mercury and their band.
This is something you only get once in a lifetime and I’m getting to live that. If I want anything more than that, I’m a punk.
In addition to his experience, Malek doesn’t think it’s fair that he has been singled out for Oscar nomination Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, and Joseph Mazzello performances.
I could have not done it without these other actors. The level of an ensemble here working together raised my game every day.
If you walk out there on stage playing Freddie Mercury and you’re not confident you might as well shut down the production. I just tried to fill those shoes as best as I could and honor and justice a human being that I consider revolutionary.’
