Malek was unstoppable this awards season and the favorite to take home Oscar gold. He previously won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award, the BAFTA and the Golden Globe award, among countless other precursors, all for his stellar portrayal of Freddie Mercury.

He acknowledged that he will treasure this moment for the rest of his life. Malek also praised his girlfriend, actress Lucy Boynton, for being the "heart" of the film.
