‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ takes upset win at Netflix-dominated Golden Globes

Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhaspody" pulled a major upset, taking home two top prizes - best drama film and best actor for Rami Malek, who played the band's frontman Freddie Mercury. Trust me, it's real. "This is for and because of you".

Lady Gaga, whose role in Warner Bros "A Star is Born" was her first lead part after a successful music career, won best original song for "Shallow".

Mahershala Ali, who played renowned pianist Don Shirley in the film, took home the Golden Globe for best supporting actor.

After first winning a Golden Globe award in 2006 for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Grey's Anatomy", Sandra Oh is now the first actress of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes!

"Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime".

The Golden Globes are where Oprah Winfrey gave a rousing speech past year that sparked speculation she was running for president.

Last year, Oh and Samberg teamed up when they presented the Emmy Award for best director of a comedy, which went to Amy Sherman-Palladino of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

The awards Sunday were spread far and wide, with few movies or series winning a couple of times. This year, both attendees and the night's hosts - Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh - have signalled they're planning a more celebratory and less serious evening. "It's up there. You're the one who let us into the deep waters and truly made the song what it is with your devastatingly lovely performance as an actor and a singer". "I'm not fooling myself, next year could be different, it probably will be, but right now this moment is real".

For its sixth and final season, FX's "The Americans" took best drama series over shows like Amazon's conspiracy thriller "Homecoming" and Oh's own "Killing Eve".

Best actor in a television series - drama was awarded to Richard Madden for Netflix's Bodyguard, while best actor in a television series - musical or comedy was awarded to Michael Douglas for The Kominsky Method - also a Netflix property.

Christian Bale, who plays former United States vice president Dick Cheney in Vice, won best comedy/musical lead actor ahead of Green Book's Viggo Mortensen. The event was quite starry and here's a look at happened throughout the award show.

"I wanted to be here to look out at this audience and witness this moment of change", said Oh, tearing up and gazing at minority nominees in attendance.
