At the Golden Globes 2019, "Bohemian Rhapsody", with the star play Queen Frontman Freddie Mercury, has been awarded the Top Globe for Best Movie Drama. Leading actor Rami Malek has been voted the best drama actor. This was announced by the Association of Foreign Press on Monday night in Beverly Hills.
In the comedy division won the biopic "Green Book" on racism in the United States, which received even more prizes: As the best supporter Mahershala Ali won his first Golden Globe trophy. In the cinema he plays a black jazz pianist who travels in the 1960s with his white driver (played by Viggo Mortensen) through the southern states of the United States. Also the prize for the best manuscript went to "Green Book".
71-year-old Hollywood veteran Glenn Close won his third overall Golden Globe for best actress in the movie drama "The Wife." Among others, she was with her colleague Lady Gaga ("A Star Is Born"), who had to deal with a world for the best song. The association of the foreign press honored the song "Shallow" in her film. Lady Gaga shares the award with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
Her British colleague, Olivia Colman, took home a Best Actress in the Comedy / Musical category. She plays in tragicomedy "The Favorite – intrigue and lunacy" by Yorgos Lanthimos, the British Queen Anne in the early 18th century. The men also won a British: Christian Bale was honored for his role as former US vice president Dick Cheney in the political satire "Vice" with Globe as the best actor in a comedy.
German candidates were empty this time. Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, 45, by the artist's portrait "Werk ohne Autor", was the subject of the Mexican film "Rome" by Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón ("Gravity") in the category "Best Non-English Film". He also received the award for best director. Last year, the German NSU drama "Out of Nowhere" by Fatih Akin won the Golden Globe as the best foreign film.
Daniel Brühl also missed his second Globe opportunity. The 40-year-old was operating for his role in the television crime film "The Alienist", but the award went to Darren Criss ("The Assassination of Gianni Versace"). Brühl had previously been nominated in 2014 for his role as racing driver Niki Lauda in the Formula 1 drama "Rush – Everything for the win".
Awarded since the 1944 Golden Globe Awards are the most important movie prizes after the Oscar. The winners will be settled by a group of nearly 100 international journalists who have long been working in Hollywood. The award ceremony takes place traditionally during an informal gala dinner.
