The 25th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards premiered on Sunday, January 27, 2019. Bohemian Rhapsody was one of the front-runners of the awards show. Rami Malek won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury.

When Malek came up to the stage, he decided to dedicate his award to the late Freddie Mercury. He shared, “I thank Queen and Freddie Mercury…I get some power from him that is about stepping up and living your best life, being exactly who you want to be, and accomplishing everything you so desire. And I feel that and he allows us all to feel that, so this is, again, for him. Thank you very much.”
