Rami Malek Reacts to His Very First Oscars Nomination!

Rami Malek has issued a statement in reaction to his very first nomination at the 2019 Academy Awards for his work in Bohemian Rhapsody.

The 37-year-old actor first told EW about how he found out about the news, saying, “I’m in Paris working, so I didn’t realize it was today, because I try never to ask anybody when these moments are. Then the telephone started fluttering away, and it’s a beautiful snowy day, so there’s something quite magical the way it’s happening. It’s just something you never expect to happen. It’s like a distant dream that actors have and hope for to some degree. But it’s never really felt in the realm of possibilities — it’s a pretty joyous occasion to say the least.”

He was then asked if he thought it could be possible that he’d get a nomination after winning the 2019 Golden Globe for his work in the movie.

Rami responded, “I guess at that point, you start to consider it. I’m always so thankful that I get to be a working actor. The percentage of people who get to do this is so small that getting accolades like this seems so distant always, whether you’ve received awards in the past or not. But I think perhaps after getting the Globe, it seemed more attainable — but there’s something about hearing the words that you’re an Oscar nominated actor that are still going to be incredibly shocking. It’s a profoundly humbling moment for me.”

    Love him, but that’s a bad dye job. Wish he would wear regular guy clothes like jeans and a tshit because he looks great in them. His clothing is too self conscious for me.
