- Rami Malek was spotted tumbling off the stage at Oscars
- Later, he was spotted partying at Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball
- Rami Malek won the Best Actor Oscar for Bohemian Rhapsody
Rami Malek's Best Actor Oscar acceptance after winning for Bohemian Rhapsody ended somewhat disastrously - he tumbled right off the stage as he was coming off it and had to be helped up - pictures below. Rami dropped the precious Academy Award he had just been handed but seemed too be okay - although paramedics were called in to attend to the 37-year-old star, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. Luckily for Rami Malek, no bones were broken and no harm was done. We know because he was pictured opening a bottle of champagne after the Oscars at the Governor's Ball. Here's a look at Rami's fall:
And there was Rami Malek, right as rain, popping the bubbly later like nothing at all had happened:
Now, nobody really bats an eye when somebody trips over themselves at the Oscars. Because if it's not Jennifer Lawrence (Twice? Thrice maybe even), it's someone else. Twitter, however, wasn't going to let Rami Malek's Oscar blooper pass without comment.
We totally get why Rami Malek was so excited he missed his footing. The Egyptian-origin actor's performance as rock legend Freddie Mercury has overwhelmed everyone who's seen it and as Rami pointed out himself in his acceptance speech, the honouring of a non-white actor for playing a gay non-white man is hugely significant: "We made a film about a gay man, an immigrant, who lived his life just unapologetically himself. The fact that I'm celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we're longing for stories like this," Rami Malek said.
Rami Malek attended the Oscars with his girlfriend Lucy Boynton, also his co-star in Bohemian Rhapsody.
Bohemian Rhapsody was the most awarded film at the Oscars this year, also winning the awards for sound editing, sound mixing and film editing.
