Rami Malek received his first Golden Globe nomination and award this Sunday night, when he took home the trophy for best actor in a motion picture. In his emotional speech, the Bohemian Rhapsody star thanked just about everyone — including the great Freddy Mercury — but conveniently left out the film's controversial director, Bryan Singer. "I'm beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of my chest right now. This is a profound honor to receive this and to be counted amongst such extraordinary actors. I'm privileged to be counted among you," said Malek, 37, while holding his prestigious award.
The hunk then thanked the film's band.
"To you Brian May, to you Roger Taylor for ensuring that authenticity and inclusivity exists in the music and in the world and all of us," he said. "Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you gorgeous."
As soon as Malek took his prize and jumped offstage, fans noticed he'd failed to mention Singer, 53.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Hollywood insiders claimed the director and the actor had ongoing tension while on set. And while neither addressed the rumors of their alleged feud, Singer was soon fired from the film for reportedly being "unexpectedly unavailable" for several days on set.
As if that wasn't enough, Singer was also hit with accusations of sexual assault involving an underage boy — which he denied.
