Rami Malek seemed to have taken a misstep while returning from his moment of Oscar glory. Malek was given the Oscar trophy for his portrayal of the Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. However, while returning, the actor tumbled and fell off the flight of steps that had earlier led him on-stage.
Malek also required assistance from the paramedics. Pictures from the event show him surrounded by the neon orange bags of the paramedics team, as he sat in his chair and seemed in some discomfort. The fall may seem dramatic, but thankfully it was later confirmed that Malek did not suffer any serious injuries.
During his acceptance speech, Malek shared personal anecdotes and compared his life journey to that of Freddie’s. He told that how both he and Freddie were both immigrants. "I may not have been the obvious choice, but I guess it worked out," Malek said.
He also thanked the Queen members who were present in the audience. "Thank you, Queen, thank you, guys, for allowing me to be the tiniest part of your phenomenal, extraordinary legacy. I am forever in your debt."
Rami faced stiff competition from Christian Bale for Vice, Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, Willem Dafoe with At Eternity's Gate and Viggo Mortensen in Green Book, but he defeated everyone to earn his maiden Oscar trophy as Best Actor.
