"Thank you to Satan for giving me the inspiration on how to play this role", he joked.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the victor of the best film drama Golden Globe Award. "This is for you, and because of you, gorgeous", Malek said.

"These three incredible men... they lifted me up and supported me", she continued. The Egyptian-American won a Critics" Choice Award and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in "Mr. Robot'.

Tears and astonishment marked the winners podium as Glenn Close for "The Wife" beat front-runner Lady Gaga as best drama actress, and "Green Book" triumphed over more high profile comedies "Vice" and "The Favourite".

"You have been my ally, my confidant, you are my love".

"We have to say, I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that", the 71-year-old said, to huge applause from the gathering of A-list stars.

Last year, the Golden Globes was met with a black-out where all attendees donned black in solidarity with the Time's Up Now movement.

The two big awards of the night going to Bohemian Rhapsody was a surprise to some who thought A Star is Born was going to clean up on the night.

Christian Bale picked up the award for best actor in a comedy or musical for his portrayal of former US Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice. "I appreciate you so much".

The boozy gala at the Beverly Hilton also recognised Alfonso Cuaron's Roma, a cinematic ode to his childhood in 1970s Mexico City, with best director and foreign film honours, while seven movies bagged one statuette each.

Malek not only received praise from the entertainment industry for his role but also from members in Queen.

The television side of the Globes can feel a bit redundant coming so soon after the Emmys in September, with numerous same nominees as the Television Academy field.
