The Academy Awards held on Sunday generated some controversy after the movie “Green Book” took the honors for best picture. However, some other drama occurred after Rami Malek accepted his award for “Best Actor” for his role as Freddy Mercury in the picture, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
It appears that after the show cut to a commercial, Malek was making his way off the stage when he.... fell off it with a loud “thud!” He was helped back up and conferred with paramedics before being pronounced “ok.”
We are not sure what tripped Malek up, but the Oscar he was holding was not damaged. Malek’s pride probably hurt more than anything else though. Watch the snippet below to see Rami disappear!
