Queen’s Live Aid gig was a main part of the biopic about the band Bohemian Rhapsody. The film won big at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. Rami Malek won Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of lead singer Freddie Mercury. The film also won Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Film Editing.
However, the film did not take home the Best Picture award. It was nearly beat out by Green Book. You can check out the full list of the Oscars winners here.
According to Box Office Mojo, Bohemian Rhapsody has grossed over $875 million at the box office, making it the most successful music biopic of all time.
